Thailand has a vibrant and varied grass-root NGO movement, with a strong PHA network and over 200 organisations working on HIV/AIDS issues within communities. A range of outreach activities are being prepared across the country to draw communities into the Conference and to bring the Conference to communities. There will be a convergence of community workers and PHAs from across the country, the region and the world at special community events during the Conference. It is anticipated that there will be opportunities for delegates to interact and exchange ideas, experiences and perspectives, and to establish new networks for learning. Further information on these activities and opportunities will be posted on the Conference website as they are confirmed.
