HIV prevalence is modelled in South Sudan as there are no recent population level data. The adult (15-49 years) HIV prevalence is estimated to be 2.1%, 1.6% for males and 2.5% for females. The epidemic is continuing to expand with an estimated 17,000 new infections in 2021 along with 8,000 AIDS-related deaths.
The country continues to make progress regarding its 95-95-95 commitments but remains at some distance from achieving these goals by 2030. By December 21, 35% of PLHIV knew their HIV status and 27% of all PLHIV were on ART (77% of PLHIV who knew their status). Viral load coverage remained low but of the 40% of PLHIV on ART that received a viral load test, 84% had achieved viral suppression. Coverage of PMTCT and paediatric HIV interventions, although increasing, is well below what is minimally required to achieve durable public health benefits to address or prevent vertical transmission of HIV. Progress for other aspects of the national, multi-sectoral HIV response was minimal, largely due to the absence of sufficient investment from either external or domestic sources in primary prevention programming and for social enablers, including reduction of HIV-related stigma and discrimination. The HIV response remains guided by the Revised National HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan 2021-2023 and a National HIV and AIDS
