High-impact interventions, such as HIV prevention programmes focused on key populations and antiretroviral treatment, should constitute the core of the HIV response across Asia recommends independent Commission on AIDS in Asia in their new report, ?Redefining AIDS in Asia ? Crafting an effective response?.

Welcoming the report, Dr Peter Piot, Executive Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS expressed his appreciation for the Commission?s efforts to bring a new perspective on the Asian epidemic, including its pragmatic recommendations.

?The findings of this report demonstrate the diversity of the AIDS epidemics in Asia and the need for countries to understand what is driving their epidemics and how to reach populations most at risk of HIV infection,? said Dr Piot.

The Commission on AIDS in Asia believes that governments in Asia have the potential to make the ambitious international targets ? 2001 Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS as well as Millennium Development Goal 6 to halt and reverse the epidemic by 2015 ? a reality if they take the decisive steps set out in this new report.
