By the year 2000 a cumulative global total of 30-40 million men, women and children are projected to have been infected with HIV.
This will represent a three to four times increase of the present total.
Currently, it is estimated that about 5000 persons are newly infected daily.
Worldwide, the predominant and increasing mode of transmission is by heterosexual intercourse.
Therefore, the number of infected women will equal that of men.
Consequently, more infants will be infected by their mothers and more infants will be orphaned as their parents die of AIDS.
By the end of the 1990s, over one million adult AIDS cases and deaths per year are expected, most of them in developing countries.
