Currently, 22,000 Iranians have been infected by AIDS, she said, adding that the actual figure could be around 80,000 as "generally in the world the actual figure is four times more" than the registered one.

Iran has been taking steps to fight the spread of AIDS by making condoms easily available in shops and educating the people of consequences of sex with multiple partners.
