Prevalence of HIV in Spain by Transmission Method

"A total of 17,183 new HIV cases were notified within the 2003-2010 period. The annual rates of newly-diagnosed cases per million inhabitants ranges from 96.4 in 2003 to 90.0 in 2009 and 88.5 in 2010.
"Situation by transmission categories (2010): Transmission among males who have sexual relationships with males was the most frequent (46.1%), followed by heterosexual transmission, which totalled 33.1%, and that of injecting drug users, which amounted to 5.9% (Fig. 6.2). Therefore, 79.0% of the newly-diagnosed HIV cases for 2010 were sexually-transmitted. Breaking the transmission categories down by gender, among males, homosexual transmission totals 56.0% of the newly-diagnosed HIV cases and heterosexual transmission, 23.0%. Among females, the vast majority entail heterosexual transmission, totalling 80% of the newly-diagnosed cases (Fig. 6.3).
"Time Trend (2004-2010 Period): The trend in the rates of newly-diagnosed HIV cases vary depending on the mechanism of transmission: Among injecting drug users, the downward trend is continuing regarding the number of newly-diagnosed HIV cases (18.9 / million inhabitants in 2004 compared to 6.7 /million inhabitants in 2010), whilst the rates are tending to stabilize in the case of heterosexual transmission and are clearly rising in homosexual transmission among males."
