National HIV Serological Surveillance, 2004-2005: Sixth Round Technical Report. National AIDS/STD program Bangladesh (2005) Bangladesh has carried out serological surveillance annually since 1998 and from the very beginning has recorded the highest HIV rates in injection drug users in Central city A. This rate has been steadily rising over the years and now, during the 6th round, it is at 4.9%.    The geographical coverage of injection drug users in surveillance has increased dramatically over the rounds, with only one city being covered in the 1st round to 17 cities in the 6th round.

HIV in Bangladesh: The Present Scenario, 2004: A Summary of Key Findings from the Fifth Round of Serological and Behavior Surveillance for HIV in Bangladesh (2003-2004). National AIDS/STD Program Bangladesh (2004)

HIV in Bangladesh: The Present Scenario, 2004: A Summary of Key Findings from the Fifth Round of Serological and Behavior Surveillance for HIV in Bangladesh (2003-2004). National AIDS/STD program Bangladesh (2004) The HIV epidemic in Bangladesh, from an epidemiological perspective, is evolving rapidly. While still a low prevalence country for overall HIV rates, a small pocket of IDU under second generation surveillance1 has shown an HIV prevalence increase from 1.4% to 4% to 8.9% (in one locality) in the past three years. Simultaneously recent Behavioral Surveillance Survey (BSS) data indicate an increase in risk behaviors such as sharing of injecting equipment and a decline in consistent condom use in sexual encounters between IDUs and
female sex workers.
