Mapping the geographical distribution of HIV sentinel sites for different population groups may assist interpreting both the national coverage of the HIV surveillance system and explaining differences in levels and trends of prevalence. The UNAIDS/WHO Working Group on Global HIV/AIDS and STI Surveillance, in collaboration with the UNICEF/WHO HealthMap Programme, has produced maps showing the location and HIV prevalence of HIV sentinel sites in relation to population density, major urban areas and communication routes. Maps illustrate separately the most recent results from HIV sentinel surveillance in pregnant women and in sub-populations at higher risk of HIV infection.
