Infant Feeding Practices and Attitudes among Women with HIV Infection in Northern Thailand. Talawatg S, Dore GJ, Coeur SL, et al (2002)

Infant Feeding Practices and Attitudes among Women with HIV Infection in Northern Thailand. Talawatg S, Dore GJ, Coeur SL, et al (2002) Breastfeeding transmission is accountable for about one­third of mother­to­child trans­ mission of HIV in developing countries (Mofenson 1997; Nicoll et al., 2000). In developed countries, women with HIV infection are recommended not to breastfeed their children; however, in developing countries, the risk of postnatal HIV transmission has to be balanced against the risk of morbidity and mortality associated with formula feeding (Nicoll et al., 2000; WHO, 2000).

In the central provinces, the main mode of transmission of HIV/AIDS is the transfusion of tainted blood and plasma products; in the coastal areas it is commercial sex; while in the west and on the border with the Golden Triangle, where the province of Yunnan is found, the infection is predominantly transmitted by intravenous drug use.

Care for Orphans, Children Affected by HIV/AIDS and Other Vulnerable Children: A Strategic Framework. FHI and USAID (2001)

Care for Orphans, Children Affected by HIV/AIDS and Other Vulnerable Children: A Strategic Framework. FHI and USAID (2001) The global HIV/AIDS pandemic has been changing human lives and the shape of societies for more than 15 years in the heavily infected countries of Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. It has reversed decades of development gains in health, and slowed economic and social improvement across the board and in ways that will change relationships at family, community and national levels forever.

Study on Children at Risk of HIV/AIDS & Drugs in Five Detention Facilities in Thailand. Save the Children UK (2001)

Study on Children at Risk of HIV/AIDS & Drugs in Five Detention Facilities in Thailand. Save the Children UK (2001) There are about 32, 000 children in detention facilities in Thailand. There is very little known about them particularly in relation to their risks from HIV/AIDS and drugs and substance use. They are anecdotally reported to be highly vulnerable to HIV/AIDS and alcohol and drug use but have rather limited access to HIV and drug use prevention, care and support systems and structures.

Voluntary Counseling and Testing: A Reference Guide. UNICEF and FHI (2001) The psychosocial needs of young people and children in relation to HIV/AIDS have been sadly neglected to date.

Principles and Strategies to Reduce the Impacts of AIDS on Children and Families. Williamson, J (2000)

Principles and Strategies to Reduce the Impacts of AIDS on Children and Families. Williamson, J (2000) Developing effective interventions to mitigate the devastation HIV/AIDS causes among children and families requires giving careful attention to both ends of the epidemic’s spectrum of impacts. It is vitally important to understand the problems on a human scale, what happens to parents, children, and orphans’ guardians. But this perspective, by itself, is not adequate to guide a strategic response to these problems. It is also essential to keep in mind the magnitude and scale of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and its collective impacts.

Emerging Issues and Challenges for Women, Young People & Infants. UNAIDS (1999)

Emerging Issues and Challenges for Women, Young People & Infants. UNAIDS (1999) In badly affected countries, the socioeconomic effect of this most destructive disease is measured in declining per capita incomes, shrinking profits in labour-intensive businesses, loss of productivity from cultivated land, and deteriorating public services such as health, welfare and education, as key staff fall ill and die. AIDS undermines the future, too, as families and communities struggle with the burdens of sick people and orphaned children, building up debts and frequently having to remove children from school because of lack of funds or because the labour of even the littlest is needed to help the family survive.
