New HIV/AIDS stats available on GlobalHealthFacts.org

Just a heads-up: GlobalHealthFacts.org, a fantastic database site run by the Kaiser Family Foundation, has updated its figures on national HIV/AIDS rates to reflect the most recent data from the UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic.

Here’s some more info on the resources available (quoted from this Kaiser Network article):

The Web site includes data on people living with HIV/AIDS and AIDS-related deaths displayed in tables, charts and color-coded maps, which can be downloaded for custom analyses. In addition, GlobalHealthFacts.org’s new custom data sheet tool can be used to compare data across countries. Updated regional HIV/AIDS statistics also can be found on GlobalHealthReporting.org. Several Kaiser Family Foundation fact sheets have also been updated with the new data, and the Kaiser Family Foundation has produced new fact sheets on HIV/AIDS in Latin America and Mexico in preparation for next week’s XVII International AIDS Conference (KFF release, 7/30).
