In this lecture series, we will gain an understanding of the situation of HIV/AIDs occurring in Asia while referencing approaches to HIV/AIDS in Japanese society from the angle of medical treatment and assistance. Additionally, emphasis will be placed on "Japan in Asia" and "Asia in Japan," tracing the patterns of diversification and the increase in transnational migration of peoples.
