New infections among children in Nigeria nearly 60 000 in 2012

New infections among children in Nigeria––which has the largest number of children acquiring HIV (nearly 60 000 new HIV infections among children in 2012)––remained largely unchanged since 2009. Without urgent action in Nigeria the global target for 2015 may not be reached.

New HIV infections among children have been reduced by 50% or more in seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
