In the lead-up to World AIDS Day, marked each December 1, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has launched a series of billboards highlighting global HIV and AIDS statistics. The images mimic vintage fuel pump counters, as a visual reminder that the numbers continue to advance.

According to an AHF press release, statistics about the epidemic arrive from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). Three different billboards state: 1,000,000 AIDS Deaths in 2016, 1,800,000 New HIV Cases in 2016 and 20,000,000 Untreated HIV Cases in 2016.



GLOBAL HIV STATISTICS
19.5 million people were accessing antiretroviral therapy in 2016.
36.7 million [30.8 million to 42.9 million] people globally were living with HIV in 2016.

1 million [830,000 to 1.2 million] people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2016.
76.1 million [65.2 million to 88.0 million] people have become infected with HIV since the start of the epidemic.
35.0 million [28.9 million to 41.5 million] people have died of AIDS-related illnesses since the start of the epidemic.

The 17.2 million or so without treatment. The large amount without is what always seems horrendous to me.
