Description

"This document was developed by UNAIDS Nepal and members of the UN Theme Group on HIV/AIDS, in collaboration with the National Center for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC)."

Abstract

"Over the last years the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Nepal has gained ground, and Nepal has progressed from a "low prevalence" country to one with a so-called "concentrated" epidemic in certain sub-groups of the population. For Nepal the window of opportunity is closing fast to effectively address the epidemic. Without mounting a vigorous, broad-based response now, AIDS may become the leading cause of death in the age group 15-49 years over the next ten years."
