MANTHAN Targeted Intervention Project (FSW)
In the target area, it has been experienced that, there is link between Migration and Multiple sexual partners and which leads to high rate of HIV transmission in the area. Migrants are bridge populations for HIV transmission from urban to rural areas and between high-risk and low-risk groups. Long working hours, isolation from their family and movement between areas may increase the likelihood that an individual will become involved in casual sexual relationships, which in turn may increase the risk of HIV transmission. Majority of the male population live alone in groups without family members and as there area disguised sex workers and prostitutions nearby, the problem is number of sex affected persons increased day by day.
To combat spread of HIV/AIDS through Female Sex Workers, our organization has been trying to identify those FSWs in the area as well as came from outside and aware them on the issues under TI FSW intervention program supported by JSACS.
