New data released by the Central Bureau of Statistics Nepal shows that Nepal is highly infected from HIV/AIDS among South Asian countries due to the use of narcotics. This is a rapidly growing problem in Nepal.

The number of HIV/AIDS victims in Nepal has reached ninety-six thousand but the perspective of the Nepalese society towards HIV/AIDS is very negative due to different social problems and fueled by ignorance regarding HIV prevention and brutal discrimination against people with AIDS.

Many children with HIV are forced to leave their schools, and infected women are often abandoned by their husbands and families as well as from their villages too.

Woman HIV/AIDS Victims

Because of this stigma, many people avoid being tested and hide their symptoms of AIDS for as long as possible. According to a U.N. study, more than 80% of Nepalis with HIV have not been diagnosed.
This epidemic transcends geographical, gender, racial, ethnic as well as economic barriers, and thus, Nepal remains no exception.

State of the Epidemic:
The first case of AIDS in Nepal was reported in 1988. As of December 15, 2011, 19,118 cases of HIV infection were officially reported; however, given the limitations of Nepal’s public health surveillance system, the actual number of infections is thought to be higher.
There are approximately 50,200 people living with HIV as of 2011 and that around 60 percent of those infected are unaware of their sero‐status.

Trafficking of Female Sex Workers:
There are between 24,649‐28,359 female sex workers in Nepal with an estimated HIV prevalence of 1.69 percent. HIV infection rate among street‐based sex workers in the Kathmandu Valley is 4.2% due to their highly marginalized status, Nepal have limited access to information about reproductive health and safe sex practices.

Almost 60 percent of their clients mainly transport workers, members of the police or military, and migrant workers, do not use condoms. Nationally, clients of FSWs have account for 4.4% of total estimated HIV infections.

There are as many as 91,000 people living with HIV/AIDS in Nepal states that 40.4 percent of intravenous drug users (IDUs) in Nepal are HIV positive.

An estimated number of 11,000 adult and child deaths have been attributed to HIV/AIDS in 20012. However, well-researched, concrete and consistent data is yet to be determined with the lack of such solid data, those living with HIV/AIDS are believed to be much higher than the estimate.

Because the majority of parents dying from AIDS are between the ages of 30 – 50, and famine persecutions and natural disasters.

No more guardian and grandparents left to care for the orphans and the oldest child must become the breadwinner to keep the family alive.

This means they must drop out of school and do whatever they can to survive. times this means prostitution for the girls and theft for the boys.

It is a dangerous life and their childhood is lost. While many children here live in poverty, they are much more fortunate than the orphans and homeless children who live on the streets.

A UN report states that more than 50,000 children have been displaced and over 35,000 orphaned due to the violent political conflict and natural disastered in this country.

The orphans and street children of Nepal, marginalized by society, are vulnerable to various abuses: they are bought into indentured servitude, sold into the sex trade industry etc. More often than not they are also introduced to the street life culture of drugs and crime.

It has gravely affected the country’s children by exposing them to violence and hampering their access to education and health care. Children are getting forced into the streets and to work in factories and trafficking.

Himalaya Mount Everest Tower (HIMET) is appealing ‘HELP‘ to look up children in different remote part of Nepal and take children off the street, get them into school, and give them back their childhood!
