ADB (2004) The Long-Term Strategic Framework of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) commits it to supporting the pursuit of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the region and in ADB’s developing member countries (DMCs). MDG 6 is to halt and begin to reverse the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency (AIDS) by 2015.

Integrating Young People’s Voices into the International AIDS Conference in Bangkok: Report of the National Youth Consultation in Nepal. Unknown Author (2004)

Integrating Young People’s Voices into the International AIDS Conference in Bangkok: Report of the National Youth Consultation in Nepal. Unknown Author (2004) Nepal’s first cases of HIV/AIDS were reported in 1988. At the end of 2003 it was estimated that 62.000 people were living with HIV/AIDS. The epidemic assessments reveal a low prevalence among the general population and that so far HIV/AIDS is still concentrated among certain groups like Female Sex Workers (FSW), Intravenous Drug Users (IDUs) and labor migrants. However as shown by global experience and specific studies conducted in Nepal the young people remain highly vulnerable to the disease.

Adolescent Substance Use: Risk and Protection. ESCAP, UNODC and UN (2003)

Adolescent Substance Use: Risk and Protection. ESCAP, UNODC and UN (2003) Drug use among youth has increased exponentially in South-East Asia, affecting younger and wider segments of society. Amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS), mainly amphetamines, methamphetamines and ecstasy, are the main problem drugs in the subregion and their use has increased dramatically in recent years. There has been a notable trend of increased ATS use among young people. Overall substance abuse among high school and college students in this region doubled between 1994 and 1998, and it appears to have doubled again in 1999 with ATS being the main substances responsible for the rise (UN ODCCP 2002).

Learning, Sharing to Action: HIV/AIDS Prevention among Young People in South Asia. UNICEF (2003)

Learning, Sharing to Action: HIV/AIDS Prevention among Young People in South Asia. UNICEF (2003) Young people are at the centre of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. It is no different in the countries of South Asia, where the HIV/AIDS epidemic disproportionately affects young people. Compared to other regions, however, the HIV prevalence in the countries of South Asia remains low. The window of opportunity, through which a major health, social and economic catastrophe can be averted, is still open. Rapid acceleration and expansion of HIV/AIDS prevention activities amongst, with and by young people in the countries of South Asia is the most powerful force against the epidemic.
