Attitudinal Survey Report on the Delivery of HIV and Sexual Reproductive Health Education in School Settings in Niue. UNESCO. (2015)

immage

This is a set of 5 publications of the Attitudinal Survey Reports for the four countries, and a summary report. The reports explore the attitudes of school principals, teachers, parents and students towards HIV and Sexual and Reproductive Health programmes being taught in primary and secondary schools. The findings revealed that despite the sensitivities surrounding the topic of sexuality and children, the respondents largely supported such programmes and agreed that the challenges young people face require immediate interventions. The report recommends commencing appropriate Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) topics at primary level and adapting the content appropriately for primary and secondary school students, involving parents more, and integrating other topics pertinent to brain development and self-esteem such as nutrition and physical education in the four countries. A key concern for both parents and teachers was the need for teachers to be well trained in the subject areas and to have comprehensive and attractive educational resources available.

Guidelines for HIV Mortality Measurement. WHO and UNAIDS. (2014)

image

There are multiple ways in which programmes can invest in obtaining better information on HIV/AIDS mortality. It is, however, important that these investments are made in a way that contributes to the development of civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) and strengthens the information for all causes of death, and, if possible, levels and trends of mortality.

 

This document provides practical guidance on ways to improve measurement of HIV/AIDS mortality within this context. The best strategies and preferred methods will differ according to the type of HIV epidemic. This document focuses primarily on generalized epidemics, and therefore sub-Saharan Africa, which has the overwhelming majority of countries with generalized epidemics and represents about 68% of the total global HIV/AIDS mortality.

Consolidated Strategic Information Guidelines for HIV in the Health Sector. WHO. (2015)

image

This guidance consolidates, prioritizes and describes key indicators to monitor the national and global response of the health sector to HIV. Its goal is to help countries choose, collect and systematically analyse strategic information to guide the health sector response to HIV. The aim of consolidation is to ensure that all indicators are in one place, are prioritized and linked in a result chain, and can be used to support quality care along the health sector cascade of HIV services.

This document consists of three parts – the strategic information framework, measurement along the cascade of health services for HIV, and data sources and use. Annexes include indicator tables on health systems inputs and health financing and costing and sources and additional resources to support using this guidance.

Progress of the World Women 2015-2016 - Transforming Economies, Realizing Rights. UN Women. (2015)

immage

Twenty years after the landmark Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, and at a time when the global community is defining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the post-2015 era, the global consensus on the need to achieve gender equality seems stronger than ever before. Empowering women and girls is among the goals aspired to by all, from grassroots organizations, trade unions and corporations, to Member States and intergovernmental bodies. But how far has this consensus been translated into tangible progress on the ground, and what more is needed to bridge the gaps between rhetoric and reality?

 

Drawing on promising experiences from around the world, this Report proposes a comprehensive agenda for key policy actors— including gender equality advocates, national governments and international agencies—to make human rights a lived reality for all women and girls.

Integrated Biological and Behavioural Surveillance (IBBS) Survey among Key Populations at Higher Risk of HIV in Sri Lanka, 2014 – Report. National STD/AIDS Control Programme, Management Frontiers (Pvt) Ltd and KIT. (2015)

immage

This survey estimated the prevalence of HIV and syphilis and associated risk behaviours among Female Sex Workers, Men who have Sex with Men, Intra Venous Drug Users and Beach Boys. This survey captured several aspects of high risk behaviours including unprotected sex, type of sexual partners, drug and alcohol use, and assessed the use of and access to health and social welfare programs among MARPs to identify means for increasing their coverage and uptake. A country like Sri Lanka where the HIV epidemic is of very low magnitude, there is a need for additional information about key populations at higher risk for HIV.
