Development partners have recognized the obligation to mitigate HIV risks associated with infrastructure development as an opportunity to contribute to the fight against HIV/AIDS and poverty in the Greater Mekong Subregion. Development partners agreed to strengthen inter-agency cooperation and harmonization to scale up and enhance the effectiveness of HIV and AIDS prevention in future infrastructure interventions. To achieve this, they jointly developed a set of practice guidelines that can provide some standardization of effective program elements, focusing on three different but interacting populations---sex and entertainment workers, local communities impacted by infrastructure development, and migrant workers.

About the Author
About the Asian Development Bank ADB’s vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Despite the region’s many successes, it remains home to approximately two-thirds of the world’s poor: 1.6 billion people who live on less than $2 a day, with 733 million struggling on less than $1.25 a day. ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration. Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
