An ASEAN Work Programme on HIV and AIDS for the period of 2011-2015 has been endorsed to guide the region’s initiatives to combat the spread of HIV and mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS across the region. Regional policy advocacy on priority issues; capacity building and information sharing among ASEAN Member States; and leveraging access to affordable HIV-related care and treatment services in the region are three major thrusts to be implemented identified in the Work Programme.

The Work Programme, in addition, would contribute to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular the sixth goal which is to combat HIV/AIDS. The MDGs are eight internationally-recognised development goals to be achieved by 2015, many of which resonate with the goals of ASEAN. The Work Programme was endorsed at the 18th ASEAN Task Force on AIDS (ATFOA) Meeting held on 23-26 November 2010 in Phnom Penh.
