Creating an Enabling Legal and Policy Environment in Asia-Pacific for Young People to Access HIV Testing and Services. UNESCO, UNFPA and UNAIDS. (2015)


The Asia-Pacific Intergovernmental Meeting (IGM) on AIDS, UNESCO, UNAIDS and UNFPA have released an infographic on creating an enabling legal and policy environment in Asia-Pacific for young people to access HIV testing and services. 

The 10 Asia-Pacific countries profiled in the infographic have taken steps to enable young people under 18 to access testing without parental consent, applying different approaches.

Such policies and laws recognize adolescents’ evolving capacities to make decisions about their own health and well-being, and are part of comprehensive legislation guaranteeing young people’s right to the highest attainable standard of health.
