Kiribati Family Health and Support Study: A Study on Violence against Women and Children. Secretariat of the Pacific Community. (2010)

immage

The study sought to quantify the prevalence of violence against women and children and identify the most common causes of violence. This information is intended to form the basis for interventions that would in the long term minimise and, it is hoped, ultimately eliminate the drivers of violence against women and children. Prior to conducting the study it had been an accepted fact that violence against women and children occurs in Kiribati, just as it does in many other countries of the region. What was difficult to know was the magnitude of the problem. The Kiribati Family Health and Support Study has for the first time in the history of the country provided a picture of just how prevalent and serious this problem is. The finding in the study that 68% of women (2 in 3) between the ages of 15 and 49 years who have ever entered into relationships have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence, or both, by an intimate partner, is a very serious cause for concern.

Access to Essential Needs and Services for Children – Orphans and Poverty Status: A study on Cambodia, Thailand and Viet Nam. UNICEF (2009)

Access to Essential Needs and Services for Children – Orphans and Poverty Status: A study on Cambodia, Thailand and Viet Nam. UNICEF (2009) This study used household survey data from Cambodia, Thailand and Viet Nam to examine the situation of orphans relative to children in poverty regarding access to essential needs and services, focusing on basic material needs and education outcomes. This study made use of summary statistics and multivariate regression analysis to determine whether poverty accounts for the education gap between orphans and non-orphans, or whether other factors also contribute to the lower education outcomes of orphans. A similar analysis was done on children’s possession of basic materials – namely a blanket, a pair of shoes and two sets of clothes - which exemplify the capacity of families to protect and care for children.

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.
