In a report on "The Impact of AIDS" the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (Population Division) estimates that the number of people infected with HIV has reached one million in China (and six million in India). They also expect that prior to 2025 AIDS will be causing 18 million additional deaths in China (and 31 million more deaths in India).
