About the product

Asia and the Pacific could become the region with the most HIV infections being home to 62% of the world’s population. Several broad development issues, such as poverty, gender inequality, low levels of education, and a lack of basic services and opportunities contribute to the spread of HIV in this part of the world. There is also a lack of information about HIV/AIDS, especially amongst the youth and other vulnerable groups. This report shares ideas and creative solutions for action to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. It also contains stories from community partners working to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and reveals efforts being made to care and support people living with the disease.
