The background

There are an estimated 100,000 people living with HIV in Togo, with approximately 38,000 accessing antiretroviral therapy (ART). Since 2010, new HIV infections have decreased by 33%.

The problem

In Togo, civil society is a strong driver of the HIV response and therefore it also fully participates in administering treatment and care to people living with HIV. As a result, some key populations – specifically men who have sex with men and sex workers – are able to more easily access services. Registers at the NGO level are disaggregated by key populations, but not at the public hospital level. However, people who inject drugs are still not being captured in health data and are not being sufficiently reached by prevention, treatment, and care services.
