PITCH seeks to strengthen the capacities of local civil society organisations to advocate for sexual and reproductive health and rights, and uphold the human rights of key populations. Our work centres around key populations, adolescent girls and young women in nine countries in East, West and Southern Africa, South-East Asia, and Central Europe. These communities in many contexts carry the main HIV burden. At the same time, they are often neglected in the HIV response and face many barriers in accessing HIV and SRH services as well as human rights violations. PITCH addresses this urgent gap, and is reactive and responsive to local needs/urgencies that have been identified in its geographical foci.
Around 48.000 new HIV infections are reported yearly. In 2016, ART coverage was 13%. The HIV epidemic is concentrated in specific provinces and high-risk groups such as sex workers. The overall population prevalence is around 0.41% (age 15 to 49). Over the past years Indonesian politics have grown more and more conservative. Religious groups are extremely influential on public opinion and on (local) governments and their policies.
