CASE STUDY:
Breaking taboos in Bangladesh

 

Aids Alliance
In Bangladesh young people are the most vulnerable to HIV. The risks are even higher for young people from highly stigmatised groups, such as sex workers, people who inject drugs, and men who have sex with men.

Social and cultural taboos cause a pervasive silence around sexual and reproductive health and rights, but things are changing.

HASAB, the Alliance Linking Organisation in Bangladesh, has trained 300 peer leaders on issues important to young people, including HIV prevention, sexual and reproductive rights, safe motherhood and addressing gender-based violence.
