India: HIV and AIDS-related Discrimination, Stigmatization and Denial. UNAIDS (2001)

India: HIV and AIDS-related Discrimination, Stigmatization and Denial. UNAIDS (2001) In India, as elsewhere, AIDS is perceived as a disease of “others” – of peo- ple living on the margins of society, whose lifestyles are considered “perverted” and “sin- ful.” Discrimination, stigmatization, and denial (DSD) are the expected outcomes of such values, affecting life in families, communities, workplaces, schools, and health care set- tings. Because of HIV/AIDS-related DSD, appropriate policies and models of good prac- tice remain undeveloped. People living with HIV and AIDS (PLHA) continue to be bur- dened by poor care and inadequate services, while those with the power to help do lit- tle to make the situation better.

Parents Providing Care to Adult Sons and Daughters with HIV/AIDS in Thailand. UNAIDS (2001)

Parents Providing Care to Adult Sons and Daughters with HIV/AIDS in Thailand. UNAIDS (2001) As the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic contin- ues, there is increasing recognition that more attention and resources need to be focused on those indirectly affected by the epidemic. Uninfected family members and sig- nificant others can be affected emotionally, economically, socially and physically by the illness and death of a person with AIDS. This is particularly true for persons who serve as caregivers. Much attention has been given to AIDS orphans— the children left behind by parents who have died from AIDS.

Comparative Analysis: Research Studies from India and Uganda- HIV and AIDS-Related Discrimination, Stigmatization and Denial. UNAIDS (2000)

Comparative Analysis: Research Studies from India and Uganda- HIV and AIDS-Related Discrimination, Stigmatization and Denial. UNAIDS (2000) It goes without saying that HIV/AIDS is as much about social phenomena as it is about biological and medical concerns. Across the world, the global pandemic of HIV/AIDS has shown itself capable of triggering responses of compassion, solidarity and support, bringing out the best in people, their families and communities. But the disease is also associated with stigma, ostracism, repression and discrimination, as individuals affected (or believed to be affected) by HIV have been rejected by their families, their loved ones and their communities. This rejection holds as true in the rich countries of the north as it does in the poorer and developing countries of the south.

Home Care Programme for People with HIV/AIDS in Cambodia. Wilkinson, D (2000)

Home Care Programme for People with HIV/AIDS in Cambodia. Wilkinson, D (2000) Cambodia is reported to have one of the fastest growing HIV prevalence rates in the world. Results from the latest Surveillance Survey indicate that approximately 170,000 Cambodians are now infected with HIV, giving an adult HIV prevalence rate of around 3.5%. The impact of the rapid spread of the epidemic in Cambodia is drastic. During the year 2000, an estimated 12,000 people with AIDS will seek care and support, thus increasing the pressure on a health care system that currently provides a total of 8,500 beds for all medical conditions.

From Principle to Practice: Greater Involvement of People Living with or Affected by HIV/AIDS (GIPA). UNAIDS (1999)

From Principle to Practice: Greater Involvement of People Living with or Affected by HIV/AIDS (GIPA). UNAIDS (1999) At the 1994 Paris AIDS Summit, 42 national governments declared that the principle of greater involvement of people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS (GIPA) is critical to ethical and effective na- tional responses to the epidemic (see the complete text of the dec- laration at the end of this document, particularly Section IV.1). This is, therefore, the official position of these governments, which have committed themselves to supporting full involvement of persons liv- ing with or affected by HIV/AIDS (PWHAs)2 in the “common re- sponse to the pandemic at all – national, regional and global – levels”.

HIV-Related Opportunistic Diseases - UNAIDS Technical Update. UNAIDS (1998)

HIV-Related Opportunistic Diseases - UNAIDS Technical Update. UNAIDS (1998) Opportunistic diseases in a person with HIV are the products of two things: the person’s lack of immune defences caused by the virus, and the presence of microbes and other pathogens in our everyday environment.
