Bali, Indonesia

Catalyzing the implementation of collaborative HIV/TB activities in the Asia and Pacific regions is a key priority. This region has more than half of the global burden of TB and 12% of the global burden of HIV. To this end the meeting "From Mekong to Bali: scale up of HIV/TB collaborative activities in Asia Pacific" was organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with the HIV/TB Working Group of the Stop TB Partnership. 127 people from 18 countries participated in the meeting with representation from all high TB and HIV burden countries. Participants shared experiences and best practices to inform plans to accelerate the implementation of nation-wide scale up of collaborative HIV/TB activities. The meeting followed on from the first regional HIV/TB meeting held in the Mekong sub region in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in October 2004. National TB and HIV program managers were joined by a broad range of AIDS and TB stakeholders active in the Asia and Pacific regions, members of the HIV/TB Working Group and representatives of bilateral and multilateral organizations, NGOS, and faith based organizations. The presentations and posters from the meeting are available below.
