Continuum of Care for People Living with HIV/AIDS in Cambodia. National Center for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STDs Cambodia (2003) Cambodia faces the highest burden of HIV infection in the region.

New AIDS cases in 2002 are estimated to be about 19 000 and new deaths related to HIV/AIDS about 18 000.

HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. FHI-Impact and USAID (2003)

HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. FHI, Impact and USAID (2003) Only about five percent of the 30 million people in poor countries who need treatment for HIV infec- tion are receiving it. As the need for treatment grows, so does the demand. The June 2001 Declaration of Commitment by the United Nations General Assembly states that “Prevention, care, support and treatment for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS are mutually reinforcing elements of an effective response and must be integrated in a comprehensive approach to combat the epidemic.” Encouraged by global support for expanding access to treatment and by a decrease in the price of antiretroviral drugs, programs are increasingly seeking ways to add a treatment component to their prevention, care, and support services.

Snapshots of GIPA: the Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS in South Asia. UNDP (2003) HIV infection has taken root in South Asia, and poses a threat to development and poverty alleviation efforts in the region.

A Conceptual Framework and Basis for Action: HIV/AIDS Stigma and Discrimination. UNAIDS (2002)

A Conceptual Framework and Basis for Action: HIV/AIDS Stigma and Discrimination. UNAIDS (2002) Stigma and discrimination associated with HIV and AIDS are the greatest barriers to prevent- ing further infections, providing adequate care, support and treatment and alleviating impact. HIV/AIDS-related stigma and discrimination are universal, occurring in every country and region of the world. They are triggered by many forces, including lack of understanding of the disease, myths about how HIV is transmitted, prejudice, lack of treatment, irresponsible media reporting on the epidemic, the fact that AIDS is incurable, social fears about sexuality, fears relating to illness and death, and fears about illicit drugs and injecting drug use.

Addressing HIV/AIDS Stigma and Discrimination in a Workplace Program: Emerging Findings. Horizon (2002)

Addressing HIV/AIDS Stigma and Discrimination in a Workplace Program: Emerging Findings. Horizon (2002) Stigma and discrimination present major challenges to the successful implementa- tion of workplace HIV/AIDS programs. Stigma is defined as a social process that marginalizes and labels those who are different, and discrimination is defined as the negative practices that stem from stigma, or “enacted” stigma. In the workplace, employees may suffer from HIV-related stigma from their co-workers and supervisors, such as social isolation and ridicule, or experience discriminatory practices, such as being fired from their jobs. The fear of negative reactions from colleagues and employers may discourage workers from undergoing voluntary counseling and testing (VCT) and seeking available prevention and care services.

Best Reproductive Health Practices. WHO (2002)

Best Reproductive Health Practices. WHO (2002) Most of the antenatal care models currently in use around the world have not been subjected to rigorous scientific evaluation to determine their effectiveness. Despite a widespread desire to improve maternal care services, this lack of “hard” evidence has impeded the identification of effective interventions and thus the optimal allocation of resources. In developing countries, routinely recommended antenatal care programmes are often poorly implemented and clinical visits can be irregular, with long waiting times and poor feedback to the women.

Community Home-Based Care in Resource-Limited Settings: A Framework for Action. WHO (2002)

Community Home-Based Care in Resource-Limited Settings: A Framework for Action. WHO (2002) This document provides a systematic framework for establishing and maintaining community home-based care (CHBC) in resource-limited settings for people with HIV/AIDS and those with other chronic or disabling conditions. Most CHBC services so far have been established through unsystematic, needs-based efforts. As the HIV/AIDS epidemic continues to grow, many organizations and communities are now considering expanding in a more programmatic approach, and countries are looking for scaled-up responses and national strategies for CHBC.
