"Between 1.1.2008 and 31.12.2010, a total of 1,337 cases of new AIDS infections were reported to the RKI [Robert Koch Institute] (notifications until 1.3.2011). With this, the total number of persons with full blown AIDS has increased to 28,027 since the start of the epidemic. There are however considerable divergences between regions to be found with regard to completeness of the reported AIDS-cases.
"Among the new AIDS cases registered between 1.1.2008 and 31.12.2010, 82% were men and 18% women. With 7% of the infected men and 14% of the infected women, injecting drug use was for both genders in third place on the list of known infection risks. For 22% of the reported AIDS cases among men and 18% of the AIDS cases among women, there was no information given on the infection risk (RKI 2011a)."
