Nepal HIV and AIDS Volunteer ProgramNepal, Volunteer Nepal, Kathmandu Nepal capital In the words of Mieko Nishimizu, World Bank Vice President, South Asia Region, “Nepal’s vulnerability to HIV/AIDS is fueled by poverty, gender inequalities, low levels of education and literacy, denial, stigma, and discrimination. Though the absolute number of HIV/AIDS cases is still low, there are already "concentrated" epidemics within certain high-risk behavior groups in Nepal. Immediate and vigorous action must be taken now to prevent further spread of HIV among groups at high risk and stop the infection from taking a foothold in the larger population”.
In 2000, about 0.5% of the Nepal population was living with HIV/AIDS. Absence of effective interventions will escalate the probability of the majority of the general population contacting HIV within the next few years if current trends continue.
HIV and AIDS Volunteer Duties: To be part of the solution, International Volunteer Travel partners with a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Nepal, to reduce the spread of HIV through voluntary educational and medical interventions. Volunteers working abroad with the HIV/AIDS Awareness program in Nepal will assist with Community Based education on HIV and AIDS and HIV AND AIDS care intervention programs including visiting with families that may be affected and encouraging them.
