Although nationally the HIV epidemic in Indonesia is still concentrated on vulnerable populations, the negative impacts of AIDS for infected people and their families have the potential to become catastrophic because the infected people are mostly economically productive and HIV and AIDS in Indonesia are disproportionally experienced by poor families. A variety of attempts to reduce mortality rates related to HIV and AIDS have been undertaken, however, the attempts to mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS on families have not received sufficient attention from AIDS program in Indonesia. Lack of concern regarding social protection of the PLHIV and their families in turn will impede the government’s attempts to reduce poverty and provide universal access to health care.

Indonesia is facing a progressing HIV epidemic. Despite 20 years of increasingly concerted effort, largely downstream, to prevent the spread of the epidemic, new cases of HIV infection continue to rise. Estimation shows that by the end of 2009 there were 333,200 people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Indonesia. The number of reported cumulative AIDS cases has risen sharply from 2,682 cases in 2004 to 19,973 by December 2009. Among the cases 25% are women .

This research was started when a wish to answer several questions regarding the increasing number of injecting drug users in Indonesia came up and took form first and foremost where it touched health-seeking behavior related matters. For at least the recent past seven years since reported by the Indonesian Ministry of Health in 2003, West Java has belonged to the higher ranks of injecting drug users, whereas they also represent a greater proportion of those infected with HIV. Reports on HIV and AIDS cases in the Bekasi Region and City area confirmed that up to 2008, a number of 1060 cases in the Regional area and 351 cases in the City area are reported, which lead Bekasi to the second highest area on HIV and AIDS cases in West Java Province.
