The rate of HIV infection in Kyrgyzstan is higher among marginalised groups than the populations as a whole. 0.3% of the general population are living with HIV – this percentage jumps to 3.5% for sex workers, and almost 15% for people who inject drugs.

We work with the Anti-AIDS Association (AAA) to strengthen the national response to HIV in Kyrgyzstan. AAA support community-based organisations with financial and technical assistance, and deliver HIV programmes to improve healthcare services for sex workers, men who have sex with men and people living with HIV.
