Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from UK statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other UK-specific metadata information.
Rate of newly diagnosed HIV infections per 100,000 population, by sex, age and ethnicity
These data present information on the rate (per 100,000 population) of people newly diagnosed with HIV in the UK by year of diagnosis, country of residence and demographic characteristics. Due to the relatively low incidence of HIV in the UK, a rate per 100,000 population is used rather than the UN specified rate per 1,000 population. Since the duration between HIV infection and diagnosis is often unknown, new diagnoses cannot be used as a direct measure of HIV incidence.
|Unit of measurement||
Rate per 100,000 population
Rate per 100,000 population = count of people newly diagnosed with HIV / (relevant population/100,000)
Some rates have been suppressed to eliminate the risk of deductive disclosure (numerator <5 and denominator <10,000). Secondary masking has been undertaken where necessary. Where rates have been suppressed no point is shown on the chart, a '-' is shown in the table, and value is left blank in the csv.
For further information and analyses please see the PHE publications 'Trends in new HIV diagnoses and in people receiving HIV- related care in the United Kingdom- data to the end of December 2018', and 'HIV in the UK- towards zero HIV transmissions by 2030, 2019 report'.
Data follows the UN specification for this indicator. This indicator has been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
