In Brief

This In Brief reports on a multiday workshop on HIV that was held in Manokwari, West Papua province, Indonesia, from 27–29 November 2014. The workshop, called Developing an HIV Prevention and Control Strategy for Papuans in Tanah Papua,1 represented the culmination of over a year of preparatory work, and something new in Tanah Papua's HIV response: the mobilisation of a broad base of community and provincial- level actors committed to responding to epidemic levels of HIV among indigenous Papuans.2 Based on comparative data obtained from the World Health Organization, Tanah Papua faces the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the world, and one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in the world outside of Africa.
