Asia Pacific Committed to Ending AIDS

An estimated 6 million people are living with HIV in  Asia  and  the  Pacific  and  only  33  percent  are receiving treatment,  often  due  to  legal  and  policy  barriers  in  accessing HIV services.
Against this backdrop, 30 countries from the region pledged last week to  accelerate the pace of change and committed to ending the AIDS epidemic in  the region by 2030 during the Asia-Pacific Intergovernmental Meeting on HIV and AIDS.
Organized by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), in cooperation with the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the January 28-30 meeting in Bangkok reviewed progress towards implementing transformative reforms on HIV prevention, treatment, care and support agreed to by national governments in 2012.
