Mexico and HIV/AIDS

In Mexico, as in other countries, AIDS has become a complex healthcare challenge, with many psychological, social, ethical, economic, and political dimensions that transcend the usual focus of healthcare.

In most Latin American countries the epidemic is classified as "concentrated" in specific populations. Seroprevalence rates in these at-risk populations range from one to 25 percent.

Mexico ranks 13th globally and third in the Americas in the total number of HIV cases reported. However, when rated on the accumulated number of cases, Mexico ranks 69th globally, 29th in Latin America and the Caribbean, and in 11th place in the Americas, which reflects a comparatively low incidence rate.
