PDF File Size: 2 MB | Download   
Nepal conducted a mapping and size estimation exercise of Most at Risk Population (MARP) groups in consideration of the epidemic’s nature, limited information available on the MARP groups of Female Sex Workers (FSWs), Men having Sex with Men (MSMs), and Injecting Drug User (IDUs) population, and the need for a more robust and evidence informed response to HIV in order to maximize results. This exercise was conducted under the leadership of the HIV/AIDS and STI Control Board (HSCB) and National Centre for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC); through financial and technical support of UNAIDS, World Bank, UNDP, UNODC and FHI Nepal/USAID; and with close oversight and monitoring by the Steering Committee on Mapping and Size Estimates of MARP Groups.
This report presents the data and key findings emerging through the mapping and size estimation exercise of the Injecting Drug Users (IDU).
The specific aims of the mapping and size estimation exercise were firstly, developing comprehensive maps of IDU sites; secondly, estimating the size of IDUs at district and national levels; and thirdly, studying IDU behavioural and background characteristics. Mapping and size estimation was conducted across 31 systematically selected districts in the following six epidemic regions of the country: Highway Districts, Kathmandu Valley,West and Mid-West Hills, Far-Western Hills, Eastern Hills and Remaining Hills regions.
Following a brief outline of HIV’s epidemiology in the paragraph below, the methodology and key findings from the mapping and size estimation exercise are summarized.
