Nearly a third (37%) of those infected with HIV in the country have contracted the virus through intercourse (mostly after taking psychedelics which leads to risky behavior), while the rest contracted it by using infected syringes, said Ali Akbar Sayyari, deputy health minister. The number of registered HIV-positive people is 29,414 “although our estimates suggest there are nearly 80,000 infected with the virus in Iran,” Khabaronline quoted him as saying.
