Abstract

"The proposed regional TA will contribute to achieving Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 6, Target 7, to “halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS” in the GMS by 2015.13 The outcome will be a reduced incidence of HIV transmission and prevalence of other STIs in communities and population groups directly associated with ADB-financed infrastructure developments in the GMS. Key outputs will be: (i) enhanced leadership support and institutional policies for addressing HIV risks in the context of infrastructure projects; (ii) improved awareness of HIV, AIDS, and STI among key target groups in the infrastructure settings; (iii) improved access to HIV and STI prevention commodities; (iv) reduced incidence of HIV risk behaviors among key target groups; (v) improved access to HIV and STI treatment and testing; and (vi) improved surveillance and associated knowledge products."
