Compared to other parts of the world, the MENA region has a low HIV / AIDS prevalence. However, new AIDS-related infections and mortality are associated with AIDS-related diseases. According to UNAIDS, over the past two decades, new HIV infections have increased by more than a quarter in the region.
In some countries, HIV / AIDS is still a taboo, and the illness continues to fail. Other factors that cause the problem include stigmatizing attitudes of healthcare workers that hinder patients from receiving life-saving treatments.
