The hope is that the various data and information collected through CLM can be used to ensure that programs run according to the needs of PLHIV and key populations. Strategi AIDS global 2021-2026 memprioritaskan pemberian dukungan terhadap respons yang dimpimpin oleh komunitas, termasuk CLM. The hope is that the various data and information collected through CLM can be used to ensure that programs run according to the needs of PLHIV and key populations.

Currently, CLM is seen as an important tool for the HIV response in the Asia-Pacific Region. There have been various CLM initiatives both nationally and regionally, led and implemented by Community Based Organizations (CBO) and national networks of key populations. CLM places communities at the forefront of the HIV response, empowering them and giving them a critical role in the process of planning and monitoring HIV services. However, despite various good initiatives, there are also several challenges, which include but are not limited to, encouraging consistent acceptance of CLM principles by relevant stakeholders, scaling up CLM pilot projects, and managing conflicts of interest. . Also included in the challenges is the mismatch between the aspirations of the implementing party and the available resources.

At the regional level, the Regional Network of PLHIV and Key Populations has formed a regional CLM consortium, namely the Seven Alliance, which functions as a coordinating body to encourage effective community involvement in monitoring HIV services. The Seven Alliance Consortium consists of APCOM, Asia Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (APN+), Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers (APNSW), Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN), International Community of Women Living with HIV in Asia Pacific (ICW-AP), Network of Asian People who Use Drugs (NAPUD), and Youth LEAD.

Responding to the momentum and needs in the region, Seven Alliance, in collaboration with the UNAIDS Regional Support Team for the Asia and Pacific Region (UNAIDS RST AP) organized the 2nd CLM Regional Workshop. The workshop was funded by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through a cooperative agreement with UNAIDS, with additional support from the Global Fund through the multi-country grant SKPA-2 and from other stakeholders.

The overall objective of this workshop activity is to provide space for CLM implementers, CSOs, regional networks, government agencies, donors, UN agencies, as well as technical assistance providers to share knowledge, experience, and tools, which is expected to help harmonize, strengthening, scaling up projects, and maintaining CLM sustainability in the region.
