Assessment of epidemiological situation - Bhutan

No AIDS cases and no evidence of HIV infection has been found yet in Bhutan. Three thousand individuals from various groups were tested in 1990 and nearly 7,000 in 1991 and none were found HIV positive.

HIV testing among antenatal clinic attendees was conducted in 13 districts in 1993 and again none were found positive.

Testing of army recruits in 1993 found no evidence of HIV infection.
