HIV Data for Cardiff

Public Health England (PHE) figures come from data received from Public Health Wales (PHW). Figures are based on where people live (i.e. by residence), rather than by centre of care. Evidence is from 2019 for Cardiff, unless otherwise stated. PLHIV refers to people living with HIV and ART refers to people on antiretroviral therapy.

New HIV Infections


People living with HIV


*The 720 is the estimate of the number of people living with HIV (including those not yet diagnosed). This is worked out from the number diagnosed (i.e. in care) which is 670.

Meeting the 90-90-90 Target

2017-19 PHE Cardiff estimates by residence. In 2019, the Proportion of PLHIV on ART out of number of PLHIV diagnosed was 100% The proportion of PLHIV virally suppressed out of number of PLHIV on ART was 96%. The proportion of PLHIV diagnosed out of total estimated number of PLHIV was 93%.

Late diagnosis


Late diagnosis means that you’ve tested positive for HIV after the virus has already started to damage your immune system. We are still seeing more people in Cardiff & Vale testing late for HIV – 62% in Cardiff compared to the 42% average of the UK (FTC Data Report November 2019).
