The eighth annual Taipei International Conference on AIDS will be held today and tomorrow. The conference, to be hosted by the Center for Disease Control under the Department of Health, will highlight harm reduction schemes in Taiwan, the US, Hong Kong, Canada and Australia as well as global HIV infection conditions among drug addicts, according to the center. The conference will also focus its agenda on prevention, treatment and health care for people infected with HIV, said the center's deputy-director Lin Ting (林頂). A roundtable meeting will be held between foreign harm reduction experts, and the country's judicial and police departments so as to "connect Taiwan's harm reduction experiences to the world," Lin said.
