Abstract

"HIV/AIDS epidemic in the Asia Pacific region over the next decade (2005–2010). The purpose of the Report is to define the key HIV/AIDS issues to be considered by the Australian Government in developing the White Paper, and to stimulate public discussion and debate regarding these issues. The Report includes recommendations regarding areas for possible future investment by the Australian Government and suggestions on new ways of working to respond more effectively to future needs. These recommendations were considered at a Community Consultation meeting on the HIV/AIDS aspects of the White Paper convened in Sydney in September 2005. A major focus of the Report is the Australian Government’s role in responding to the global epidemic; however consideration is also given to the important roles played by non-government actors in the response. Where the Report refers to Australia’s role, it is intended to refer to the entirety of Australia’s multi-sectoral response to the epidemic; comprising the efforts of the Australian Government, the state and territory governments, the medical and research sectors, NGOs, and community groups."
