Condoms are a highly effective and widely used method to prevent transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies.

A global consultation meeting was held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 6 to 7 November 2014, to reaffirm the critical role of male and female condoms as part of combination HIV prevention, to shape an agenda to scale up condom promotion and distribution, and to identify strategies to overcome bottlenecks in scaling up.

Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance (IBBS) Survey among Female Sex Workers in 22 Highway Districts of Nepal Round VI, 2016. National Centre for AIDS and STD Control. (2016)

immage

This Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance (IBBS) survey was carried out by Intrepid Nepal (INPL) under the leadership of the National Center for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC) and in partnership with Save the Children-Nepal. The existing National HIV and AIDS Strategy (2011-2016) identifies Female Sex Workers (FSWs) as one of the key affected populations (KAPs) at a higher risk of spreading the HIV epidemic. This is the sixth round of the IBBS survey conducted among FSWs in 22 highway districts of Nepal. The survey is a part of the National HIV Surveillance Plan (2012) and National HIV and AIDS Strategy (2011-2016). In line with the objectives of the previous rounds of the IBBS surveys, the sixth round of the survey was undertaken to determine the trends of HIV and STIs prevalence, assess HIV and STI-related risk behaviors, explore the level of awareness and understanding of HIV/STIs, record STI symptoms, account incidence of violence, as well as assess exposure to HIV intervention programs and services among FSWs in 22 Terai highway districts of Nepal.

Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance (IBBS) Survey among Female Sex Workers in Pokhara Valley Round V - 2016. National Centre for AIDS and STD Control. (2016)

immage

Nepal is reported to have "concentrated epidemic," that means only a few "high-risk behavior groups" have HIV prevalence more than 5 %. In Nepal, the high-risk behavior groups are identified as Female Sex Workers (FSWs), people who inject drugs (PWID) and migrant population. This fifth round of Integrated Biological and Behavioural Surveillance (IBBS) survey in Pokhara valley was conducted with the purpose of exploring the prevalence of HIV and STIs (syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia)among the female sex workers (FSWs). Besides, it aims to monitor the trends of HIV and STIs prevalence and also the relevant risk behaviors among these group so that the findings from it could be importantly used for planning strategy for HIV/STIs prevention programs and reducing HIV/STIs transmission. The survey was carried out by SAIPAL under the leadership of the National Center for AIDS and STD control (NCASC) in collaboration with Save the Children – Nepal.
