About TREAT Asia

Established in 2001, TREAT Asia (Therapeutics Research, Education, and AIDS Training in Asia) is a collaborative network of clinics, hospitals, research institutions, and civil society that is working to ensure the safe and effective delivery of HIV treatments to adults and children across the Asia-Pacific through:

Research and Treatment
Education and AIDS Training
Community Advocacy and Policy


TREAT Asia’s unique capacity to bring together researchers, doctors, activists, advocates, and policymakers plays an important role in the region’s response to HIV, and it has become a model for regional collaboration on HIV/AIDS. Its members study optimal approaches to treating HIV, common co-infections, and comorbid conditions among adults and children, particularly in resource-limited settings. It regularly hosts workshops and develops and distributes educational materials to provide clinicians and community advocates with the knowledge they need to better address the epidemic within their own country contexts. TREAT Asia also plays a key advocacy role in the region, using data gathered through the network and its research, to make the case for evidence-based HIV-related policy and programming.



Despite substantial progress and successes in combatting HIV in Asia, stigma is prevalent, response gaps remain, and in recent years troubling trends have emerged in certain areas and among specific populations.
