Lao
 
PDR
 
UNGASS 
 
 2010
 
Country 
 
Progress
 
Report 
 
Lao
 
People’s
 
Democratic
 
Republic
 
is
 
unique
 
in
 
its
 
HIV
 
situation,
 
and
 
can
 
be
 
considered
 
as
 
the
 
only
 
country
 
in
 
the
 
Greater
 
Mekong
 
Region
 
that
 
has
 
maintained
 
a
 
low
 
HIV
 
prevalence
 
in
 
the
 
general
 
population.
 
However
 
Lao
 
PDR’s
 
low
 
prevalence
 
does
 
not
 
mean
 
low
 
risk.
 
As
 
Laos’
 
commitment
 
to
 
economic
 
expansion
 
transitions
 
the
 
country
 
from
 
“a
 
landlocked
 
to
 
a
 
land
linked
 
country”
 
the
 
risk
 
to
 
HIV
 
vulnerabilities
 
is
 
evident.
 
Increased
 
mobility
 
across
 
borders
 
coupled
 
with
 
the
 
existing
 
sex
 
worker
client
 
vulnerabilities
 
and
 
the
 
several
 
emerging
 
high
risk
 
groups,
 
places
 
Lao
 
PDR
 
on
 
a
 
continued
 
alert
 
of 
 
a
 
new
 
HIV
 
threat.
 
In
 
response
 
to
 
its
 
precarious
 
HIV
 
situation
 
the
 
Government
 
of 
 
Lao
 
PDR
 
has
 
provided
 
strong
 
political
 
commitment
 
to
 
support
 
a
 
multi
sectoral
 
response.
 
The
 
role
 
of 
 
key
 
international
 
and
 
national
 
partners
 
has
 
been
 
invaluable,
 
and
 
coordination
 
and
 
collaboration
 
have
 
strengthened
 
greatly
 
since
 
the
 
first
 
UNGASS
 
Country
 
Progress
 
report.
 
Lao
 
PDR
 
recognizes
 
that
 
the
 
UNGASS
 
Country
 
Progress
 
Report
 
is
 
an
 
opportunity
 
to
 
reflect
 
on
 
advancements
 
and
 
scrutinize
 
gaps
 
to
 
plan
 
for
 
remedial
 
actions.
 
The
 
process
 
of 
 
developing
 
this
 
report
 
has
 
served
 
as
 
a
 
first
 
step
 
in
 
the
 
evaluation
 
of 
 
the
 
current
 
National
 
Strategic
 
and
 
Action
 
Plan
 
for
 
HIV/AIDS
 
(NSAP)
 
2006
2010
 
which
 
is
 
coming
 
to
 
close.
 
There
 
has
 
been
 
much
 
progress
 
as
 
this
 
report
 
will
 
describe,
 
from
 
improved
 
political
 
commitment
 
and
 
enabling
 
environment
 
to
 
scale
 
up
 
of 
 
HIV
 
prevention
 
and
 
treatment
 
services
 
to
 
major
 
improvements
 
in
 
the
 
HIV
 
monitoring
 
and
 
evaluation
 
system.
 
The
 
evidence
 
points
 
to
 
the
 
improved
 
outputs,
 
outcomes
 
and
 
due
 
to
 
these
 
efforts.
 
Despite
 
the
 
aforementioned
 
accomplishments,
 
Lao
 
PDR
 
still
 
has
 
many
 
challenges
 
to
 
address.
 
Developing
 
this
 
report
 
has
 
also
 
provided
 
valuable
 
input
 
on
 
where
 
the
 
priorities
 
should
 
be
 
placed
 
for
 
the
 
coming
 
NSAP
 
2011
 
 –
 
2015.
 
Increasing
 
capacity
 
to
 
monitor
 
and
 
evaluate
 
the
 
current
 
response
 
and
 
thwart
 
any
 
looming
 
potential
 
for
 
an
 
accelerated
 
spread
 
of 
 
the
 
epidemic
 
is
 
paramount
 
as
 
there
 
is
 
still
 
much
 
that
 
is
 
not
 
understood,
 
particularly
 
in
 
newly
 
emerging
 
vulnerable
 
groups.
 
Prevention
 
activities
 
will
 
need
 
to
 
continue
 
to
 
target
 
past
 
and
 
current
 
high
risk
 
groups,
 
but
 
most
 
importantly
 
extend
 
to
 
the
 
newly
 
emerging
 
vulnerable
 
populations.
 
As
 
new
 
anti
retroviral
 
treatment
 
eligibility
 
is
 
incorporated,
 
providing
 
medicines
 
to
 
the
 
expanding
 
population
 
in
 
need
 
will
 
pose
 
resource
 
constraints.
 
Maintaining
 
a
 
proactive
 
multi
stakeholder
 
response
 
in
 
a
 
low
 
epidemic
 
country
 
is
 
a
 
challenge,
 
and
 
obtaining
 
support
 
and
 
resources
 
through
 
both
 
internal
 
and
 
external
 
commitments
 
will
 
require
 
the
 
Lao
 
government
 
to
 
continuously
 
stay
 
one
 
step
 
ahead
 
of 
 
the
 
epidemic.
 
These
 
concerns
 
will
 
guide
 
the
 
multi
sectoral
 
for
 
the
 
next
 
5
 
years
 
as
 
it
 
works
 
to
 
obtain
 
universal
 
access,
 
to
 
achieve
 
the
 
2015
 
Millennium
 
Development
 
Goal
 
of 
 
halting
 
and
 
reversing
 
the
 
spread
 
of 
 
the
 
epidemic.
