Cote d’Ivoire

We’re on the frontline of HIV prevention and treatment in Cote d’Ivoire, helping to reach displaced communities left without proper services.

A combination of political and military turmoil in Cote d’Ivoire over the past decade has caused enormous disruption to the country’s healthcare system. This has left half a million people living with HIV with limited access to HIV care and treatment.

We’re working here to help fill some of the gaps left by this upheaval.


  • 12.3% of men who have sex with men (MSM) are living with HIV, and only 13.3% of these people know their HIV status.
  • HIV prevalence in adults is 2.6%


Alliance Nationale contre le SIDA en Cote d’Ivoire (ANS-CI)

We have worked with ANS-CI since 2005, supporting community groups that are trying to respond to HIV in the places where infrastructure – health and otherwise – is extremely limited.

The risk of new HIV infection is a serious concern in Cote d’Ivoire, because so many displaced people now live in camps where there is a severe lack of access to HIV prevention information.

ANS-CI focuses on helping to strengthen existing – and develop new – community networks in order to connect people living with HIV with the treatment they need and to share life-saving prevention information so that Cote d’Ivoire can reduce the number of people dying from AIDS-related illness.

One of the ways Frontline AIDS supports ANS-CI is to improve their resource mobilisation, enabling them to win projects and funding to deliver more programmes and services.


In 2018, ANS-CI reached:

  • More than 222,000 people with HIV prevention services. This included over 9,000 sex workers, 2,300 people who use drugs and 129,000 older adolescents and young people (aged 15-24).
  • More than 34,500 people with HIV treatment, care and support services
  • 67 community-based organisations with technical support.
