SHARE THIS PAGE
With the opening up of the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan through transport corridors and movements of migrant workers across borders, they are now exposed epidemiologically to neighboring countries that have higher rates of HIV infection.
This report recommends ways to combine regional and national strategies for containing the spread of HIV/AIDS, especially among key populations at higher risk of HIV exposure. It summarizes the assessments of the HIV/AIDS situations in the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan, particularly along transport corridors connecting these two countries with each other and with neighboring states. And it concludes by highlighting the need for an improved coordination of disease prevention and control at the regional level, with measures such as vulnerability mapping and targeted intervention.
