Data type
  • Subnationally representative

Estimates were produced for HIV prevalence among adults ages 15-49 and the corresponding number of people living with HIV (PLHIV) at the 5x5 km-level in 47 countries in Africa between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using data on HIV and geographical locations from seroprevalence surveys and sentinel surveillance of antenatal care clinics.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of HIV prevalence, PLHIV, and eight covariates constructed for the analysis: prevalence of male circumcision, self-reported STI symptoms, marriage or living with a partner as married, one’s current partner living elsewhere, condom use at last sexual encounter, reported intercourse among young adults, and multiple partners in the last year for men and for women
  • CSV files of aggregated HIV prevalence and PLHIV estimates for each country at the zero, first, and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
