practice examples of community responses to HIV/AIDS is one of the
activities of the UNDP South East Asia HIV and Development Project
(UNDP-SEAHIV). In the case of the Mae Chan community, in addition to
the Buddhist monks, people with HIV/AIDS, and community hospitals,
the youth from Chiang Rai formed a group and joined their neighbours
to reduce the HIV/AIDS vulnerabilities of their community. Youth are
the future of our society and they are becoming increasingly
affected by HIV. This report is prepared by the youth themselves and
UNDP-SEAHIV had it translated into English in order to share the
good practice with the rest of the world.
