This chapter presents the HIV cases in Papua New Guinea. After an exponential statistical rise in HIV/AIDS cases since 2000, Papua New Guinea has been classified as suffering from a generalized epidemic of HIV and AIDS, indicating that the epidemic is firmly established in the general population through substantial sexual networking, as subpopulations continue to spread HIV disproportionately. At first the epidemic was characterized as urban, but very recently the characterization has shifted just as problematically to a rural emphasis. Both claims are based on patchy evidence and limited reflection on the constant interrelation between the urban and the rural in Papua New Guinea.
