HSS 9th round 2011

The findings in this report are in general very encouraging as it shows that the overall prevalence of HIV in populations most at risk remains below 1% and most importantly, HIV prevalence has declined among people who inject drugs in Dhaka from 7% to 5.3%. Moreover, hepatitis C has also decline which is a marker for unsafe injecting practices. Thus, the data suggest that our intervention programmes are having a positive effect. Overall the most number of HIV positive people, irrespective of population groups, were in Dhaka despite the decline in the proportion of HIV positives among people who inject drugs.
