The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and the consequences of infection continue to challenge the global community. In 2007, an estimated 33 million people were living with HIV, and of those, 1.7million were newly diagnosed. In Europe, the rate of reported cases of HIV infection has increased from 55 per million population in 2000 to 77 per million population by 2007.

The purpose of this report is to present data on those cases of HIV and AIDS that were reported to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) during 2008.
