HIV in India are women

In what could pose a significant challenge for India to meet its ambitious target of ending AIDS by 2030, women continue to account for more than 40% of people living with HIV infection in the country.

The share of women is crucial because of risk of transmission from pregnant women, uneducated and unaware women as well as among vulnerable groups including sex workers.

The total number of those living with HIV is estimated at 21.17 lakh in 2015 compared with 22.26 lakh in 2007.
