The first Regional Dialogue for the Asia-Pacific will take place on 24-25 February 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition to giving a voice to regional and country perspectives on issues of HIV and the law, the dialogue aims to contribute to regional efforts for creating enabling legal environments that support effective HIV response.

The Global Commission on HIV and the Law looks forward to hearing from you if you have worked or presently work in the Asia-Pacific on the following issues:

  1. Laws and practices that effectively criminalise people living with HIV and vulnerable to HIV
  2. Laws and practices that mitigate and sustain violence and discrimination lived by women
  3. Laws and practices that facilitate or impede HIV-related treatment access, and
  4. Issues of law and HIV pertaining to children
