Summary

Of all HIV-positive people worldwide, more than two thirds live in Sub-Saharan Africa. Using updated data from UNAIDS, this article analyses whether there is still a signi­ficant increase in HIV in this region or whether national and international programmes and campaigns have successfully contributed to slowing down the epidemic or even reversing its trend. The historical context of the global pandemic of HIV/AIDS is discussed and regional specificities of the HIV spread in the UNAIDS African macro-regions are outlined. The issue of the key factors in the battle against HIV across the Sub-Saharan countries in the second decade of the 21st century is also considered.

Key words:
HIV/AIDS – Sub-Saharan Africa – regions – ART – history of the spread of HIV/AIDS – pandemics
