Overall, the estimated number of new HIV infections in ESA declined by 32% between 2005 and 2013. A 2013 review of the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS (HLM) Target 1 on prevention of sexual transmission revealed some successes, but overall insufficient progress in the region. Half of new HIV infections worldwide still occur in ESA region.
