It has been approximately a year since the International AIDS Conference in Thailand. The Bangkok meeting was both positive and troubling for me. On a positive note, the conference was well done and informative, and visitors could not have been shown greater hospitality. I had an unexpected opportunity to spend time with one of JANAC’s international editorial board members, Dr. Venna Jirapaet, who is a nursing professor at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. Dr. Jirapaet gave me a tour of her city and the largest University Hospital in Bangkok. This visit reaffirmed my fond feeling for Thailand and its people.
