Report

The National Strategy for HIV 2012–2016 recognizes people who inject drugs (PWID), men who have sex with men (MSM), sex workers and prisoners as key populations in the context of HIV. The strategy for prevention among key populations also includes youth in general as a vulnerable group and envisages specific HIV programmes for all five groups. People living with HIV (PLHIV) are also targeted as a key population, with specific interventions related to treatment, care and support. It is estimated that there are between 9,000 and 14,000 PWID aged 18–45 years, about 20,000 MSM aged 18–59 years and around 3,600 sex workers over 18 years in the country.
