LPPM-Unair: Joint Seminar on “ How to Solve the Increasing of HIV and AIDS Spreadness (Penanggulangan Penyebaran HIV/AIDS di Surabaya)
Pelaksanaan : 30-04-2008 s.d 22-05-2008
Airlangga University, CCCL, and AIEF
Thursday, May 22th 2008.
Asia is the world’s largest continent and home to more than half of the global population, including several million people living with HIV. Asian countries face diverse AIDS epidemics, but across the region, members of key risk groups – including injecting drug users, sex workers and their clients, and men who have sex with men – are disproportionately affected. Excluding sub-Saharan Africa, more people are living with HIV in Asia than in any other region of the world.
Most people living with HIV in Asia became infected through unprotected sex or injecting drug use. In some countries, transmission through sex between men also accounts for many infections.
- When HIV is transmitted through unprotected sex in Asia, it’s often during paid sex. More people in Asia engage in sex work (either as a client or a worker), than any other type of behaviour that can carry a high risk of HIV infection. High levels of HIV infection have been documented among sex workers and their clients in parts of India, and this situation is mirrored in other Asian countries; in South and South East Asian countries outside India, it’s thought that sex workers and their clients accounted for almost half of people living with HIV in 2005.
- Injecting drug use is a major driving factor in the spread of HIV throughout Asia, notably in China, Indonesia and Vietnam. In China, nearly half of all people infected with HIV are believed to have become infected through injecting drug use, and in North-East India injecting drug use is the most common HIV transmission route. There is often an overlap between communities of IDUs and communities of sex workers in Asia, as those who sell sex may do it to fund a drug habit, or they may have become involved in sex work first before turning to drug use.
- Sex between men accounted for some of the earliest recorded cases of HIV in Asia, and transmission through this route is still a prominent feature of many countries’ epidemics. Most men who have sex with men (MSM) in Asia do not identify themselves as gay because of cultural norms that discourage homosexuality; in some cases they may even be heads of families, with children. This means that MSM can serve as a ‘bridge’ for HIV to spread into the broader population. HIV outbreaks are becoming evident among MSM in Cambodia, China, Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam.
- Mother-to-child transmission is also a significant HIV transmission route in Asia. At the end of 2005, it is estimated that 170,000 children in South and South-East Asia, and 6,400 children in East Asia, were living with HIV, most of whom became infected through mother-to-child transmission.
High levels of HIV infection are found amongst IDUs in Indonesia, and also among sex workers and their clients. Around 170,000 people in Indonesia are living with HIV, and it’s feared that this figure could suddenly rise in coming years due to several factors: the country’s extensive sex industry; limited testing and treatment clinics and laboratories for sexually transmitted infections (STIs); a highly mobile population; a rapidly growing population of people who inject drugs; and the challenges created by major economic and natural crises that Indonesia has experienced (the Asian financial crisis heavily affected the country in 1997, and the 2004 Tsunami devastated parts of Northern Sumatra, the largest island in Indonesia).
- To increase knowledge among people who care on HIV and AIDS in order to increase awareness to the government program, non government organization (NGO’s) program and university program in solving HIV and AIDS problems in Surabaya
- To increase the involvement and sense of belonging of high risk group (sex workers, injecting drug use/IDU’s, men who have sex men/MSM, and mother-to-child transmission) in order to help their local community
