While the annual incidence of AIDS in Ireland decreased from the mid-1990s there was been a marked increase in new HIV infections during the same period. The major group affected by AIDS was intravenous drug users (IDUs), which accounted for 40.6% of the total. IDU was the highest transmission category for the virus. Decreases in the numbers of perons with AIDS can largely be explained by improvements in medical care and the effect of HAART.
