PDF File Size: 280 KB | Download   
In Nepal, the first case of AIDS was reported in 1988. The national HIV sentinel surveillance system has provided data that indicate, there were around 60,018 people living with HIV/AIDS and 2958 AIDS related deaths by 2002. It is estimated that HIV prevalence is around 0.5 percent in the general adult population. Behavioral data shows a high potential for an increased spread of HIV from high-risk groups to the general population.
Voluntary HIV/AIDS counseling testing and referral (VCT) is a major strategy in HIV/AIDS prevention and care. Nepal’s National HIV/AIDS Strategy 2002 emphasizes the need to “establish a non-discriminatory, accessible, voluntary, confidential HIV testing system with pre-and post-test counseling and urges the MoH “to develop a policy and quality framework for government and private institutions including NGOs” as a basis for expansion of services over the coming years.
This document presents His Majesty’s Government of Nepal’s Guidelines for Voluntary HIV/AIDS Counseling and Testing. The Guidelines are based on the recommendations of the Technical Working Group on VCT established by the National Center for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC),MoH.
