Where: John A. Burns Hall, Room 3121/3125, East-West Center
What:

Many claim that HIV epidemics in Asia are increasingly shifting toward the general population, requiring a refocusing of prevention efforts. This presentation explores the evidence from modeling HIV epidemics in the countries of Asia and explores the evidence related to this claim. This issue is particularly important because of the demands to reassess the current focus in HIV-prevention programs on key populations, such as sex workers and clients, men who have sex with men, and people who inject drugs.

His work emphasizes the modeling of HIV epidemics to inform national and global policies for responding effectively to HIV. He works closely with national programs in Asia, UNAIDS, WHO, the Global Fund and other international partners in developing relevant models and analyses to strengthen HIV responses.
