Below are a few sobering facts about HIV and AIDS:

• A total of 33 million people now live with HIV/AIDS. Two million of them are under the age of 15.

• In 2008, an estimated 2.7 million people were infected with HIV.

• Every day 7,397 people contract HIV—308 every hour.

• In 2008, 2.0 million people died from AIDS.

• More than two-thirds (67 percent) of all people living with HIV, 22 million, live in sub-Saharan Africa—including 90 percent of the world’s HIV-positive children.
