Strengthening the involvement of people living with HIV in MENA region


An estimated 500,000 people are living with HIV in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA region).

This report provides a detailed analysis of the response to the epidemic by associations and support groups of people living with HIV. 

It provides information on the involvement, care and support of people living with HIV, including current activities, gaps, and stakeholders in the region. It also identifies priorities for action and formulates a series of recommendations to be considered by technical partners and civil society organisations aiming to further engage in programming to work with people living with HIV.

The regional programme Responding to most at risk populations in the MENA region, is funded by USAID and implemented by the Alliance through the AIDSTAR-Two project. The Alliance is working with civil society organisations in Tunisia, Morocco, Lebanon and Algeria that provide support to people living with HIV and men who have sex with men, through the AIDSTAR-Two project.
