APCASO has approved a new Strategic Plan for 2015-2020, which shifts the network’s mandate towards strengthening communities and emphasising human rights to hasten the end of the HIV, TB, and malaria epidemics, and other health challenges
APCASO is an Asia-Pacific regional civil society network of community-based and non-governmental organisations on HIV, health, and social justice, with focus on advocacy and community capacity development. It has presence in Australia, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, India, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.
