The Problem

The HIV/AIDS epidemic in Indonesia has moved from a low-level to a concentrated epidemic as the prevalence rate has greatly increased among the traditional at-risk populations. The Indonesian Government now perceives HIV/AIDS to be a serious threat to the country’s national development. It has been estimated that up to 20 million Indonesians may be at risk of HIV infection due to high levels of labor mobility, a growing commercial sex industry and very low rates of condom use.
