Enhancing the Benefits of Antiretroviral Therapy in Vietnam: Towards Ending AIDS. Kato M, Long NH, Duong BD, et al. (2014)

immage

Vietnam has a concentrated HIV epidemic, with the highest HIV prevalence being observed among people who inject drugs (PWID). Based on its experience scaling-up robust HIV interventions, Vietnam aims to further strengthen its response by harnessing the preventive benefits of antiretroviral therapy (ART). Mathematical modelling suggests that prioritizing key populations for earlier access to ART, combined with other prevention interventions, may have significant impact on the epidemic, cost-effectively reducing new HIV infections and deaths. Pilot studies are being conducted to assess feasibility and acceptability of expansion of HIV testing and counselling (HTC) and early ART among key populations and to demonstrate innovative service delivery models to address challenges in uptake of services across the care cascade. Earlier access of key populations to combination prevention interventions, combined with sustained political commitment and supportive environment for key populations, are essential for maximum impact of ART on the HIV epidemic in Vietnam.

HEADLIGHT : Understanding WHO’s Consolidated Guidelines on HIV Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Care for Key Populations. APCOM. (2014)

immage

The Guidelines aim to support countries provide more effective and comprehensive HIV services for the key populations, including men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people and include discussion of specific issues relating to adolescent key populations. Although, there is still a lack of evidence to support recommendation of PrEP to transgender women. In this brief we highlight the recommendations made in the Guidelines that are most relevant to MSM and transgender people.

Impacts of Drug Use on Users and Their Families in Afghanistan. UNODC. (2014)

immage

Afghanistan is the world’s largest producer and cultivator of opium poppies; it produces almost three quarters of the world’s illicit opium. While a significant amount of the opium produced in Afghanistan is trafficked out of the country, in 2009 it was estimated that almost 10 per cent of Afghans aged between 15 and 64 were drug users.

The Quality of Outreach Workers and the Services They Provide for the NSEP Program in Malaysia. Baba I and Azman A. (2014)

immage

Outreach workers have been the focal point for the success and failure of the Needle Syringe Exchange Program (NSEP program) in Malaysia. They are the back bone and considered the front line workers for the NSEP program in Malaysia. They are instrumental in providing all of the services that have been stipulated under the NSEP program and the rightly so individuals to deal with people who inject drugs (PWID) in the community. Outreach workers often face many daily challenges when they work with PWID.
