Joint HIV Assessment Mission Of Conflict- Affected Populations In Nepal
PDF File Size: 692 KB | Download   
In November 2006, a joint mission led by UNHCR and the UNAIDS Secretariat, was undertaken to assess the measures to prevent and respond to HIV among conflict-affected populations in Nepal. Participants were from seven UN agencies, national NGOs and the National Centre for AIDS and STI Control. The assessment was undertaken in three sites in Nepal - Ilam, Banke and Kathmandu districts - that have all been differentially affected by the conflict, are at different stages of the HIV epidemic and have quite different socioeconomic profiles. The conflict has had a profound impact on the three selected districts - triggering displacement and migration, disrupting schooling and, occasionally, access to and provision of health services. It has also hampered HIV prevention efforts and impeded efforts to coordinate and improve HIV services at District level. However, the impact of conflict on HIV vulnerability and risk varies considerably from site to site.In Nepalgunj, the district headquarters of Banke, the conflict was manifest by fragmentation of families and creation of resultant vulnerable household structures whose needs were not addressed due to the lack of protection mechanisms in place.This heightened vulnerability contributed to the increase in male and female sex workers in Nepalgunj and increased number of children and women in potentially abusive and exploitative situations. New entrants to sex work were less likely to be
reached by HIV prevention programs and thus, were at greater risk. Of great
importance to the humanitarian community is that the lack of protection mechanisms in place clearly exacerbated vulnerability amongst women and children, including HIV-related vulnerability.
