Theme: Asia/Pacific Reaching Triple Zero: Investing in Innovation
“Asia/Pacific Reaching Triple Zero: Investing in Innovation”, the ICAAP 11 theme, elicits not only the regional commitment to join global effort in the fight against HIV/AIDS through an inspirational goal: zero new HIV infection, zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-related deaths; but also a willingness as a community to expand the region’s knowledge, best practices, lessonslearned on HIV/AIDS to accelerate progress towards achieving global goals and targets.
“Asia/Pacific Reaching Triple Zero: Investing in Innovation”, highlights the regional response to HIV/AIDS pandemic which is at a critical crossroads as the regional socio-economic landscape of the region has changed in which HIV/AIDS resources are declining and political commitment are needed to be strengthened for fulfilling the persistent gaps. “Asia/Pacific Reaching Triple Zero: Investing in Innovation” will also place an emphasis on highlighting initiatives that effectively address the challenges faced by key affected populations in specific environments and settings. These outcomes will be used to develop evidence-based policies and strategies
to guide the socio-political response to AIDS along with enhancing political commitment and increasing the capacity of local governments and civil society in tackling the epidemic. These policies and strategies will also serve to guide the investment required to deliver an innovative response to HIV/AIDS.
