Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Half of all women with HIV are diagnosed late in Europe

(European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) ) Many women in the WHO European Region, particularly those in their 40s, are diagnosed at a late stage of HIV infection when their immune system is already starting to fail. They are three to four times more likely to be diagnosed late than younger women. According to data for 2018 released today by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the WHO Regional Office for Europe, women accounted for one-third of the 141,000 new HIV diagnoses in the Region.
