The health sector has been playing a pivotal role in the national response to HIV of Member States of the South-East Asia Region of WHO. Member States have enormous opportunities, in the context of universal health coverage, to further scale up their responses to HIV with innovative service delivery models, including decentralization of HIV testing and treatment services, and integration of HIV services with maternal, newborn and child health services and tuberculosis control programmes. This report highlights the achievements, factors contributing to the successes and underlines the challenges to sustaining effective responses at the country level.
