Liberia

The background

Liberia has around 29,000 people living with HIV, of which fewer than 7,000 people are on antiretroviral therapy (ART). The country currently has no data on those retained on  ART. Where data is available, it is often not disaggregated by key populations (specifically men who have sex with men, sex workers, people who inject drugs, pregnant women, and youth).

The problem

People living with HIV in Liberia face significant barriers to accessing prevention, treatment, and care services. Such barriers include stigma and discrimination, lack of knowledge about HIV and treatment services, and economic barriers related to transportation.
