New study in Nepal reveals immediate need for strengthened HIV and family planning interventions for migrant couples

April 29, 2013

A new study among male labor migrants and their wives reveals an immediate need to strengthen the integration of HIV and family planning services. The study found limited knowledge of HIV and use of family planning services in four districts across Nepal. Of the 690 men surveyed, just 4 percent claim to consistently use condoms; of the 1,028 wives surveyed, only 5 percent claim to ever have had an HIV test.

The survey was part of the Saath-Saath project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and implemented by FHI 360. Read more about the findings in the press release here and publications below.
