(Updated: 04 November 2010) 7th SINGAPORE AIDS CONFERENCE
The theme for the 7th Singapore AIDS Conference underlines the urgent need to widen our response in the 3rd decade of the AIDS epidemic to include more sectors of society. We aim to reach out to and engage a larger number and broader variety of groups and organisations to join in the battle to stop the spread of HIV in Singapore.
Our national response cannot be left to the efforts of the health sector and a small number of non-governmental organisations to plan and implement what is a very complicated programme.
The expertise and reach of youth groups, womens groups, religious organizations, private businesses, media organizations, educational institutions and so on are some of the 'communities' that must be actively engaged to play their part in coordinated efforts to educate, influence, provide resources and effect lasting changes in attitudes and behavior that will protect us against the impact of HIV/AIDS.
