The way the international community has been responding to the HIV/AIDS pandemic over thirty years can provide lessons on how to tackle critical disease outbreaks and other pandemics in the future.

That's according to Steven Klaus, Director of the UN Joint Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Regional Support Team for the Asia and Pacific Region.

Nan Zheng met Mr Klaus at the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction taking place in Sendai, Japan, and asked him about the health issues that are being discussed in the meeting.
