Putting HIV Treatment to the Test - A Product Guide for Viral Load and Point-of-care CD4 Diagnostic Tools. Medecins Sans Frontieres. (2013)

immage

More than nine million people in the developing world now receive life-saving antiretroviral treatment (ART) for HIV. This represents immense progress made over the past decade – a more than 20-fold increase in the number of people on ART – but developing countries still lack access to treatment and optimised standards of care. By updated World Health Organization (WHO) eligibility standards, discussed further below, as many as 25 million people in developing countries should be on ART to reduce illness and death, and to prevent new infections.

Guidelines for Assessing the Utility of Data from Prevention of Mother-to-child Transmission (PMTCT) Programmes for HIV Sentinel Surveillance among Pregnant Women. UNAIDS and WHO. (2013)

image

This document provides guidance to countries for assessing the utility of data from programmes for prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) for HIV sentinel surveillance (HSS) among pregnant women. The objectives of these guidelines are as follows:
    1.    Describe the context and rationale for transitioning from traditional HSS based on unlinked anonymous testing (UAT) in antenatal clinics (ANCs) to a system of HSS based on routine PMTCT programme data.
    2.    Describe robust methods for assessing the quality of PMTCT programme data for use in HSS.
    3.    Describe general standards for evaluating the readiness of PMTCT programme data to serve as the basis for HSS among pregnant women.

Mapping the Donor Landscape in Global Health: HIV/AIDS. Kates J, Michaud J, Wexler A, and Valentine A. (2013)

immage

To provide some perspective on the geographic presence of global health donors and to help stakeholders begin to answer some of the above questions, the Kaiser Family Foundation is undertaking a series of analyses to describe the global health “donor landscape.” Using three years of data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), we map the geographic landscape of global health donor assistance, looking both at donor presence and magnitude of donor assistance by issue area, region, and country. The effort is intended to shed new light on donor presence within and across recipient countries, and to produce a set of figures and tools that stakeholders can use in both donor and recipient countries.

Treatment is My Life Now: Experiences of Treatments among People Living with HIV in the Pacific Islands. Gorman H. (2013)

immage

This report summarises the results of qualitative research that was conducted to better understand reasons for initiating, continuing and ceasing treatment among PLHIV in the Pacific Islands. In total, 49 PLHIV were inter-viewed, including 23 HIV-positive people in Fiji, 11 HIV-positive people in Guam, 2 HIV-positive people in Kiribati, 5 HIV-positive people in Samoa and 8 HIV-positive people in Solomon Islands. A training workshop was held in November 2011 where the team of 10 PLHIV peer researchers, 2 training support facilitators and the team leader worked in collaboration to develop the method for the study. In-depth interviews were selected as the research method to gain a detailed understanding of the participants’ treatment experiences. Research participants were recruited through PLHIV support networks where they exist and through health clinics that provide treatment to PLHIV.

Donor Funding for Health in Low - & Middle - Income Countries, 2002-2010. Wexler A, Valentine A, and Kates J. (2013)

immage

Trends between 2002 and 2010 provide an indication of donor priorities and important shifts. For instance, the U.S. remained the largest donor to health in each year over the period and provided the greatest share of its ODA for health. Additionally, the donor mix has shifted over time, in part due to the entrance of new donors, particularly the Global Fund, which was created in 2002 and has been the second largest donor since 2006. The U.S. and the Global Fund combined accounted for more than half of total donor funding for health in 2010.
