Most-at-Risk Populations (MARPs)

According to UNAIDS, populations most-at-risk (MARP) for becoming infected with HIV include injection drug users, sex workers and their clients, men who have sex with men, and prisoners. MARPs are considered at risk for HIV due to behaviors and practices that heighten their vulnerability to the virus. The CGHD’s research aims to improve policies and programs that reduce stigma and strengthen access to culturally appropriate prevention, care, and treatment services by MARPs and their children.
