Nepal has a concentrated HIV epidemic, with prevalence estimated as high as 50% among certain most-at-risk populations. Injecting drug users, sex workers, men who have sex with men and migrants have the highest risk of exposure in this context, although prevalence in the general population is currently estimated at 0.5%1 . Young people are particularly vulnerable to HIV and form the largest proportion of most-at-risk populations.Their vulnerability is exacerbated by Nepal’s context of poverty, migration, gender inequity, ethnic or caste discrimination, political instability and civil conflict2 .The country does not yet have a nation-wide HIV surveillance system, prevalence surveys in Kathmandu, Biratnagar, Pokhara and selected districts in the eastern and western terai3 indicate that young most-at-risk populations are concentrated in urban centers and highway areas.Young people are a productive and significant segment of Nepal’s population, with an estimated 27% of the population aged from 15 to 29 years4 .This group is at the center of Nepal’s HIV epidemic. UNAIDS places a high priority prevention among young people and has supported efforts to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS to 95% among young people.
