Thailand to Host Leaders Summit on AIDS: Health Ministry

June 3, 2003

Health Minister Sudarat Keyuraphan announced that Thailand will host a world leaders' summit on AIDS in a bid to boost international cooperation in dealing with the disease. The proposal was raised at a World Health Organization meeting in Geneva in May and was agreed to by UNAIDS Director Peter Piot, Keyuraphan said in a statement. The summit will form part of the 15th International AIDS Conference in October next year. Thailand had earlier been chosen to host that conference to highlight the extent of the crisis in Asia Pacific, where infection rates are rapidly rising. "It is the first time that there will be a meeting at the level of presidents and prime ministers as part of the conference," Sudarat said. "It will help develop joint cooperation in solving problems related to AIDS." About 20,000 academicians and other experts are expected to attend the main conference.
