We’re on the frontline of HIV support in Senegal 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 amongst those marginalised – and criminalised – for their life choices, such as men who have sex with men (MSM), and sex workers. In addition, the number of women living with HIV is almost double that of men.
We’re working in the country to help better protect these groups.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 41.9% of MSM are living with HIV.
- 6.6% of sex workers are living with HIV.
- 25,000 women are living with HIV, compared to 13,000 men.
We’re working with ANCS to tackle the ongoing stigma that many of those living with, or at risk of, HIV face.
OUR IMPACT IN SENEGAL
In 2017, ANCS reached:
- More than 66,700 people with HIV and sexual and reproductive health services.
- More than 2,100 MSM and 3,600 sex workers with HIV prevention services.
- More than 7,300 people with disabilities with HIV prevention services.
