Aditia Taslim, Advocacy Officer
Aditia has been involved in the HIV and drugs movement since 2005. His involvement started with an Indonesian-based community-led organisation, Rumah Cemara, focusing on different range of services for people who use drugs and people living with HIV in general. In the early days, his work focused on the initiation of harm reduction services for the very first time in Indonesia. He was also part of the initiation of a drug-user movement in Indonesia which eventually led to the development of a national network of people who use drugs. In 2018-2020, Aditia was one of the Asia Pacific NGO Delegates to the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB), bringing the voice of Asia Pacific region and his living experience as both a person who use drugs and who lives with HIV.
