HIV/AIDS

Country profiles on HIV/AIDS

Mongolia


Mongolia is a low HIV prevalence country. In 2012 the estimated adult prevalence was less than 0.1%. HIV prevalence is highest among men who have sex with men, detected at 10.7 in 2012.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), however, are becoming a public health challenge in this country. Female sex workers showed the highest syphilis rate of 27.5% in 2012. Among pregnant women, the chlamydia rate was 14.3% in 2009.

Mongolia has been making progress on its commitment to deal with HIV/AIDS and STIs by strengthening the national response. A mid-term review was conducted in 2013 of the National Strategic Plan on HIV, AIDS and STIs for 2010-2015.
