    Survey of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Bangladesh

    Project ID: HI-001 Status: Completed

    The HIV/AIDS epidemic in Bangladesh has been gradually evolving in the past decade. Although overall rates of seroprevalence remain low, the rate of infections is expected to increase. Current responses to HIV in Bangladesh have focused on prevention of the disease with limited resources allocated for treatment, but there are growing numbers of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). In response, Bangladesh is moving towards funding of ART treatment for some patients. This survey, which is the first of its kind in Bangladesh, surveyed known PLWHA to measure levels of healthcare use and expenditure, and the relationship of these to CD4 counts and other symptoms. The results are expected to inform assessment of HIV/AIDS spending in Bangladesh, as well assess the potential implications of expanding ART treatment.
