... Data not available.

† Regional data on HIV estimates and prevalence for 2010 are derived from the 2011 Global Response to HIV/AIDS: Epidemic Update and Progress towards Universal Access, which was released in November 2011 by the World Health Organization (WHO), Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) and UNICEF. Please note that the corresponding country data are not revised in the Global Response to HIV/AIDS, and therefore refer to the year 2009.
