Authors: Jacques du Guerny, Kellie Wilson, Promboon Panitchapakdi and Philip Guest



This is a compilation of specific responses to mobility from the China-Myanmar border, Thailand and Viet Nam. It demonstrates the essential role multisectoral partnership has in contributing to an effective and sustainable impact for reducing community HIV vulnerability.
The key to averting the progression of development associated HIV epidemics is to implement the Early Warning Rapid Response System in the region (first paper). Save the Children UK, China presents the Ruili holistic programme - at the China-Myanmar border - which has been selected by the United Nations System in China as a good practice model (second paper). The fishermen's vulnerability to HIV is another reflection of challenges faced by economic gaps between neighboring countries (third paper). For construction worker's HIV prevention, it has been found that peer education is more effective than health educators (fourth paper).
These lessons sharing is part of the on-going documentation on multisectoral plans and actions in South East Asia on HIV vulnerability reduction for mobile population by UNDP South East Asia HIV and Development Programme since its inception in December 1998.
