There are an estimated 24.7 million people living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, nearly 71% of the global total (which is around 36 million). Ten countries— Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, the United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe—account for 81% of all people living with HIV in the region and half of those are in only two countries—Nigeria and South Africa. There are also more women living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa than HIV-positive men: women account for 58% of the total number of people living with HIV.
