4 Times Less Chance Of Being Infected With HIV In Croatia Than In EU

Croatia will once again mark World AIDS Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, this Saturday on 1 December with educational programmes on AIDS topics.

A tent will be set up in the capital Zagreb offering information about infection, testing and treating HIV.

“There are around 800 people with HIV in Croatia, out of those, 26 have AIDS. In the first 10 months of 2012 there were 56 new infections detected. Yearly around 50-60 new HIV infections are registered, which has remained at the same level for the last 10 years,” said Tatjana Nemet Blazic from the Croatian National Institute of Public Health.

When Croatia’s statistics are compared with the European Union, there is four times less chance of being infected with HIV in Croatia than in other European nation.
