The first HIV-positive case was reported in the country in 1990 and the first AIDS case in 1992. Since then, the number of HIV and AIDS cases has grown and – by the end of 2009 – 8,500 people were estimated to be living with HIV, up from less than 1,000 in 2001 (Fig. 1). The estimated number of women infected with HIV increased from <500 in 2001 to 3,500 in 2009.
