Sri Lanka is experiencing a low level of HIV epidemic, with a prevalence of less than 5% in any defined key affected population, and less than 1% of the general population. Stigma and discrimination are among the foremost barriers to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. This undermines HIV prevention efforts by making people afraid to seek HIV information, services and modalities to reduce their risk of infection and to adopt safer behaviours. The second Stigma assessment of people living with HIV in Sri Lanka – 2017 was carried out to assess the stigma among people living with HIV in Sri Lanka.

This thematic report on the ageing population of Sri Lanka is part of a series of reports that the United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA, has produced in partnership with the Department of Census and Statistics. These reports are based on the 2012 Census on Population and Housing and provide comprehensive analyses on important aspects of Sri Lanka’s population dynamics.

Population projections show that the proportion of Sri Lankans above the age of 60 years will increase from 14% in 2017 to 22% by the year 2037. With such a rapidly ageing population in Sri Lanka, it is imperative for policy makers to ensure that social and economic institutions in the county are ready to face the challenges ahead.
