On 26 November 2020, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe published surveillance data on HIV and AIDS in the European Region for 2019.

HIV transmission remains a major public health concern and affects more than two million people in the WHO European Region, particularly in the eastern countries. The report finds that, while epidemic patterns and trends vary widely across European countries, nearly 137,000 people were diagnosed with HIV in the region in 2019, including 25,000 in the EU/EEA.
