  • Description:
    Located at the Thailand Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) in Nonthaburi, Thailand, the CDC/PEPFAR Southeast Asia Regional Office (SARO) collaborates with and provides technical assistance to government and non-governmental partners in Lao PDR and Thailand, including civil society organizations (CSOs) and multilateral organizations, to discover, evaluate and implement new tools and programs to combat HIV, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and TB. It supports the UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals (90 percent of all people living with HIV know their HIV status; 90 percent of all people with a diagnosed HIV infection receive ART; and 90 percent of all people receiving ART are virally suppressed). The SARO aims to catalyze broad sustained HIV epidemic control in Lao PDR, Thailand and the region by working with partners to evaluate, pilot and scale-up effective approaches to reach, test, treat and retain priority populations in settings with the greatest burden of HIV.

    SARO activities are focused in 13 provinces in Thailand and three provinces in Lao PDR with high HIV prevalence. In Thailand, the SARO works through two cooperative agreements - one with the MOPH and a second with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) – that focus on HIV, STIs, and TB prevention, care and treatment. In Lao PDR, the SARO provides technical assistance on HIV prevention, care, and treatment through its cooperative agreements with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the World Health Organization (WHO). SARO initiatives focus on key populations that include men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women. SARO initiatives promote and demonstrate sustainable epidemic-control solutions that can be replicated, integrated, and/or scaled-up into existing health systems by national governments.

    SARO’s laboratory and strategic information sections provide the foundation for much of the program’s technical work. The strategic information section works with the Thai Government to develop health information systems that generate evidence to support and strengthen national public health policies, inform national guidelines, and help sub- national and national public health officers and health care providers to effectively plan and implement programs and make timely clinical-care decisions.
