Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance (IBBS) Survey among Female Sex Workers in 22 Highway Districts of Nepal Round VI, 2016. National Centre for AIDS and STD Control. (2016)

immage

This Integrated Biological and Behavioral Surveillance (IBBS) survey was carried out by Intrepid Nepal (INPL) under the leadership of the National Center for AIDS and STD Control (NCASC) and in partnership with Save the Children-Nepal. The existing National HIV and AIDS Strategy (2011-2016) identifies Female Sex Workers (FSWs) as one of the key affected populations (KAPs) at a higher risk of spreading the HIV epidemic. This is the sixth round of the IBBS survey conducted among FSWs in 22 highway districts of Nepal. The survey is a part of the National HIV Surveillance Plan (2012) and National HIV and AIDS Strategy (2011-2016). In line with the objectives of the previous rounds of the IBBS surveys, the sixth round of the survey was undertaken to determine the trends of HIV and STIs prevalence, assess HIV and STI-related risk behaviors, explore the level of awareness and understanding of HIV/STIs, record STI symptoms, account incidence of violence, as well as assess exposure to HIV intervention programs and services among FSWs in 22 Terai highway districts of Nepal.

immage

This is the first round of the IBBS survey conducted among Female Injecting Drug Users in Kathmandu Valley (Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur districts). The females of 16 years and above who had been injecting drugs for at least three months preceding the survey were defined as Female Injecting Drug Users and enrolled in the survey.

School of Planning Monitoring Evaluation and Research carried out this survey from April 2016 to July 2016. The survey was undertaken primarily to track the prevalence of HIV, syphilis, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C Infection among Female Injecting Drug Users. The aim of the survey was to find out the baseline status of comprehensive knowledge of HIV/AIDS, risky sexual and injecting behaviors among Female Injecting Drug Users, their exposures to various HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support programs. The ethical approval for the survey was obtained from Nepal Health Research Council.

This Operational Manual has been prepared for easy reference of the staff at sentinel sites and provides the guidance on operational as well as technical aspects, for efficient implementation of HSS. It details the roles and responsibilities of the staff, recruitment process, and documentation, including instructions on filling of data forms and blood specimen management. The site in-charge should be aware of the entire set of functions and responsibilities of all the designated staff involved in surveillance activities at the sentinel site. This ensures better coordination and uninterrupted implementation of surveillance activities at the sentinel site.

Implementing Comprehensive HIV and HCV Programmes with People Who Inject Drugs: Practical Guidance for Collaborative Interventions. UNODC, INPUD, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNFPA, WHO and USAID. (2017)

immage

People who inject drugs also have higher rates of hepatitis C (HCV) and tuberculosis than the general population. The global rate of HCV among people who inject drugs is 52%, greatly surpassing even the high prevalence of HIV among them.

This tool does not seek to ignore the complex policy and legislative environment around drugs and injecting drug use in most countries, nor the need for advocacy to confront the stigma, discrimination and human-rights violations faced by people who inject drugs. However, it aims primarily to address the question: what can we do now, with the resources we have, in the kinds of environments we face, to prevent the spread of HIV and hepatitis C among people who inject drugs?

Is Every Child Counted? Status of Data for Children in the SDGs. UNICEF. (2017)

immage

“Is every child counted” provides a status report on the data availability of child related SDG indicators showing that sufficient data is available only for half of those. Many indicators, such as those on poverty and violence cannot be compared, and are either too limited or of poor quality, leaving governments without the information they need to accurately address challenges facing millions of children, or to track progress towards achieving the Goals. The report also identifies priorities for enhancing the collection, analysis and use of data for children.

Harnessing the Power of Data for Girls: Taking Stock and Looking ahead to 2030. Cappa C, Murray C, et al. (2016)

immage

This brochure includes the first global estimates on the time girls spend doing household chores such as cooking, cleaning, caring for family members and collecting water and firewood. The data show that the disproportionate burden of domestic work begins early, with girls between 5 and 9 years old spending 30 per cent more time, or 40 million more hours a day, on household chores than boys their age. The disparities grow as girls get older, with 10 to 14 year olds spending 50 per cent more time, or 120 million more hours each day.
