It's absolute numbers, so countries with large populations are more likely to end up on the list.

Ukraine has the highest HIV prevalence rate in Europe. Almost all of it from a big spike in IV drug use there following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Still, it's only at 3% which is much lower than most Sub-Saharan African countries, but as sillie points out, there are a lot of people living in Ukraine. Indonesia has a huge population but the HIV rate there is miniscule, even though it's also increasing there faster than almost anywhere.

All of this shows up in my own quiz I did on the subject.

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (a subgroup of retrovirus) that causes HIV infection and over time acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). AIDS is a condition in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive. Without treatment, average survival time after infection with HIV is estimated to be 9 to 11 years, depending on the HIV subtype. In most cases, HIV is a sexually transmitted infection and occurs by contact with or transfer of blood, pre-ejaculate, semen, and vaginal fluids. Non-sexual transmission can occur from an infected mother to her infant through breast milk. An HIV-positive mother can transmit HIV to her baby both during pregnancy and childbirth due to exposure to her blood or vaginal fluid. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.
