1 UNAIDS 214 LESOTHO HIV EPIDEMIC PROFILE

2 214 LESOTHO Overview The Kingdom of Lesotho is landlocked and surrounded by South Africa. It has a surface area of square kilometres and its population is estimated at people. The population is divided into those who live in rural (77%) and those who live in urban (23%) areas. People under 19 years of age constitute 58% of the population; women account for 51%. About 57% of the citizens of Lesotho live below the national poverty line. The adult literacy rate is estimated to be 89.6%. Agriculture contributes 7% of the GDP, manufacturing contributes 17% and diamond mining and quarrying contribute approximately 9%. The main sources of revenue for Lesotho have been remittances from Basotho employed mainly in South Africa and other foreign countries, revenue from the Southern African Customs Union (SACU), and royalties from the export of natural resources such as water and diamonds. In addition to poverty and food insecurity, Lesotho also has the second highest HIV prevalence in the world, with an adult prevalence in 213 of about 23%.

Source: Lesotho CHAI Resource Mapping, 213. Commitment to HIV prevention, treatment and care Lesotho is committed to reaching the global targets outlined in the 211 United Nations Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS. Lesotho is committed to addressing issues of gender and sexual violence as outlined in the National Action Plan on Women, Girls and HIV. Key national strategic documents were either revised or developed after the mid-term review of the HIV response, including the National Strategic Plan on HIV using Investment Thinking, Investment Case for Lesotho, a costed Acceleration/Operational Plan on HIV and a Monitoring and Evaluation Plan for HIV. Lesotho is committed to accelerate the HIV response and reverse the epidemic through the adoption of aggressive and ambitious targets. Achievements/progress in the national HIV response High level political commitment demonstrated by the government, which is providing 7% of the budget towards procurement of ARVs and commodities. The overall health budget as a percentage of GDP is 13%. The government has adopted the WHO Option B+ for elimination of new HIV infections in babies and to keep their mothers alive, and has formally adopted the new 213 WHO ART recommendations. Studies to estimate the sizes of the sex worker and men who have sex with men (MSM) populations as well as a Stigma index study have been undertaken. There has been a reduction in AIDS-related deaths from 22 in 25 to 16 at the end of 213. Challenges in the national HIV response Stigma and discrimination continue to undermine effective responses and deter the scaling-up of services. Continued closure of the multi-sectoral national AIDS coordinating authority. Low demand for HIV prevention and treatment services has resulted in low uptake of services including ART, PMTCT, HTC, VMMC and condoms. TB/HIV co-infection rate is high, at 74%. A shortage of health care providers contributes to inadequate services for people living with HIV. The response to HIV is mainly externally funded. There is a lack of strategic information on sex workers and MSM at the community level. 7
