Abstract

"Mae Chan, a community in Thailand bordering Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar and in close proximity to Yunnan, China, has experienced a large influx of population movement and high HIV prevalence. This community’s response to HIV/AIDS has been chosen and documented by the United Nations Joint Programme on AIDS as a 'good practice' example. To bring the objectives of the UNAIDS’ 'good practice' documentation one step further, the UNDP South East Asia HIV and Development Project (UNDP-SEAHIV) in collaboration with UNAIDS-APICT, organized a training workshop in Mae Chan from 20 to 22 November 2000. Health-care workers, social welfare employees, school teachers, monks, local government officials and communities were invited to participate in learning about this holistic approach to mobilize communities towards HIV prevention and care. The workshop aimed to build the sectoral capacities of Savannakhet, Lao People’s Democratic Republic; Pingxiang-Guangxi, China; Dien An, Viet Nam; and Battambang, Cambodia in community based HIV prevention, care and support. The participants were selected from rural communities with the potential for such a community-based approach. This report is a record of the proceedings from the 'Mae Chan Workshop on integrated
community mobilization towards effective multisectoral HIV/AIDS prevention and care'."
