Asia-Pacific Human Development Report 200308 May 2003
HIV / AIDS
The Regional Human Development Report on “HIV/AIDS and Human Development in South Asia 2003” is the first report prepared under the aegis of UNDP’s Asia Pacific Regional Initiative on Human Development Reports (HDRC) and the Regional Programme on HIV and Development (REACH Beyond Borders).
This Report builds upon an extensive corpus of research on human development in South Asia, pioneered by the late Dr Mahbub-ul-Haq and strengthened by successive national and sub-national HDRs. The challenge of HIV in South Asia has been examined in several documents prepared by UN organizations, national Governments, research institutions, NGOs, activists working with HIV programmes and positive people’s networks.
