Myanmar’s HIV epidemic is concentrated among certain key populations, most notably people who inject drugs, but also
men who have sex with men, transgender people, and sex workers.
More than 70% of new infections in the country occur among these groups. HIV-related indicators for key populations
in Myanmar are all very high in international comparison.
Coordination and implementation : FXB International
Financial partners : MAC aids Fund, Alliance Myanmar
Since 1993, FXB has undertaken many HIV-related activities, such as Sunday Empowerment Groups and large awareness campaigns in bus stations around the country. It has also been an implementing partner of the 3D Fund (Global Fund) strategy in Myanmar, in Yangon Region, Mon and Shan States, Irrawaddy Region and the Dry Zone.
In order to reduce new HIV infections, a combination of interventions is offered to female sex workers and other key populations by improving HIV testing services access, linkage to antiretroviral therapy with efficient service delivery, and continuum care.
It is also about providing psychosocial support to PLHIV to help them build resilience for a positive living despite all the constraints of the disease. Health outcome for people living with HIV is improved by maximizing referral linkage to National AIDS Programme.
