13.06.2012

A Short Course for Policy Makers, Programmers and Providers in the Asia Pacific 27th – 31st August 2012
Bangkok, Thailand

UNFPA APRO, UNESCO Bangkok, and UNICEF ROSA and EAPRO are hosting a forthcoming course on Understanding the Focus on Young People from Key Affected Populations in Concentrated and Low Prevalence HIV Epidemics. 

This short course offers an excellent opportunity for programme staff and policy-makers in the Asia-Pacific region to strengthen technical support for preventing HIV among young people. 

The course uses a theory to practice approach drawing on a mixture of interactive methods to: 

• Provide an overview of global, regional and country-level data on young key affected populations (YKAP) and consider how to gather and use better strategic information 

• Review and critique different frameworks for programming for YKAP, and introduce and apply different tools and practical guidelines 

• Review the evidence-base on programming for YKAP, and promising programmes in the region and beyond; and

• Develop strategies for the effective and appropriate engagement of YKAP and their communities in all phases of the programming and policy process.
