CONSULTATION REPORT Access to and availability of SRH and HIV services for Young Key Populations

Original Title: 
CONSULTATION REPORT Access to and availability of SRH and HIV services for Young Key Populations
Resource Type: 
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.
