Slide 7: Estimated number of people living with HIV/AIDS, 2007 Previously it was thought that around 5 million people were living with HIV in India - more than in any other country. Better data, including the results of a national household survey conducted in 2005-2006, led to a major revision of the prevalence estimate in July 2007.2 It is now thought that around 2.3 million people in India are living with HIV. Of these, an estimated 39% are female and 3.5% are children.
Back-calculation suggests that HIV prevalence in India may have declined slightly in recent years, though the epidemic is still growing in some regions and population groups.
