In Senegal, we're helping some of the country’s most marginalised communities better protect themselves from HIV.
The rate of HIV infection among the general population of Senegal is relatively low, at just 0.4%. However, the percentage rises significantly among people who are marginalised and criminalised, such as men who have sex with men (MSM), and sex workers. In addition, the number of women living with HIV is significantly higher than men.
We’re working in the country to help better protect these groups.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 27.6% of MSM are living with HIV.
- 4.8% of sex workers are living with HIV.
- 22,000 women are living with HIV, compared to 16,000 men.
