Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Therapy in HIV Positive Adults and Adolescents in Pakistan. National AIDS Control Program Pakistan (2005)

Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Therapy in HIV Positive Adults and Adolescents in Pakistan. National AIDS Control Program Pakistan (2005) Successful treatment of HIV/AIDS depends on strict adherence by HIV positive patients in taking their medications as instructed and for health care providers to recommend antiretroviral treatment (ART) based on rigorous scientific evidence. The devastating consequences of incorrect or partial HIV treatment are premature death, increased morbidity, development of drug resistant HIV strains, and lack of further treatment options.

Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Treatment Preparedness in Thailand. WHO, Golbal Fund, Talp, et al (2004)

Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Treatment Preparedness in Thailand. WHO, Golbal Fund, Talp, et al (2004) In 2001 the Thai Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) launched an antiretroviral therapy (ART) programme. A decentralized approach was adopted and treatment was initially provided to 1500 people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) in 112 govern- ment hospitals. Previously, health care for PLHA had been provided from specialist centres. By February 2004, 23 000 PLHA were being treated in 860 hospitals.

UNICEF/WHO Technical Consultation: Improving Access to Appropriate Paediatric ARV Formulations. UNICEF and WHO (2004)

UNICEF/WHO Technical Consultation: Improving Access to Appropriate Paediatric ARV Formulations. UNICEF and WHO (2004) In 2003, more than 5 million people were newly infected with HIV – as many as 700,000 (13%) of them were children. Six hundred and thirty thousand (95%) of these new infections were caused through mother-to-child transmission, and 90% of the infected children live in sub-Saharan Africa. AIDS case reporting is unreliable, however it is estimated that 500,000 children are currently in need of antiretroviral therapy (ARV) world wide. In 2003 some 490,000 child deaths under age 14 were due to AIDS, and an estimated 17% of all AIDS deaths were among children. There are 7 countries where AIDS accounts for more than 10% of the under five mortality.

Mapping HIV Vulnerability along Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Odor Meanchey and Preah Vihear, Cambodia. UNDP (2004)

Mapping HIV Vulnerability along Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Odor Meanchey and Preah Vihear, Cambodia. UNDP (2004) The poor state of Cambodia’s infrastructure has posed a major obstacle to development and poverty reduction efforts. The Cambodian government has recognized this challenge and made infrastructure, especially road rehabilitation, one of its top priorities. The “Provincial and Rural Infrastructure Project (PRIP)”, 2003-2005, was jointly developed by the Cambodian Ministry of Public Work and Transport (MPWT), the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD), the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and the World Bank (WB). As part of this project, parts of Route six, which run through the four provinces of Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Preah Vihear and Odor Meanchey, have been targeted for rehabilitation. Although this project is expected to reduce poverty, negative side effects are also expected, such as the increase in HIV vulnerability of roadside communities. It is therefore essential to identify populations that are most vulnerable to HIV infection, and develop ways to build their HIV resilience.

Expanding Access to HIV/AIDS Treatment: Mission Report Indonesia. WHO (2004)

Expanding Access to HIV/AIDS Treatment: Mission Report Indonesia. WHO (2004) Recently, Indonesia has adopted an ambitious target of providing antiretroviral treatment (ART) to at least 10 000 people by the end of 2005. As of January 2004, of an estimated 15 000 people who were in need of ART, only 1300 persons were receiving the treatment. The intermediate target for 2005 is in line with the global WHO and UNAIDS "3 by 5" initiative. The initiative aims to provide three million people in developing countries (out of six million in need globally) access to ART by the end of 2005. The ultimate goal of the initiative is to provide universal access.

Guidelines for HIV Diagnosis and Monitoring of Antiretroviral Therapy. WHO (2004)

Guidelines for HIV Diagnosis and Monitoring of Antiretroviral Therapy. WHO (2004) The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has changed the social, moral, economic and health fabric of the world in a short span. Today HIV/AIDS is the greatest health crisis faced by the global community. Till date, this pandemic has killed nearly 30 million people. More than 40 million are living with HIV, and to this pool, an additional 14 000 are added everyday. It is expected that, if not treated, 3 million people will die every year of HIV/AIDS. It is estimated that of the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in developing countries, 6 million people require antiretroviral therapy (ART). Most of these are in 34 high burden countries of Africa and Asia. Of these, only 400 000 are currently receiving ART.

HIV/AIDS Treatment and Prevention in India: Modeling the Cost and Consequences. The World Bank (2004)

HIV/AIDS Treatment and Prevention in India: Modeling the Cost and Consequences. The World Bank (2004) Now that the daily cost of high quality AIDS drugs has fallen to less than one dollar a day, what would happen if the Indian government were to finance such treatment? This was the question posed to World Bank staff by an official of the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO). To answer this question, the World Bank assembled a team of Indian and inter- national authors and asked them to estimate the costs and health benefits of three different national policy options.
