Malawi HIV subnational estimates (Naomi model 2023)

This file includes HIV estimates for all 29 health districts and the 4 cities for March and December 2022 and September 2023. Estimates include: total population, people living with HIV (PLHIV), HIV prevalence, incidence, new infections, ART coverage, PLHIV who are aware / unaware of their status, HIV cascade estimates for antenatal women. All estimates can be disaggregated by age and sex.

Note that these estimates are updated every year, and comparison of previous and current estimates should always be done from within the same annual Naomi file but not compared with previous year’s Naomi estimates.

The Naomi model is the official tool used by UNAIDS, PEPFAR and all other countries in the region to generate sub-national HIV estimates for planning, tracking progress, and setting targets.
