National Estimates of ADULT HIV Infections Nepal - 2003
PDF File Size: 709 KB | Download   
For the first time, adult HIV cases for Nepal have been estimated using available data on four epidemic regions namely, Kathmandu Valley, highway districts, Far Western Hills districts and the remaining hill districts. Kathmandu Valley has the highest epidemic scenario as HIV among injecting drug users (IDUs) and female sex workers (FSWs) in the valley is quite high. Similarly, due to the emerging HIV dynamics among the labour migrants in the Far-Western Hill Districts, this region also has critical conditions. In total about 60,000 adult HIV cases have been estimated in the highway districts. About 26 percent of HIV cases are women. Among the high risk groups,seasonal labour migrants contribute among 40 percent of HIV cases followed by 18 percent clients of sex workers and 14 percent IDUs. About 15 percent HIV cases are women from rural area of Nepal. Relatively better data were available in recent years for the estimation of HIV cases. However,data gaps have been felts. Particularly, HIV/AIDS sentinel surveillance (HSS) is not regular and it's coverage of high risk groups is to be reviewed and expanded. Particularly, HSS system should address the issues of labour migrants and its methodology should be reviewed and strengthened.
