Globally, the are about 42 million people living with HIV/AIDS and no major region of the world escapes the pandemic?s invasive presence. However, by far the greatest proportions are concentrated in the developing world where more than 95 percent of cases are located. The United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) address the major issues of our time, including halting and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS.

This publication by UNFPA entitled The Impact of HIV/AIDS: A Population and Development Perspective focuses explicitly on the relationship between the pandemic, population and development. It shows that the spread of HIV/AIDS is setting back progress towards the MDGs and, in some settings, increasing poverty.
