I didn't know that! Everything you ever wanted to know about the 5% Initiative


Join APCOM’s Deputy Director, Ryan Figueiredo and Senior Program Officer Dr Heather-Marie Schmidt, together with Expertise France’s Adeline Lautissier and KHANA’s Choub Sok Chamreun for a Q&A on everything you ever wanted to know about the 5% Initiative on AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria implemented by Expertise France. The session will help organisations wanting to apply for 5% Initiative funding including the tips and tricks to a successful proposal and the experiences, challenges and successes of the projects funded in the Asia Pacific including the PULSE Initiative.


The PULSE initiative is a research, advocacy and capacity building project led by APCOM in partnership with community organisations, researchers and health authorities in Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. PULSE is generating research about the sex lives and health of young gay and bisexual men in the greater Mekong region of South East Asia to help improve the regional response to HIV transmission.
