LONDON — Global HIV infections are estimated to have topped 40 million, the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS and the World Health Organization said Monday.

The number of infections has rapidly increased in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and East Asia, they said in the AIDS Epidemic Update 2005. In Asia, infections are remarkable particularly in China and Vietnam, with Pakistan and Indonesia facing a potential risk of spread. In Sub-Saharan Africa, where the HIV/AIDS epidemic is most serious, the number of infections has come to 25.8 million, it said.
