There are an estimated 2,000 new cases of HIV in Germany each year, a trend that is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Better treatment to delay the onset of AIDS is expected to lead to fewer annual cases of AIDS over the next few years, according to a report by the German Robert Koch-Institut. Around 18,000 people have developed AIDS since the mid-1980s, some 13,000 of whom have died. At present, there are around 37,000-47,000 cases of HIV in Germany.
