Looking For HIV Testing in Indonesia? Find HIV Center
AHF Indonesia has been implementing HIV testing and treatment programs in 2 provinces (DKI Jakarta and West Java) since July 2016. In addition, it gradually expanded its services to other regions. The services offered include patient laboratory tests, free ART drugs, and capacity building for hospital staff. Meanwhile, the advocacy programs were conducted through meetings arranged with the government in order to revise the national and provincial community testing and early treatment strategies.
AHF Indonesia has objectives to promote health and well-being among people living with HIV and to avoid death from early caused opportunistic infection. In recent years, the primary driver of the HIV epidemic has been shifted from the injection of drugs to sexual transmission. Most of the key populations are in urban and peri-urban areas. Key affected groups continue to report high-risk behavior and insufficient awareness about HIV. Young people and other key populations can have more chances to learn about safe sex and the prevention of HIV/STIs.
In 2020, AHF Indonesia started cooperation with the Ministry of Social Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia for 2020-2023. The focus of the cooperation program between AHF Indonesia and the Ministry of Social Affairs relates to Social Rehabilitation Program in HIV Prevention, HIV Early Detection, Treatment, Therapy, and Support towards People Living with HIV (PLHIV). It aims to improve HIV early detection and infection prevention, assist the PLHIV in reaching effective treatment and therapy, and support improvements in HIV program quality with mentoring and empowerment to improve the family and community’s living quality.
In general, there were an estimated 540,000 persons living with HIV (PLHIV) in Indonesia, with 25,000-28,000 new HIV infection cases in 2021 (Source: UNAIDS). Ministry of Health reported 456,453 cases by the end of 2021, and 86.4 percent of the cases were the productive ages. HIV epidemic in Indonesia has been going on since 1987, and Indonesia is categorized as a low concentrated epidemic among key populations.
