Annual estimates were produced for HIV prevalence and the number of people living with HIV (PLHIV) at the 5x5 km-level for 43 countries in sub-Saharan Africa from 2000-2018. The estimates are by sex and for 5-year age groups in the 15-59 year range, and the age groups 15-49 years and 15-59 years. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 95 household surveys as well as 10,351 site-years of sentinel surveillance reporting of Antenatal Care clinic attendees. Data for covariates associated with HIV prevalence were also incorporated from 294 surveys.

This dataset includes:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of HIV prevalence and PLHIV
  • CSV files of aggregated HIV prevalence estimates for each country at zero, first, and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
