The Executive Director of UNAIDS is in Mauritius to assess the work carried out on the spot and structures put in place locally, as relates the Le Mauricien newspaper.
 
As a reminder, according to official figures for August 2013, the Ministry of health in Mauritius, the HIV/AIDS virus affects 5.682 HIV-positive people on the island including 1,208 women.
 
However, the number of HIV-positive in Mauritius would be much higher and would be valued at about 10,700, or more than 5,000 people who are unaware of having contracted the AIDS virus.
