However, the absence of sufficient research on HIV in the Bangladesh context motivates this secondary research. The present study discusses the strength, weaknesses, and interventions taken to combat HIV in Bangladesh. Also, it presents the key challenges that can potentially hinder progress in combating HIV. Finding demonstrates that the massive treatment gap is the core concern coupled with a crucial population such as injecting drug users (IDU), transgender is making the situation even worst. In addition, the Rohingya crisis is causing a sharp surge in HIV/Infection. This research aims to provide policymakers with information and suggestions based on existing studies and HIV/AIDS prevention planning.
