The epidemic in Nepal is driven by injecting drug use and sexual transmission. There are numerous social, economical and cultural factors that drive injecting and sexual behaviors among various most-at-risk groups. Given the nature of Nepal's concentrated HIV epidemic, the focus of the response has been maintained with prevention programmes targeting key populations at higher risk. Over the period, care support and treatment programmes for people living with HIV have also expanded significantly.
Most recent estimates of people living with HIV show that 42% of all HIV cases in Nepal are among seasonal labour migrants, 15% among clients of sex workers and 26% are wives or partners of HIV-positive men. The prevalence of HIV in the adult population in Nepal is 0.49%.Responses in the country have progressed fairly steadily despite political instability. Policy and strategy development has been reasonably good. The "Three-year Interim Plan" has accorded HIV high priority. The National Drug
Policy and Workplace Policy were also developed in this reporting period.There is significant progress in putting the "three ones" principle in place.The formation of a Semi-Autonomous Entity with the mandate to develop policy and increase multisectoral engagement will further strengthen the national response.
