Country profiles on HIV/AIDS
Fiji is a low HIV prevalence country. A cumulative 546 HIV cases were reported from January 1989 to December 2011. However, there is a notably high prevalence of sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia (for example, 26.8% among pregnant women in 2008). Surveys have also demonstrated that there is relatively little knowledge about HIV, accompanied by low rates of condom use and high risk sexual practices among youth.
