There is no single reason which is increasing the incidence of HIV/AIDS in Nepal. It is a complex issue brought on through many, many factors such as poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, unawareness, migration, urbanization, gender discrimination, an open boarder with India, lack of proper care and actions of parents towards children, stigma and discrimination of society towards infected people, myths and a lack of knowledge generally in society about HIV/AIDS. Based upon the experience of our center, gender discrimination plays a vital role with the above reasons. The results are that children and women are infected in Nepal.
