Impacts of COVID-19 on women living with HIV who use drugs in Nepal


ITPC, in partnership with Dristi Nepal and the Director of the AIDS and Society Research Unit at the University of Cape Town, Dr. Rebecca Hodes, presents in this report the key results from a Covid-19 Rapid Assessment conducted in Nepal from June to July 2020.

The global evidence-base on Covid-19 has been rapidly populated by clinical studies and epidemiological models.

But there is a critical lack of data about the impact of the pandemic on the health and human rights of people living with HIV globally. Informed

From June to July 2020, ITPC worked together with Dristi Nepal (an advocacy organisation of women living with HIV and who use drugs), to gather first-hand accounts of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on women living with HIV and using drugs in Nepal, particularly in Kathmandu and surrounding valleys.
