Abstract

"The Asian Development Bank (ADB) considers the threat of HIV/AIDS in the Pacific Region to be real and is concerned about its potentially destructive effects on efforts to secure sustainable de-velopment for the region’s peoples. Together with its regional development partners, ADB wishesto respond to this threat. Thus, this review attempts to summarize the situation in the Pacific Region -what is known about the epidemic and its contributing factors, the extent and speed of its spread, as well as an assessment of the responses to date - with the aim of delineating how ADB can provide the most useful contribution."
