HIV/AIDS & Mobility in South-East Asia: Rapid Assessment. United Nations Regional Task Force Secretariat & UNDP Regional Centre in Bangkok (2008)

HIV/AIDS & Mobility in South-East Asia. UNRTF (2008) There are signs of progress in reducing the pre-valence of HIV in some countries in the region. For example in Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia, where despite the earlier presence of generalized HIV epidemics, the number of new infections per year has declined. In Cambodia and Myanmar, the general prevalence is now below 1% (0.9% and 0.7% respec-tively), according to the latest 2007 estimates. In contrast, Indonesia is experiencing one of the fastest growing HIV epidemics in Asia, through injecting drug users (IDUs) and men having unprotected sex with multiple partners. Viet Nam also saw a rapid increase of people living with HIV from 2000 to 2005, driven by injecting drug use and unprotected sex.
