Mr. Gaj Gurung, age 23 years, is the Nepal YouthLEAD focal point, representing young people from key HIV affected populations (young sex workers, young MSM, transgender, young people injecting drugs and young HIV positive) . He also represents the positive women network in Nepal (National Federation of Women Living with HIV and AIDS) and was key in the introduction of the youth Chapter in the Positive Women's Network. He is also an emerging leader, as a youth delegate to the Global Fund Board. Gaj Gurung was an active participant in the Asia Pacific Regional UA Consultation so has an understanding of the HLM process
