GHC Legislative and Outreach Coordinator Duncan Rollason will be blogging all week from the (ICAAP) in Bali, Indonesia. Here is his fifth report:
BALI, Indonesia — Television news corespondent and UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador James Chau chaired the final plenary of the 9th ICAAP in unique fashion. As an interviewer he added an energetic and interactive spirit that contributed to a very engaging and meaningful dialogue between the audience and the panel. The session addressed the needs of female sex workers, injection drug users, men who have sex with men and more. Mr. Chau concluded the session by asking that the dialogue around these issues continue past the conclusion of the ICCAP, but more importantly that action is taken.
The 9th ICAAP came to an official close in spectacular fashion with musical and dance performances! Check out the Gallery for pictures from the 9th ICAAP
