Sharing case studies for change: Celebrating and learning from civil society-led responses to HIV and COVID-19 in Asia and the Pacific.

Regional key population networks and civil society organizations from Asia and the Pacific, in collaboration with AFAO and UNAIDS Asia Pacific, will showcase best practices of community-led responses to COVID-19 and HIV prevention from Asia and the Pacific region. In addition, the panel will highlight the way the full, equal and meaningful participation of affected communities within the HIV response offers evidence for the mutually reinforcing frameworks of human rights and public health.

An opportunity to mark the successes and reflect on what is yet to be achieved, the panel will contribute to understanding how community leaders have been translated into specific actions and better health outcomes in HIV and how these learnings can strengthen the world’s response to COVID.


AFAO, UNAIDS, ANPUD, APN+, APTN, APCOM, APNSW and Youth Lead will jointly organize the side event. AFAO will be the focal point.
