Wealth from extractive industries has the potential to more significantly boost the wellbeing of Papua New Guinea’s citizens. Yet the country’s development could be undermined if resources are not used in economically, socially and environmentally sustainable ways, says a new report by the UN Development Programme. The report points out that almost 40 per cent of the country’s population continue to live on less than one dollar per day with inequalities on the rise, despite strong economic growth as a result of extractive industries such as oil, gas and mining. Over 25 per cent of children are not attending schools, and two out of three women and girls in the country experience gender-based violence. The 2013 Global Human Development Index ranked Papua New Guinea 156 out of 187 countries.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people make up an alarming proportion of new HIV infections in Asia. Estimates by the Commission on AIDS in Asia predict that these two population groups could make up half of all new HIV infections in Asia by 2020. In Pakistan, these key populations have traditionally been neglected in national HIV responses. However, this is beginning to change as a result of efforts by the Naz Male Health Alliance, under the Multi-Country South Asia (MSA) Global Fund HIV Programme – a regional HIV programme funded by the Global Fund and for which UNDP is the Principal Recipient.
