HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. FHI-Impact and USAID (2003)

HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. FHI, Impact and USAID (2003) Only about five percent of the 30 million people in poor countries who need treatment for HIV infec- tion are receiving it. As the need for treatment grows, so does the demand. The June 2001 Declaration of Commitment by the United Nations General Assembly states that “Prevention, care, support and treatment for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS are mutually reinforcing elements of an effective response and must be integrated in a comprehensive approach to combat the epidemic.” Encouraged by global support for expanding access to treatment and by a decrease in the price of antiretroviral drugs, programs are increasingly seeking ways to add a treatment component to their prevention, care, and support services.

Improving Access to Anti-Retroviral Treatment in Cambodia. Alliance and Khmer HIV/AIDS NGO Alliance (2003)

Improving Access to Anti-Retroviral Treatment in Cambodia. Alliance and Khmer HIV/AIDS NGO Alliance (2003) Cambodia is often cited as an example of how an effective multi-sectoral response to HIV, with strong political commitment and effective co-operation between government, non- governmental organisations (NGOs), and international organisations, can impact on the spread of infection. Cambodia has an HIV/AIDS prevalence of 2.6% in the adult population (15-49 years). Government data indicates that HIV prevalence rates in some of the populations under surveillance appear to be declining. However, the current data indicates that HIV/AIDS is not uniformly distributed throughout the country and numbers of cases of AIDS and AIDS-related deaths continue to increase.

National Guideline for the Use of ART in Adults and Adolescents. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2003)

National Guideline for the Use of ART in Adults and Adolescents. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2003) The escalating HIV epidemic in Cambodia is now producing an expanding need for HIV/AIDS care, as people progress to advanced and symptomatic HIV disease. This need for HIV/AIDS care and support will increase considerably over the next decade, as each year approximately 20 000 people will develop AIDS and die unless expanded interventions are available. The limited resources of the Cambodian health care system will be further stretched due to this impact of HIV/AIDS on care needs. The presence of such a large number of HIV infections in the population creates an inescapable increase in demand for health care.

A Public Health Approach to Antiretroviral Treatment: Overcoming Constraints. WHO (2003)

A Public Health Approach to Antiretroviral Treatment: Overcoming Constraints. WHO (2003) A growing, global movement of people living with HIV/AIDS and their advocates, civil society organizations, health professionals, philanthropic foundations, international agencies, governments and private corporations is now working to reverse this injustice. The efforts of this move- ment have helped to shape a global consensus that allowing millions of deaths from a treatable disease is intolerable and that prevention strategies alone are insufficient to contain the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Treatment and care are therefore the crucial, missing link in the global response because, by alleviating suffering, reducing stigma and mitigating the economic and social impact of disease, they can reinforce the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Scaling up Antiretroviral Therapy in Resource-Limited Settings: Guidelines for a Public Health Approach. WHO (2002)

Scaling up Antiretroviral Therapy in Resource-Limited Settings: Guidelines for a Public Health Approach. WHO (2002) Less than a decade ago, someone living with HIV/AIDS had little hope.HIV infection brought a steady inexorable decline towards the complete destruction of the immune system and death. The introduction of ARVs in 1996 was a turning point for hundreds of thousands of people with access to sophisticated health care systems. Although they cannot cure HIV/AIDS, antiretrovirals (ARVs) have dramatically reduced mortality and morbidity, prolonged lives, and improved the quality of life of many people living with HIV/AIDS.

Summary Report: Health Care Provider Survey in Gujarat, India. DFID, Gujarat State AIDS Control Society and FHI (2001)

Summary Report: Health Care Provider Survey in Gujarat, India. DFID, Gujarat State AIDS Control Society and FHI (2001) Sexualy Transmitted Infections (STIs) have been a major public health problem in all the developing countries. India had a National STD Control Programme even before we got our independence. The issue of STI control, however, did not receive the due attention till the programme was merged with the National AIDS Control Programme developed after the emergence of HIV/AIDS as a significant public health problem. HIV/AIDS has now, very rightly, been recognised as an important developmental challenge with a potential to adversely affect the entire socio-economic infrastructure of the nation.
