About your speaker

Derek Chan is a Staff Specialist at Albion Centre and a Conjoint Associate Professor in the School of Public Health UNSW. Since completing his PhD in 2011, he has published widely in the areas of HIV and STI medicine and participated in national and international trials of antiretroviral therapies. He is the Project Lead for an international collaboration between the Vanuatu Ministry of Health and the WHO Collaborating Centre in HIV and STI Care, Treatment and Support (Albion Centre).

Abstract

90% of HIV infections in the Asia-Pacific region occur in 12 countries. The state of the epidemic in small Pacific Island nations, in contrast, is not well characterised but there is no doubt that prevailing socioeconomic, cultural, resource limitations and behavioural factors render populations at risk for HIV. Vanuatu is a small nation and its population is susceptible to infectious diseases including tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV.

This presentation provides an overview of an international project being conducted by the Vanuatu Ministry of Health and WHO Collaborating Centre in HIV and STI Care, Treatment and Support (Albion Centre) to upscale the HIV response in Vanuatu.
