Wed 25 Jul 2018 ข่าวสาร

PREVENTION and our partners were invited to speak at the 3rd Asia Pacific AIDS & Co-infections Conference (APACC) between June 28 – 30, 2018 in Hong Kong.

The 3rd APACC highlighted and addressed the challenges in combating and controlling the HIV and co-infection epidemics in the Asia-Pacific region. The conference was preceded with a tribute presentation for Professor David Cooper of the University of New South Wales, Australia by Professor Praphan Phanuphak, the Director of the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre.

Dr. Nittaya Phanuphak, the Chief of PREVENTION, discussed on the best practices to control the HIV epidemics in the Asia-Pacific region, such as the Same-Day ART at the Thai Red Cross Anonymous Clinic in Thailand and PrEPPY project at the Philippines.

Moreover, Dr. Reshmie Ramautarsing, a clinical physician of PREVENTION, had the opportunity to showcase the success of task shifting under the key population-led health services model (KPLHS) in Thailand across the HIV cascade.

Michael Cassell, the Senior Technical Advisor for the LINKAGES project at FHI 360, Chamrong Phaengnongyang, the Deputy Director of Service Workers In Group Foundation (SWING) and Rangsima Airawanwat, the Chief of Party for the USAID Community Partnership at PREVENTION were among the speakers on a panel called “Key populations-led health service models,” moderated by Dr. Nittaya and Jeremy Ross, the Director of Research for amfAR TREAT Asia. The panel covered everything from why we need KPLHS, examples of KPLHS in Thailand and Vietnam to the next step of establishing quality assurance systems and accreditation that will help sustain KPLHS in Thailand.
