Abstract

Human Deficiency Virus (HIV) targets and alter the human immune system and often leads to a stage of Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). However, the World Health Organisation believed with advanced medical technology HIV/AIDS can be managed and infected patient’s life expectancy can be increased. As of 2019, around 68% of adults and 53% of children with HIV worldwide were receiving lifelong treatment. In this article, we explore the epidemiology of HIV from 2009 to 2019.
