It is estimated that there are currently around 40,000 people living with HIV in Nepal. New HIV infections have been declining since 2005. Yet, a higher prevalence of HIV remains concentrated among key populations that are sex workers (SW); people who inject drugs (PWID); gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender people. Seasonal male labour migrants going to high burden states of India are also at a higher risk of HIV, particularly those who migrate to cities like Mumbai and Delhi. As of July 2014, 25,222 HIV positive cases have been reported by the National Centre for AIDS and STD Control, NCASC, of the Ministry of Health and Population, out of which 63% were male and 37% female. Furthermore, 7% of total reported cases were children under the age of 15.
The Government of Nepal has started anti-retroviral treatment of PLHIV from 2004. As of December 2014, there are 10,407 PLHIV on anti-retroviral therapy (ART); 5,030 of these are male, 4,558 are female, 36 are transgender people, and 783 are children under the age of 15. HIV-related services such as HIV testing, anti-retroviral treatment (ART), elimination of vertical transmission (eVT), opportunistic infections (OIs) control and treatment, including for TB, Sexually transmitted infections (STI); post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) services are being provided by both the government and the communities. Most of the treatment related services are led by government, while the majority of prevention services are offered by community groups and non-governmental organizations.
