Mapping & Size Estimation Of Most-At-Risk-Population In Nepal-2011: Vol.1 Male Sex Workers, Transgender & Their Clients
PDF File Size: 1.61 MB | Download   
Nepal conducted a mapping and size estimation exercise of Most At Risk Population (MARPs) in consideration of the epidemic’s nature, availability of limited information on the MARP groups of Female Sex Workers (FSWs), Male Sex Workers, Transgenders and their Clients (MTCs), and Injecting Drug Users (IDUs) as well as the need for a more robust and evidence informed response to HIV for maximizing results. Mapping and size estimation was conducted under the leadership of the HIV/AIDS and STI Control Board (HSCB) and National Centre for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC) and was enabled by the financial and technical support of UNAIDS, World Bank, UNDP, UNODC and FHI Nepal/USAID. The Steering Committee on Mapping and Size Estimates of MARP Groups closely monitored the process and provided close supervision throughout the course of the study.
This report presents the data and key findings emerging through the mapping and size estimation exercise of the MTCs. The mapping and size estimation exercise included the following three groups: Male Sex Workers (MSW), Transgenders (TGs) and men having sex with men (MSM) clients of TGs and MSWs. Thus, it does not include the entire MSM population in the country, thereby flagging a knowledge gap on estimating total MSM size in Nepal.
The specific aims of the mapping and size estimation exercise were firstly, developing comprehensive maps of MTC sites; secondly, estimating the size of MTCs at district and national levels; and thirdly, studying MTC behavioural and background characteristics. Mapping and size estimation was conducted across the 35 selected districts in the following 6 epidemic regions used for mapping of the country: Highway Districts, Kathmandu Valley, West and Mid-west Hill, Far- Western Hill, Eastern Hill and Remaining Hill regions. The mapping data of the 35 selected districts across 6 epidemic regions was extrapolated for estimating the size of MTCs according to the similarity of risk and vulnerability present in the districts.
