Success was attributed to condom use, increased testing and, potentially, the availability of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), which is being trialled on the NHS and is available elsewhere.

European Union ountries with the highest rates of new HIV diagnoses reported in 2017 were Latvia (18.8) and Estonia (16.6), and the lowest rates were reported by Slovakia (1.3) and Slovenia (1.9).

The Report covered Region consists of 53 countries, where altogether nearly 900 million people live.

One reason for the persistent HIV epidemic in Europe is that late diagnosis remains a challenge across the whole Region.

Almost 160,000 people were newly diagnosed with HIV in Europe in 2017, the World Health Organization's Regional Office for Europe said in a news release Wednesday, calling the latest figures "alarming". In the central part of the Region, the increase was 121% compared with 142% respectively. Data need to be carefully considered as they depend on the transmission mode reported by the individuals.

Also in Germany, an estimated 13,000 people with HIV who are unaware of their infection. That left Europe's overall increasing trend less steep than previously.

The figures came as the World Health Organisation (WHO) warned Europe as a whole was not on track to meet the target by the 2020 deadline, with "unacceptably high" numbers of new infections.
