Bangladesh is one of the countries of Asian region where HIV incidence rate has increased by over 25% between 2001 and 2012. Bangladeshi population is highly vulnerable for high-risk behavior and unsafe practice. HIV prevalence has continued to rise in the general population. Out of total reported new HIV cases, female population had increased from 32% to 36% from 2007 to 2013 respectively. Among these groups, more than 60% are housewives. Under the national HIV response, Save the Children is providing care and support for people mostly affected by HIV/AIDS besides preventive measures. Having ARV provision with country wide coverage aim to provide prophylactic co-trimoxazole, laboratory assessment for ARV eligibility, viral load monitoring and hospital care services maintaining national guidelines. However, for care & support, PLHIV are referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH), the only public hospital and icddrb, a non-government hospital for inpatient care that includes nutritional support, medicine, blood transfusion and lab investigations. Program data shows that 63% (34) out of total 54 PLHIV who were sent to the hospital care at the end of September, 2013, were female and this proportion is increasing compared to similar time in last year (40%). Male dominated social context, delayed diagnosis for being stigmatized, improper follow up might contribute here. Access to HIV testing with increasing vulnerabilities among female population is vital. By strengthening national health system, government with relevant stakeholders has to ensure universal access to clinical management irrespective of male/female HIV(+) for cessation and further prevention.
