The Funding Crisis for Harm Reduction: Donor Retreat, Government Neglect and the Way forward The Global. Cook C, Bridge J, McLean S, et al. (2014)

immage

Funding for HIV-related harm reduction programmes globally is in crisis. There can be no ‘AIDS free generation’ without targeted efforts with and for people who inject drugs, yet, as this report shows, funding for harm reduction falls dangerously short of estimated need. As a result, coverage of essential HIV and harm reduction programmes targeting people who inject drugs is very low and wholly inadequate to respond effectively to HIV among this community. While this has been the case for some time, the data and policy analysis conducted for this report shows that rather than action being taken to address this problem, the situation looks set to deteriorate.

In or Out? Asia-Pacific Review of Young Key Populations in National AIDS Strategic Plans. UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF, et al. (2014)

immage

This review analyses the inclusion of young key populations in the NSPs for HIV and AIDS of 19 countries in the Asia-Pacific region namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Fiji, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Viet Nam. The primary document examined for the review of each country’s strategy was the NSP. However, where operational, implementation or monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plans were available these were also assessed. These documents were reviewed using an analytical framework developed following consideration of: seven existing NSP reviews; guidance documents on comprehensive packages for key populations; and the HIV and AIDS Investment Framework.

Good Labor Practices for Migrant Workers in the Thai Seafood Processing Industry. Kmonpetch A, Aksorngul K, Tangphatchayakoon P, and et al. (2014)

immage

The Good Labor Practices model (GLP)  addresses policy for labor protections and eradication of exploitation and human trafficking, including support for measures to combat child labor in the fisheries. Relevant agencies from the government, private organizations and business owners should consider the GLP model to inform guidelines for promoting decent work conditions, labor and worksite inspections, preventing and managing cases of labor rights violations, mechanisms of filing grievances, issuing of work permits, registering MW and verification of nationality. Migrant workers (MW) working as deep-sea fishing boat crew are an especially vulnerable population with elevated risk of harm and exploitation due to human trafficking practices.

Bouncing Back - Relapse in the Golden Triangle. Kramer T, Jensema E, Jelsma M and Blickman T. (2014)

immage

‘Bouncing Back’ analyses the causes and effects of the main regional trends in the production and consumption of drugs. It argues that zero-tolerant prohibition and deadline-oriented thinking are among the main reasons for the increase in drug-related problems. The report offers alternative policy options that would be more effective and realistic, and are also humane and evidence-based, in line with international best practices and human rights standards.
