Abstract

"This document outlines a strategic framework within which the [3 by 5] programme can be implemented in the South-East Asia Region. It underscores the important need to strengthen the capacities of health systems to identify individuals who need therapy facilitate their entry into the ART programme, provide an uninterrupted supply of antiretroviral drugs and ensure treatment adherence. It also reiterates the need to collaborate with a number of partners from both the public and private sectors and especially with people living with HIV/AIDS who can play a critical role in advocacy, in reducing stigma and discrimination and in educating communities to come forward for HIV testing."
