Message from Governor of Bangkok

“With a third of the country’s new HIV infections, Bangkok lies at the heart of Thailand’s AIDS epidemic. As Governor of Bangkok I strongly believe we must reach people being left behind. Bangkok has joined the global Fast-Track Cities initiative and as part of our commitment, we expand HIV services and improve access to testing and treatment, through decentralized health units and community based organizations. Catalyzing innovation for people who need it most, pursuing integration and strong partnerships are at the heart of the Bangkok’s achievements.”

Pol Gen Aswin Kwanmuang
Governor of Bangkok
Message from Deputy Governor of Bangkok

“If we do not Fast-Track our HIV response during the next three years, we will fail to use this small window of opportunity. Bangkok has now to ensure we end AIDS by 2030. We must work closely with communities and partners to undertake a series of transformative shifts at all levels. If we work together, we will share the amazing rewards of ending AIDS as a public health threat.”

Mr.Taweesak Lertprapan
Deputy Governor of Bangkok
Message from Deputy Permanent Secretary

“’Putting people at the center’” is a core approach to achieve the 90-90-90 targets by 2020 and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). Bangkok’s response focuses on the people who are at greatest risk and ensures a continuum of prevention, treatment and care services that are appropriate, accessible for Bangkok residents, other Thailand the city’s substantial migrant population. The approach empowers individuals to stay healthy and community groups from key populations to take collective ownership of programmes in order to achieve the most effective HIV response.”

Community Leadership Messages

“The faster people get tested for HIV, the faster they can get treated and live normal lives. Once you know your status, HIV is like any other chronic disease where you can take medicine every day and learn how to be healthy again.”

Dr. Sopon Mekthon
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Public Health
Department of Disease Control at the Ministry of Public Health

“HIV testing and PrEP is key for Thailand at this moment to be able to visualize the ending AIDS goal in one and half decades from now. I couldn’t see how we could do that without the involvement of communities and expansion of the community-based model.”

Dr. Nittaya Phanuphak
Chief of the Prevention Unit
Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Center

“When it comes to gender sensitivity and transgender identity in health care, gaps remain in many legal frameworks and health policies across Asia. But the health needs are there, and it is important that we adequately address them. We are proud to be part of this movement to improve the health care of people in Thailand and across the region.”

Dr. Praphan Phanuphak
Director
Thai Red Cross Society AIDS Research Centre

“The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stands together with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) in its commitment to the 90-90-90 goals for HIV control . While much progress has already been made to achieve these goals, we must accelerate the implementation of new, targeted prevention and treatment interventions, the strengthening of health systems, and foster closer multi-stakeholder partnerships. With commitment and focus, together we can finally end the HIV epidemic.”

Dr. Thierry Roels
Director
Division of Global HIV and TB (DGHT), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

“Strong partnerships between government, civil society, private sector and affected communities are critical to ending AIDS.  By working together, we can ensure that all people have access to HIV and AIDS services and that no one is left behind.”

Aaron Schubert
Director
Office of Public Health, USAID | Asia

“We will not end AIDS if we do the same old -  think the same old! We need a paradigm shift to keep up with the HIV and AIDS epidemic.”

Surang Janyam
Director
