ECDC study: Nearly 1 in 6 new HIV diagnoses in Europe are among people over 50

(European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) ) A study published in The Lancet HIV showed that while the rate of newly reported HIV cases in Europe remained steady in younger people between 2004 and 2015, it increased by 2 percent each year overall in older people. With around 30,000 newly diagnosed HIV infections reported each year over the last decade, the HIV epidemic remains a significant public health problem in the 31 countries of the European Union and European Economic Area.
