Every minute of every day a child contracts HIV and more than 500,000 children under 15 are dying each year due to AIDS. It is estimated that worldwide 2.2 million children under 15 are currently living with HIV/AIDS.The first case of HIV was reported in Nepal in 1988, and, in less than 15 years, nearly 61,000 adults and children have become infected.HIV infection rates are rapidly increasing due to a lack of awareness among vulnerable group and due to the implications of their socially and economically marginalised situations.HIV has now spread to other vulnerable populations which are not seen as core transmitters. It is well documented that street-based children share an environment and practices that make them vulnerable to HIV infection. This was confirmed in tests conducted by an NGO in Kathmandu in 2002 which identified 41 street-based children infected with HIV.
