In 2010 HIV/AIDS remained the fifth leading contributor to global disease burden, measured as disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), in a worldwide analysis of 291 diseases. HIV/AIDS was the leading DALY cause in middle-aged people in four regions.

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (GBD 2010) ranked the impact of 291 diseases and injuries from 1990 to 2010 in 187 countries, using DALYs as the measurement of disease burden. Researchers used these estimates and DALY estimates from the UNAIDS 2010 prevalence and mortality calculations.

HIV/AIDS emerged as the fifth leading cause of global DALYs in 2010. The DALY-measured disease burden caused by HIV/AIDS differed demographically and by region. But HIV/AIDS was the leading DALY cause for both men and women 30 to 44 years old in 21 countries. These countries fell into four blocks: Eastern and Southern Africa, Central Africa, the Caribbean, and Thailand.

Although these four regions accounted for the greatest DALY burden in 2010, 20% of the global HIV/AIDS burden was in countries where HIV/AIDS was not among the top 10 causes of disease burden.

“In the midst of a global economic recession,” the researchers propose, “tracking the magnitude of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and its importance relative to other diseases and injuries is critical to effectively allocating limited resources and maintaining funding for effective HIV/AIDS interventions and treatments.”

  1. I'm here to give my testimony how I was cured from HIV, I contacted my HIV via blade. A friend of my use blade to peel of her finger nails and drop it where she use it, so after she has left i did know what came unto me i looked at my nails, my nails were very long and I took the blade which she just used on her own nails to cut of my finger nails, as i was maintaining my names, i mistakenly injured myself. I did even bother about it, so when I got to the hospital the next week when i was ill the doctor told me that I am HIV positive, i wondered where did i got it from so i remembered how I use my friend blade to cut off my hand so i feel so sad in my heart to the extent that i don’t even know what to do, so one day i was passing through the internet i met a testimony of a lady that all talk about how she was cured by a doctor called DR Imoloa so i quickly emailed the doctor and he also replied to me and told me the requirements which i will provide and I do according to his command, he prepare a herbal medicine for me which I took. He message me the following week that i should go for a test which i did to my own surprise i found that i was HIV negative.
