Asia and Eastern Europe

We’re on the frontline in Asia and Eastern Europe, supporting the marginalised groups most at risk of HIV infection.

Asia and Eastern Europe face similar challenges when it comes to HIV prevention and treatment, with marginalised and criminalised groups disproportionately affected by HIV and efforts to protect their rights met with mixed results. In eastern Asian countries, like Indonesia and Vietnam, injecting drug use is a key cause of new HIV infections.

From Ukraine to Myanmar, we are working with our partners to change this.

Our programmes are designed to respond to local need but range from needle exchanges to HIV programmes aimed at improving healthcare services specifically for sex workers, men who have sex with men and people living with HIV.

Did you know?

  • The HIV epidemic in eastern Europe and central Asia has grown by 30% since 2010.
  • Only 36% of people living with HIV in eastern Europe and central Asia are on treatment.
  • 74% of people living with HIV in Asia and the Pacific were aware of their HIV status in 2017.
  • Stigma and discrimination persists: 50% or more of people surveyed in Afghanistan, Indonesia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Pakistan and Timor Leste said they would not buy vegetables from a vendor living with HIV.
