Thailand Can Lead Asia To End AIDS

Bangkok Post: Thailand leads way to ending AIDS
Michel Sidibé, UNAIDS executive director

“Thailand has set the global standard for how a country can effectively respond to AIDS. … This month, through its innovative Ending AIDS by 2030 strategy, Thailand became the first country in Asia to offer HIV treatment to every person living with HIV. … Even with an AIDS response as advanced as Thailand’s, HIV services still do not reach some people. … Stigma and discrimination impede access to HIV prevention and care services. … Thailand and other ASEAN countries can seize this opportunity. The strengths of the region are science, speed, and scale. If we add strategic investing into the mix, we have a winning combination. With Thailand showing the way, the region could become the very first to end the AIDS epidemic” (10/27).
