Paths to 2015: MDG Priorities in Asia and the Pacific. ESCAP, ADB and UNDP (2010)

Paths to 2015: MDG Priorities in Asia and the Pacific. ESCAP, ADB and UNDP (2010) One of the greatest MDG successes in Asia and the Pacific has been on poverty reduction. Between 1990 and 2008, the countries of the region reduced the number of people living on less than $1.25 a day from 1.5 billion to 947 million, and the region is on track for the poverty goal. Moreover, for some other indicators the Asia-Pacific region as a whole has already achieved the targets – for reducing gender disparities in primary, secondary and tertiary education enrolment, for example, for preventing a rise in HIV prevalence, for stopping the spread of tuberculosis, for reducing consumption of ozone-depleting substances, and for halving the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water.

Punitive Laws, Human Rights and HIV Prevention among MSM in Asia Pacific. UNDP, Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health, Center for Comparative and Public Law, et al (2010)

Punitive Laws, Human Rights and HIV Prevention among MSM in Asia Pacific. UNDP, Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health, Center for Comparative and Public Law, et al (2010) A significant number of men having sex with men in the Asia Pacific region do not have access to HIV prevention and care services as HIV prevalence has reached alarming levels in many countries. If countries fail to address the legal context of the epidemic, this already critical situation is likely to become worse. The implementation of effective, human rights-based national HIV responses requires governments to consider the effect of laws and law enforcement practices on the health of men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender persons.

Report on People who Inject Drugs in the South-East Asia Region. WHO (2010)

Report on People who Inject Drugs in the South-East Asia Region. WHO (2010) There are more than half a million people who inject drugs (PWID) in the South-East Asia Region (SEAR). The majority of countries in the Region have a significant injecting drug use problem and several countries have reported much higher national HIV prevalence rates among PWID—most notably Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and some regions of India. In SEAR, HIV prevalence among PWID is frequently above 20- 25% and has remained consistently high. High-risk behaviour by PWID, such as sharing of contaminated needles and syringes, has become a major determining factor in the course of the HIV epidemic.
