The UN Independent Commission on AIDS in the Pacific says that Fiji now has the second highest HIV/AIDS infection rate in the Pacific after PNG. The Commission On AIDS was established by UN AIDS as an independent body to gauge community response to HIV in the Pacific both at national and regional level and has recently launched in Fiji. About 0.5 per cent of the Fijian population are infected with H-I-V, compared to around one percent in PNG.
