Why is it important?

Recognizing trends in HIV/AIDS in Asia is important because it is vital to understanding the effectiveness of current approaches towards diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, cultural diversity carries certain social and religious stigmas associated with the disease. These social stigmas also pose as a significant influence on government involvement with regards to the funding of HIV/AIDS awareness, education, prevention, and the protection of human rights.


HIV/AIDS infection is an ongoing issue in Asia as well as the rest of the world. However, the trends in this study showed a decrease in both incidence and case fatality. This could be due to many reasons, but the most likely explanation is that many factors are working together in a positive manner and decreasing the number of new infections. An example of these factors would be better screening methods, promoting awareness among people, and education on safer practices.
