The United States is proud to support the Asia Region in its leadership in the global HIV/AIDS response. Working closely with national governments, civil society, and other development partners, PEPFAR provides targeted technical assistance to maximize the quality, coverage, and impact of the national HIV/AIDS response in three countries – China, Laos, and Thailand – and other partners across Asia. Throughout the region, PEPFAR is aligning investments to demonstrate and scale up interventions that help those facing the highest burden of HIV/AIDS – in line with PEPFAR 3.0. Specific priorities include the following:

 

  • Demonstrating cost-effective approaches to reach, test, treat, and retain key populations in order to catalyze and sustain broader epidemic control
  • Saving lives and promoting global health security by strengthening the capacity of national and community health systems and working with them to replicate and scale up highly successful models across Asia
  • Building the implementation, research, and advocacy capacity of key populations
  • Expanding and improving the quality of care and treatment for adults, adolescents, and children living with HIV/AIDS
  •  Increasing demand for and access to a faster, high-quality HIV diagnosis
  •  Improving the use of strategic information for more evidence-based policies and decision-making
  • Developing scientific tools and approaches to help PEPFAR programs better plan, measure, and report on capacity-building efforts
