Abstract

"During the recent 9th International Congress on AIDS in Asia and the Pacific (9th ICAAP) held in Bali, Indonesia, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) working in close collaboration with government, non government and United Nations partners helped raise the policy profile on key issues affecting the HIV epidemics in the Asia Pacific Region with a series of cross cutting, high level symposiums. This symposium report aims to highlight the key messages conveyed by panelists, issues raised, and points to the way forward for further action.

The “Overcoming legal barriers to comprehensive prevention among men who have sex with men and transgender people in Asia and the Pacific” Symposium was jointly convened by UNDP and the Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health (APCOM) to discuss how effective and comprehensive HIV prevention among men who have sex with men and transgender people can take place in a conducive and enabling legal environment."
