More than 800 cases of HIV have been notified in Ireland this year, the highest figure on record and more than double the number last year.

Statistics published by the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) indicate that, as of December 21, 840 cases of HIV had been notified in 2022.

Records show that for the same period last year, just 388 cases were notified. There was a total of 401 cases in 2021.

The HPSC records newly notified cases as those who have recently acquired the virus, together with people already living with the virus and transferring their care to Ireland.

The majority of HIV diagnoses in 2022 are in people who were previously diagnosed outside Ireland. The majority of diagnoses are in people aged between 25 and 44 years.
