This case study aims to share a successful implementation of the minimum package approach to HIV prevention for most-at-risk populations. The minimum package approach, which aims to implement a package of effective HIV prevention interventions in a coordinated fashion, is being implemented in a number of sites across the Mekong region. The program in Burma is one of the more established of these, and it presents a wealth of data that can be used to better understand the implementation of the Burma program and demonstrate its effectiveness. The experience from Burma may help inform other programs in the region.
