HIV epidemics are rapidly rising within some countries and some populations across Asia and the Pacific. This webinar sought to highlight new and emerging developments in the HIV response, with a focus on PrEP – as a powerful tool in a comprehensive package of HIV services – across the region.

Presented by the ASHM Global Division, with support from Viatris, the webinar was chaired by Professor Charlie Gilkes and Nikki Teggelove. It featured Dr Heather-Marie Schmidt (UNAIDS Asia Pacific Regional Officec & WHO Global HIV, Hepatitis and STI Programme), A.Prof Dr Jason Ong (Monash University & LSHTM) and Dr Jakkrapatara Boonruang (IHRI, Thailand) and specifically:

  • Provided an overview of the current status of PrEP in Asia and the Pacific
  • Outlined relevant guidance on differentiated service delivery in the region
  • Highlight best practice and key developments in rollout of PrEP
  • Presented findings from a discrete choice experiment survey of preferences for PrEP delivery for men who have sex with men and transgender women in 16 countries of the region
  • Detailed a case study from Thailand which increased availability of HIV prevention tools for cisgender heterosexual females, including oral PrEP and the Dapivirine Vaginal Ring.
