Uniting the World against AIDS. UNAIDS (2008)

Uniting the World against AIDS. UNAIDS (2008) For over 27 years, our world has been living with HIV. And in just this short time, AIDS has become one of the make-or-break global crises of our age, undermining not just the health prospects of entire societies but also their ability to reduce poverty, promote development, and maintain national security. And in too many regions AIDS continues to expand – every single day 7 400 people are newly infected with HIV, and nearly 5 500 people die from AIDS- related illnesses.

Working in Partnership with Networks of People Living with HIV in Asia and the Pacific: A Guidance Note for Development Practitioners. UNDP and Asia-Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (2008) The purpose of this Guidance Note is to facilitate equal, effective and synergistic partnerships between development organisations/practitioners and PLHIV networks. Ethically, it is grounded in the same human-rights principles as those of GIPA: empowerment, non-discrimination, ownership and active, meaningful participation. Functionally, its aim is to improve future interventions by groups working with PLHIV networks in other contexts. It is a practical guide, based on a wealth of experience and learning drawn from PLHIV networks and their supporting partners in several countries across the Asia-Pacific region.The purpose of this Guidance Note is to facilitate equal, effective and synergistic partnerships between development organisations/practitioners and PLHIV networks.

2007 Estimates of Adults Living with HIV in the Philippines. Department of Health (2007)

Estimates of Adults Living with HIV in the Philippines 2007

Since the start of HIV serologic surveillance in 1993, the country’s epidemic is described
as low and slow due to the fact that the national aggregate’s prevalence has never
gone beyond one percent. However, behavioral surveillance is showing that risk behaviors are high among the most-at-risk population. The 2007 IHBSS showed that 52% of IDUs shared needles and syringes the last time they injected. The same survey showed that condom use in different populations varied : 71% for establishment-based female sex workers, 59% for freelance female sex workers, 33% for male clients of female sex workers, 24% for injecting drug users and 42% during anal sex among MSM. The highlight of the survey was the finding that interaction among and between the risk populations and their low risk sex partners exists.

HIV-Related Stigma and Discrimination in Asia: A Review of Human Development Consequences. UNDP (2007)

HIV-Related Stigma and Discrimination in Asia: A Review of Human Development Consequences. UNDP (2007) Although there have been many notable successes in both the prevention and treatment of HIV, stigma and discrimination have been intractable problems associated with the AIDS epidemic throughout the world. Stigma certainly has well-established individual consequences: it has been shown to delay HIV testing, restrict utilization of preventative programs, and hinder the adoption of preventative behaviours like condom use and HIV status disclosure (Brooks et al., 2005). Stigma may also have consequences for individual economic well-being as well as broader socioeconomic development (beyond the impact of HIV disease alone). In Asia, where the epidemic arrived relatively late, HIV is spreading with rapid speed. In 2005, the number of AIDS cases in Asia topped 8 million; this is compared to approximately 3 million people just 10 years prior (UNAIDS, 2006). Determinants and consequences of stigma and discrimination on socioeconomic development in Asia have yet to be empirically assessed.

Preventing Carer Burnout: Inter-Mission Care and Rehabilitation Society. Geneva Global, Tearfund and UNAIDS (2007)

Preventing Carer Burnout: Inter-Mission Care and Rehabilitation Society. Geneva Global, Tearfund and UNAIDS (2007) Burnout is not an event but a process in which every day stresses and anxieties that are not addressed gradually undermine the carer’s mental and physical health, so that even- tually care giving and personal relationships suffer.As a medical condition burnout has no clear definition, but as a psychological condition it has been well defined1 and is increasingly recognized by people in the caring professions. Burnout has long been identified as a crucial issue in HIV care and support; yet there is relatively little known about what measures can be taken to prevent or mitigate it.
