ASEAN wants empowerment of PLHIV

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (21 August) -- The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Senior Officials Meeting on Health Development in July 2008 has endorsed the Vientiane Statement of Commitment on the Greater Involvement and Empowerment of People Living with HIV.

The Vientiane Statement highlights the importance of the needs and concerns of PLHIV and of strengthening their participation in the planning and implementation of ASEAN's efforts in combating HIV and AIDS in the region. It contains key measures to advance the involvement and empowerment of PLHIV.

The statement was developed during the ASEAN Regional Consultation on Project Development for Finalising the Regional Proposal and Plan of Action for Greater Involvement and Empowerment of People Living with HIV on 7-9 May 2008 in Vientiane, Lao PDR.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the ASEAN Task Force on AIDS (ATFOA) and people living with HIV from ASEAN Member States; UNDP; Asia and Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (APN+); CARAM Asia; RaksThai Foundation; Third World Network; and, the ASEAN Secretariat.

Last year, the ASEAN leaders agreed at the special session on HIV-AIDS during the 12th ASEAN Summit in Cebu that the countries in the region must close ranks in the fight against the deadly disease. (PIA) [top]
