Abstract: In the South-East Asia Region, the majority of people living with HIV do not know that they are infected. Expanding access to HIV testing and counselling is a priority, so that HIV-infected persons can have early access to treatment. HIV testing and counselling is also the gateway to prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. In the South-East Asia Region, only 28% of HIV-infected women receive treatment to prevent transmission of HIV infection to their child. The World Health Organization pledges its support to help countries meet the challenge of expanding and improving HIV-related services, so that universal access to HIV prevention, care, treatment and support becomes a reality.
