Since the beginning of HIV infection registration by universities of medical sciences across the country, a total of 32,670 people infected with the virus were identified. Among them, 8,000 lost their lives due to AIDS. It is estimated that 75,000 HIV-infected individuals are living in the country. “The cases registered during the last year (ended March 19), and the first three months of the current year indicate that of all the registered HIV infections, 34% are among women. The last officially reported disease prevalence rate among women was 16%,” Persian language weekly ‘Salamat’ quoted Dr. Fardad Doroudi, UNAIDS executive director in Iran, as saying.
