HIV in Albania: An Epidemiological Review (2015)



This epidemiological report outlines the current HIV epidemic in Albania. It describes recent trends in HIV diagnoses, AIDS and deaths and outlines key monitoring and evaluation outputs, including access to HIV care and treatment. The report also assesses areas for development in HIV surveillance and analyses the impact of programmatic efforts on the epidemic. This evaluation builds on a desk review and a country mission which took place from 8-11 September 2014 in Tirana, Albania. Information and data were collated from interviews with key staff involved in surveillance, prevention and treatment and care and secondary sources including national publications, epidemiological reports, WHO and The Global Fund reports.
