After the reporting of the first HIV case in 1985, HIV prevalence in Malawi rose to nearly 17% in the late 1990s. From around 2000, it started declining. By 2010 it had declined to 10.6%. The underlying factors to the decline are however not clearly explained. Knowing the factors behind the decline is extremely important for Malawi as it guides HIV and AIDS resource allocation and programming in general.
