APBCA supports the establishment and coordination of country-level business coalitions on HIV, AIDS and tuberculosis (BCAs) throughout the Asia Pacific region. The APBCA network of BCAs collaborate to assist companies manage the impact of the HIV epidemic on their business and the communities in which they operate. APBCA’s focus is on establishing new BCAs and assisting new and existing BCAs grow, become sustainable and add new activities such as TB and malaria prevention, HIV counselling and testing and condom distribution.
Since the launch of APBCA in 2006, the network has grown to nine country based business coalitions in
- Thailand: www.tbca.or.th
- Myanmar: www.mbconaid.org
- Papua New Guinea: www.baha.com.pg
- Indonesia: www.ibca.or.id
- Cambodia: www.cbca-cambodia.org
- Singapore: www.bcas.org.sg
- Fiji: Under development
- Sri Lanka: Under development
- Nepal: Under development
- Philippines: Under development
- Malaysia: www.mac.org.my
These seven coalitions joined existing business coalitions on AIDS in Thailand, Myanmar and Singapore. In most of these countries, the BCAs are leading the private sector response to prevent the spread of HIV and tuberculosis.
We are proud that APBCA has been recognised by organisations such as the World Economic Forum and UNAIDS as the worlds best example of a regional HIV business coalition.
