About Us


The COALITION (7S) is a broad-based alliance of regional Asia Pacific HIV/AIDS networks started in 2001, bringing together seven regional networks. Those Founding Members are

- AIDS Society of Asia Pacific (ASAP),
- Asia Pacific Council of AIDS Service Organizations (APCASO),
- Asia Pacific Network of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender, Asia Pacific Rainbow (APR)

- Asia Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (APN+),
- Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers (APNSW),
- Asian Harm Reduction Network (AHRN),
- Coordination of Action Research on AIDS and Mobility in Asia (CARAM-Asia).

Nine years into the 7S existence as the HIV epidemic continues to grow increasingly complex, the need is even greater for a collective body that can give voice to the HIV driven needs of the Asia Pacific’s most marginalized, vulnerable, affected communities and constituencies or what the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (TGF) is calling Key Affected Populations (KAP) at national, regional and global levels.

Under its restructured composition on-going from September 2009, the Coalition core membership comprises of

- Asia Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (APN+),
- Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers (APNSW),
- Asian Network of People who Use Drugs (ANPUD),
- Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) and
- Coordination of Action Research on AIDS and Mobility in Asia (CARAM Asia), which deals with the cross cutting mobile population related issues.

This current structure also indicates the Key Affected Population that the Coalition strives to represent. People living with HIV (PLHIV), People who Use Drugs (PUD), Sex Workers (SW), Transgender (TG), Men who have sex with Men (MSM) and Mobile Populations (MP).

Key Affected PopulationS (KAP)

Therefore Coalition 7S works to ensure the greater, more meaningful and effective participation of people living with HIV and other populations and communities most affected by HIV including:

- Sex Workers

- Gay Men and other Men who have Sex with Men (MSM)

- Transgender persons

- People who Use Drugs/Injecting Drug Users

- Women

- Youth

- Indigenous Peoples

- Migrant Workers and other Mobile Populations
