In Nepal, 40,000 people are living with HIV, one-third of whom are women. While prevalence is relatively low nationwide at about 0.2–0.3 percent over the past five years, that picture changes drastically when narrowed to marginalized groups, including female sex workers and their clients, injecting drug users, men who have sex with men, and transgendered women, where HIV rates are the highest. Tremendous effort has been made by Nepal’s government, civil society organizations and development partners to combat HIV through the National HIV/AIDS Strategy 2011–2016. This strategy guided the national response to HIV/AIDS by embracing principles of universal access and human rights and a multisectoral approach; and by acknowledging the myriad challenges facing people living with HIV in Nepal. The new strategy 2016–2021 “Nepal HIVision 2020” that is under development aims at fast tracking these efforts to ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
