The program "Expansion of the integrated prevention and care networks of STI/HIV/AIDS in Bamako and the 8 regional capitals of Mali" has as a global objective to support measures to prevent HIV transmission, particularly in high risk groups (blood-borne, sexual and mother-to-child-transmission), and to ensure medical, psychological and socioeconomic care for persons living with HIV. The program supported by this grant targets the expansion of integrated prevention and care networks for HIV and AIDS and sexually transmitted infections in the capital and regional centers. It includes measures to prevent HIV transmission, particularly among high-risk groups, and to provide medical, psychological and socioeconomic care for persons living with HIV. The HIV and AIDS epidemic in Mali, although with a low prevalence of 1.5 percent among the adult population, is particularly affecting groups that are considered at high risk, such as sex workers; who are believed to make up one-third of all those infected.
