A Preview of Law and Policy in South and South East Asia: Drugs, Treatment and Harm Reduction. The Lawyers Collective HIV/AIDS Unit (2010) Unsafe injecting practices among people using drugs is a primary driver of HIV in many parts of Asia. As the fastest and most efficient route of transmission, injecting drug use with unsterile equipment is considered ‘explosive’ to the rapid spread of HIV. This impending threat is significant for a number of countries in South and South East Asia that report highest incidence of HIV infections among injecting drug users(IDUs).

A Strategy to Halt and Reverse the HIV Epidemic among People Who Inject Drugs in Asia and the Pacific 2010-2015. WHO, USAID, UNODC, et al (2010) A strategy to halt and reverse the HIV epidemic among people who inject drugs in Asia and the Pacific, 2010–2015 A regional strategy (2010–2015) for removing the barriers to “universal access” and “harm reduction” to halt the epidemics of HIV and viral hepatitis among and from people who inject drugs (PWID) in Asia and the Pacific was developed by the United Nations Regional Task Force on Injecting Drug Use and HIV/AIDS for Asia and the Pacific. It was developed in pursuit of the sixth Millennium Development Goal (MDG)2 which is to “Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases”. Specifically, the targets are to “Halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS among 15–24-year-olds (6.1), increase condom use at high risk sex (6.2) and ensure that those who need it will have universal access to HIV/AIDS treatment including antiretroviral drugs by 2010 (6.5)”.

Achieving the Millennium Development Goals in an Era of Global Uncertainty: Asia-Pacific Regional Report 2009/10. ESCAP, ADB and UNDP (2010)

Asia-Pacific Regional Report 2009/10

This is the latest in a series of reports for Asia and the Pacific on the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Coming in the midst of the global financial and economic turmoil, it should offer a unique opportunity to redress the information balance – to register the impact on the poor and the implications for the achievement of the Goals. However, it is difficult to offer a fully up-to-date report since reality has been moving too fast for the MDG data to keep pace. Judgements about whether countries across the region are on or off track to meet the Goals must be based on longer-term trends.

Gender Differences in KAP Related to HIV/AIDS among Freshmen in Afghan University. Mansoor AB, Fungladda W, Kaewkungwal J, et al (2008)

Gender-based violence (GBV) is well recognised as a human rights violation and a public health problem with legal, social, cultural, economic and psychological dimensions. Violence against women and girls cuts across class, race, religion and ethnicity and is today no longer viewed as a private matter. Among the impacts are a wide range of health consequences including sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV and AIDS, unintended pregnancies, psychological disorders, deprival of sexual and reproductive rights and diminished well-being. The severe costs of violence against women incurred by children, families, communities and the state are thus well demonstrated and thoroughly documented by the data.
