Overview

Cebu City is experiencing an explosive HIV epidemic, primarily amongst people who inject drugs, but also in other populations. The public health crisis requires an urgent and well-coordinated response.

It is based on scientific evidence gleaned from successful strategies applied in other communities. The plan is outlined in this briefing paper.
