Venue: Room 103
Time: 20.07.2014, 11:15 - 13:15
Co-Chairs: Benedict David, Australia
Kemal Siregar, Indonesia

Organizer: The Australian Government through the HIV Cooperation Program for Indonesia
Indonesia has a mixed HIV epidemic: Most of the country has a concentrated epidemic while the epidemic is generalized in the 2 easternmost provinces. Initially driven by injecting drug use, effective harm reduction has reduced new infections. Now sexual transmission accounts for most new infections.

Our panel will explore challenges and successes of Indonesia’s HIV response, and the way forward to address both the concentrated and generalized epidemics. Panellists will discuss how to “step up the pace” to reduce deaths and new infections, and reduce stigma and discrimination. Other topics are:
- Challenges for Indonesian government: political will, mobilizing and managing resources, and treatment as prevention
- Strengthening behaviour change, including condom use
- District-level coordination to support care and maximize sub-national resources
