Scaling up HIV Treatment for MSM in Bangkok: What Does It Take? — A Modelling and Costing Study. Zhang L, Phanuphak N, Henderson K, et al. (2015)

immage

The HIV epidemic amongst men who have sex with men (MSM) in Bangkok is substantial. The population size of MSM in Bangkok is 120,000-250,000, with approximately one-third (33.5 percent) considered high-risk, characterized by their young age, multiple partnerships, frequent unprotected anal intercourse, and sexual activities around MSM hotspots. In metropolitan Bangkok, HIV prevalence among MSM reportedly increased from 21 percent to 28 percent between 2000 and 2012. The Thai Working Group of Estimation and Projection (2013) projected an estimate of 39,000 new HIV infections would occur in Thailand during 2012-2016, based on the AIDS Epidemic Model (AEM).

An Innovative Approach to Triple Elimination of Mother-to-child Transmission of HIV, Syphilis and Hepatitis B in Viet Nam. Nguyen VTT, Trang HQ, Anh NTL, et al. (2015)

immage

Viet Nam has committed to working towards the elimination of HIV mother-to-child transmission. The stated goals are to reduce the vertical transmission rate of HIV nationally to less than 5% by 2015 and to less than 2% by 2020.

Viet Nam has high hepatitis B virus (HBV) and low HIV and syphilis prevalence among pregnant women. Antenatal care (ANC) coverage is high (one visit 96,6%, three visits 87.5%)*. Prevention of mother-to-child-transmission (PMTCT) of HIV and infant hepatitis B immunization are managed by separate vertical programmes and services. It is national policy that free provider-initiated universal HIV testing is recommended to pregnant women (PW). Syphilis and hepatitis B testing are not routinely offered. This study aims at demonstrating an innovative model of combined universal screening for HIV, syphilis, and HBV for PW and treatment of infected PW in ANC to prevent vertical transmission of three infections.

Fast-Track Cities: Update 2015. UNAIDS. (2015)

immage

Launched only a year ago, Fast-Track cities has rapidly taken root and grown. This is the first annual update on progress in implementing the Fast-Track cities approach and it supports one of the seven key commitments contained in the Paris Declaration. This report reflects on the actions taken by cities and by the four core partners— the city of Paris, UNAIDS, the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC)—towards ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030. Future reports will illustrate good practices and quantifiable evidence of progress that will inspire and inform Fast-Track cities and the many stakeholders helping to confront AIDS as a health and development challenge.

Programmatic Update on Antiretrovirals: Maximizing the Treatment and Prevention Potential of Antiretroviral Drugs: Early Country Experiences towards Implementing a Treat-all Policy. WHO. (2015)

immage

WHO guidelines on antiretroviral therapy (ART) have evolved during the past decade towards recommending earlier treatment, as evidence has shown clinical and public health benefit, treatment has become simpler, more tolerable and more affordable, and systems for ARV delivery have been streamlined for scale.

This update summarizes experiences of countries that have already begun to implement earlier treatment approaches as part of a national policy or pilot programmes. Overall, these five country examples demonstrate that scaling up a treat-all policy, across diverse populations (adults, key populations and children) is acceptable and feasible, with early benefits and no immediate evidence of harmful effects.

What Communities Need to Know About the WHO ARV Guidelines. WHO and UNAIDS. (2015)

immage

Developed by Southern African AIDS Trust, with the support of WHO and UNAIDS, the summary of the the WHO’s New Consolidated guidelines on the use of antiretroviral drugs for treating and preventing HIV infection is now available.

Among many new recommendations is that antiretroviral therapy (ART) should be initiated in everyone living with HIV at any CD4 cell count. Another is that the use of daily oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is recommended as a prevention choice for people at substantial risk of HIV infection as part of combination prevention approaches.
