The report, prepared jointly with the WHO Regional Office for Europe, presented data on HIV and AIDS for the whole European Region, covering a population of nearly 900 million people, of which around 508 million live in the EU/EEA.
The day was also an opportunity to disseminate information about the status of the HIV pandemic.
