                           The XV International AIDS Conference •11–16 July, 2004 • Bangkok, Thailand

                           Invitation to Exhibition
                           On behalf of the Thailand Ministry of Public Health, I wish to extend to all of you a very special and
                           warm welcome to Thailand in 2004. Our people and the Royal Thai Government are honoured to host
                           the XV International AIDS Conference. We welcome the opportunity for the advancement of multidisciplinary
                           and cross-cultural communication and collaboration among developed and developing countries. We especially
                           look forward to fostering a global approach to the pandemic and sharing the results of HIV/AIDS research and
                           intervention programs from an international perspective.

                           It is appropriate that the venue for the Conference is in an Asian country, as the epicentre of the global AIDS
                           epidemic is moving from Africa to this region. Asia – being home to more than one third of the world’s
                           population and harbouring more than one fourth of the world’s new infections – has the potential for
                           a devastating spread of the epidemic. On the other hand, Asia offers lessons learned on local responses for a
                                        large range of effective interventions in prevention and control of HIV. While community-based
                                        responses are acknowledges as being the most effective, in Thailand we also recognize that political
                                        commitment at the highest level of government makes the critical difference in supporting
                                        community, provincial, national and international action on HIV/AIDS. Enlightened political
                                        leaders help create an environment in which the economic, social and cultural rights of all people,
                                        including those with HIV, are protected and respected.
                                            With the great effort and cooperation between IAS and the local organisers, we are confident
                                        that the XV International AIDS Conference will be a great success and one of the best to be
                                            I look forward to your participation in this important global meeting.

                           Dr. Vallop Thaineua
                           Permanent Secretary
                           Thai Ministry of Public Health

                           In 2000, the International AIDS Society brought the International AIDS Conference to Durban, South Africa.
                           “Break the Silence” was the theme. And, indeed, the silence was broken. Durban marked a turning point in the
                           global fight against AIDS. Political leaders in the South could no longer remain silent or complacent, and their
                           counterparts in the North could no longer deny efficient support. Nobody can stop the process that started there,
                           a process which will speed more HIV prevention, treatment and care to regions most affected by the HIV pandemic.

                                      After Durban and before Barcelona, the International AIDS Society decided again to move the
                                      conference to the South: to Asia, yet another epicentre of the epidemic. Unfortunately, if appropriate
                                      action is not taken, the spread of HIV during the next decade is projected to be even more rampant
                                      in Asia and the Pacific than what has happened in Sub-Saharan Africa.
                                          I am therefore pleased to invite you to the XV International AIDS Conference in 2004 which will
                                      take place in Bangkok. This first ever International AIDS Conference held in Southeast Asia will be
                                      organised by the IAS in collaboration with the Thai Ministry of Public Health, UNAIDS, and local
                                      and international community organisations.
                                          I look forward to working with all of you to make the Bangkok Conference another milestone
                                      in the fight against HIV/AIDS
