Technical Assistance to the Greater Mekong Subregion for HIV/AIDS Vulnerability and Risk Reduction among Ethnic Minority Groups through Communication Strategies. ADB (2005)

Developing human resources and skills competencies is the Eighth Flagship Program under the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) program strategic framework. The GMS Regional Cooperation Strategy and Program (RCSP, March 2004) aims to reduce poverty through enhanced connectivity, increased competitiveness, and a greater sense of community. The RCSP emphasizes the need to take precautions against the negative impacts associated with these developments, such as communicable disease transmission, environmental degradation, and illegal trafficking. Many of these issues disproportionately affect vulnerable groups such as women, children, and ethnic minorities. At the 13th GMS Ministerial Meeting in December 2004, the GMS governments highlighted the prevention of the transmission of communicable diseases across borders, with particular attention to the developing threat of HIV/AIDS.Download this publication
