Background and Rationale for the Program
With HIV prevalence of 0,26% among people older than 15, Indonesia’s HIV epidemic is concentrated among key populations (KP) in most provinces., The exception to this are the 2 provinces of Tanah Papua where there is a low level general epidemic with general population prevalence of 1,8%. 543,100 PLHIV –527,525 adults and 17,575 children – were estimated to be living in Indonesia in 2020.
Based on the results of the most recent Asian Epidemic Model (AEM), the annual number of new adult HIV infections has been declining across all major key population sub-groups (transgender (TG), female sex workers (FSW) and people who inject drug (PWID)), except men who have sex with men (MSM).The modelling also indicates that Indonesia is not yet on course to end HIV and AIDS by 2030. As of the end of 2020, program results showed that 419,551 PLHIV (77.3% of PLHIV in 2020) knew their HIV infected status, 142,906 PLHIV (23.5%) were on ART and only 33,027 people (6.1%) had received a viral load test and were virally suppressed.
The AEM also indicates that 70% of PLHIV are either from non-key-population group or people who do not self-identify as KP. As Indonesia has 277 million people living in 514 districts, with reported HIV and AIDS cases in 496 of those districts, finding these PLHIV that are not part of non-key populations (or who do not self-identify as part of key populations) requires intensive detection efforts (e.g., amongst pregnant women, TB patients, partners of PLHIV, etc..).
The latest IBBS indicated that the female sex worker (FSW) HIV prevalence was 2.3%, with low rates of HIV testing. HIV prevalence among clients of FSW was 1.1%(five times higher than for pregnant women). Clients of FSW constitute an important “bridge” to the general population. In a situation where the brothel closures are widespread throughout the country, there is potential for increased “hidden” HIV spread due to hidden sex transactions. A modified outreach approach is therefore needed to respond to the changing socio-political environment.
