    What is the difference between “1.4 million pregnant women are HIV positive” (across all communities, including high-income communities) and “in 2011 1.5 million pregnant women were living with HIV in low- and middle-income countries”? Does this mean the number of pregnant women with HIV has dropped since 2011?

    If 1.4 million pregnant women have HIV and about half of women pass HIV to their children but only 960 babies are born with HIV each day, what is happening to the other 350K HIV pregnancies?

    Andrew does raise a good question on a point that could use a bit more clarification, but this is still a really well done info graphic. Just super glad to see that the rate of new cases and deaths have come down significantly in the last two years.
