Thank you for joining us at the launch of SERVIR-Mekong, the third hub in the Global SERVIR network.

We at USAID are proud to partner with NASA on SERVIR because we – and the development community more broadly – are just scratching the surface of how geospatial information can be applied to address a wide range of development challenges.

As SERVIR has already been doing in Eastern and Southern Africa and across the Hindu-kush Himalaya region, SERVIR-Mekong will help governments and other key decision-makers in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam take advantage of NASA’s publicly available satellite imagery and geospatial analyses.

These tools help make more informed decisions on critical issues that impact people across the region, such as water management, land use planning, disaster risk reduction, infrastructure development and natural resources management. And informed decisions about issues such as these can save lives, preserve livelihoods and bring about greater resiliency in communities. That’s what drives all of us to embrace this partnership.

Advances in science have made it possible to end the AIDS epidemic by increasing access to HIV testing and antiretroviral medications among individuals facing the greatest risk of infection. In many countries across Asia and the Pacific, the greatest proportion of new HIV infections each year occur among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women, yet the number of people in these populations accessing HIV services remains very low. With funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the U.S. Agency for International Development Regional Development Mission for Asia (USAID/RDMA) works to control the epidemic by using better methods to reach, test, treat and retain in clinical services for MSM and transgender women.
