The Associated Press has obtained the first full count of the estimated 8 million Vietnamese women infected with HIV in the United States.
The tally is based on interviews with more than 3,000 people in the four U.S. states and the District of Columbia who reported having tested positive for HIV.
That number is about one-quarter of the total number of HIV-positive people in all of the U.N. countries.
The total number was reported by the U,N.
Population Fund, which is a U.K.-based agency that monitors and monitors health trends in the world’s poorest nations.
It said the number could be higher because people with HIV may not be tested and are not officially counted.
More: The U. N. report says about half of Vietnam’s estimated HIV-infected population is under the age of 25, making it the country’s second-fastest-growing major HIV-AIDS-producing country.
That is expected to rise to nearly one in every three Vietnamese women by 2020.
The number of infections among the elderly has grown rapidly.
The U. S. State Department has said that there have been more than 100,000 new cases of HIV in Vietnam this year, up from around 100,700 in 2016.
