Sri Lanka continues to have very low HIV prevalence. The first HIV infection in the country was reported in 1987, and since 2009, a total of 1196 HIV infections and AIDS cases have been cumulatively reported in the country. As per the Report on HIV Estimates and Projections 2009, prepared by the National STD and AIDS Control Programme, HIV prevalence among the adult population is 0.02 percent, and an estimated 3,000 people are living with HIV and AIDS. There has been a steady increase in the number of reported cases over the years, in part due to the increase in HIV testing facilities and the availability of antiretroviral treatment.
