AIDS Programmes

National Strategic Framework: 2003-2007

At time of update, the plan was under review to be extended until 2010

Overview (UNAIDS 2006):
The IDU epidemic has caused a rapid increase in the number of HIV/AIDS cases since the mid-90s in Jakarta, West Java and Bali, and infections are spreading from IDUs to their non-injecting sex partners, including sex workers. The MOH estimates there are an estimated 160,000 injecting drug users, concentrated in a number of major population centers with at least a quarter living with HIV. The average prevalence from various studies of HIV among injecting drug users is approximately 48%. In many parts of Indonesia the epidemic is being driven by heterosexual transmission between sex workers and their clients. The official estimate of female sex workers in Indonesia is 233,039. The rate of HIV infection among female sex workers is 3.08 % but significantly varies from region to region. In Jakarta it reached 6.37 percent in 2003. The number of men reporting sex with sex workers seems to be rising. The epidemic in Papua is now regarded as generalised. As of 31 December 2005, Papua had reported 832 cases of AIDS, which is a reported case rate of 40 per 100,000 individuals, or 20 times the national average of 2 per 100,000. The official estimated number of HIV infections in Papua is between 8,000 and 14,000, or about 0.6 to 1 percent of the total adult population. Surveys of pregnant women in some areas of Papua (Mimika and Merauke) indicated a prevalence rate of over 1 percent. From 1998 to 2004, prevalence of HIV in commercial sex workers increased from about 1 or 2 percent to 16 percent in Sorong, 15 percent in Merauke, 14 percent in Nabire, 9 percent in Timika and 5 percent in Jayapura. The high rates of sexually transmitted infections among commercial sex workers in Papua (around 62 percent) also influence transmission of HIV.
