More people were diagnosed with HIV in New Zealand last year than at any other time since records began in 1985.New figures from Otago University's AIDS Epidemiology Group show 244 people were diagnosed with HIV in New Zealand in 2016.The majority of HIV researchers agree that HIV evolved at some point from the closely related simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), and that SIV or HIV (post mutation) was transferred from non-human primates to humans in the recent past (as a type of zoonosis).Research in this area is conducted using molecular phylogenetics, comparing viral genomic sequences to determine relatedness.The previous highest number of diagnoses was 224, in 2015.Gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men were most affected.The pandemic strain of HIV-1 is closely related to a virus found in chimpanzees of the subspecies Pan troglodytes troglodytes, which live in the forests of the Central African nations of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Republic of Congo (or Congo-Brazzaville), and Central African Republic.HIV-2 is less transmittable and is largely confined to West Africa, along with its closest relative, a virus of the sooty mangabey (Cercocebus atys atys), an Old World monkey inhabiting southern Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and western Ivory Coast.
