Children and AIDS: Country Fact Sheets 2009. UNICEF, UNAIDS and WHO (2009)

Children and AIDS: Country Fact Sheets 2009. UNICEF, UNAIDS and WHO (2009) The Children and AIDS Fact Sheets in this publication reflect the situation of children affected by AIDS in low and middle-income countries and territories. They capture the minimum data needed to monitor progress associated with Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS in relation to the ‘Four Ps’: Prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV; Provide paediatric treatment; Prevent
infection among adolescents and young people; and Protect and support children affected by HIV and AIDS. The fact sheets contain statistics currently available in UNICEF global databases on key indicators for children and AIDS. These databases contain only statistically sound and nationally representative data from household surveys, including Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) and Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), and national programme statistics.

HIV and Infant Feeding: Revised Principles and Recommendations Rapid Advice. WHO (2009)

HIV and Infant Feeding: Revised Principles and Recommendations Rapid Advice. WHO (2009) WHO recommendations on infant feeding and HIV were last revised in 2006 (pub- lished in 2007 as an HIV and Infant Feeding Update – ISBN 978 92 4 159596 41). Signifi- cant programmatic experience and research evidence regarding HIV and infant feeding have accumulated since then. In particular, evidence has been reported that antiretro- viral (ARV) interventions to either the HIV-infected mother or HIV-exposed infant can significantly reduce the risk of postnatal transmission of HIV through breastfeeding. This has major implications for how women living with HIV might choose to feed their infants, and how health workers should counsel mothers when making these choices. The potential of ARVs to reduce HIV transmission throughout the period of breastfeed- ing also highlights the need for guidance on how child health services should commu- nicate information about ARVs to prevent transmission through breastfeeding, and the implications for feeding of HIV exposed infants through the first two years of life.

Scale Up of HIV-Related Prevention, Diagnosis, Care and Treatment for Infants and Children: A Programming Framework. WHO and UNICEF (2008)

Scale Up of HIV-Related Prevention, Diagnosis, Care and Treatment for Infants and Children: A Programming Framework. WHO and UNICEF (2008)
To help address this significant public health issue for children, UNICEF and WHO initiated a process to develop a programming framework designed to assist national health managers and implementing partners in resource constrained settings with a high HIV burden to scale up HIV prevention, diagnosis, care and treatment for children who are exposed to or who have HIV within the context of broader child survival and HIV programmes. This
framework was developed following an international consultation held in New York in 2006 that included more than 100 participants from the global pediatric HIV and child survival community.
