  5. Deadly Denial: Barriers to HIV/AIDS treatment for people who use drugs in Thailand

    This 57-page report found that routine police harassment and arrest - as well as the lasting effects of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's 2003 drug war - keeps drug users from receiving lifesaving HIV information and services that Thailand has pledged to provide. The report also documents how drug users face discrimination from health care workers, who continue to deny antiretroviral treatment to people who need it based on their status as drug users.

  6. AIDS: what young people think about it; educational practices and policies

    This publication is the result of the project funded by the UNAIDS Young People Commitment and CO-Responsibility in Preventing the Spread of HIV and AIDS. The primary objective is to include the perceptions of youth in the formulation and implementation of HIV and AIDS policies, thereby enhancing the involvement of youth in the containment of the epidemic. It is therefore intended to raise awareness by promoting strategies to respond to the HIV and AIDS epidemic, taking into account the participation of youth in the policy-making process and the implementation of preventive efforts.
