In 2012, for the first time, key populations including female sex workers and men who have sex with men were included in HIV epidemic surveys, allowing for a better understanding of HIV among these populations.6 As of 2016, Botswana does not have a specific strategy that addresses the needs of key affected populations, although its current National Strategic Framework (NSF) for HIV and AIDS makes reference to ‘all inclusive programming’.7 Currently, HIV prevention programmes are reaching only 44.9 % of these key affected populations.

New infections have decreased significantly, from 15,000 in 2005 to 9,100 in 2013, although in recent years they have begun to rise again, with 9,700 reported in 2015.

Around 66% reported consistent condom use during anal sex in the last six months, although 60% were not aware that anal sex is associated with higher risks of HIV acquisition.
