Regional Response Plan for TB-HIV 2017–2021. WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2017)

immage

The Global Plan provides an opportunity for greater alignment among efforts to fight both diseases. Taking inspiration from the UNAIDS target of providing treatment to 90% of people who know their HIV-positive status, the Global Plan calls for countries to find at least 90% of all people with TB in the population that require treatment (including those living with HIV) and place them on appropriate therapy (including TB treatment and preventive therapy for people living with HIV).

Bending the Curve - Ending TB: Annual Report 2017. WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2017)

immage

This is the second SEAR TB Report as we take first steps into the post 2015 era of the SDGs. In 2015, there was an estimated 4.74 million incidence of TB in the SEA Region, including HIV+TB co-infection. The total number of new cases notified to National TB programmes in the Region were around 2.65 million in appear staggering despite a reasonably good performance. Three countries that are poised well to eliminating TB by 2030 are Maldives, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. Nepal too is doing well despite the twin challenges of its mountainous terrain and coping with a major natural disaster. Timor-Leste, though small in terms of absolute TB numbers, faces a major challenge in bringing down its incidence rate.

Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health Programme to Address Equity, Social Determinants, Gender and Human Rights in Nepal. WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2017)

immage

This publication presents the findings, barriers and recommendations from the pilot, which subsequently informed the new National Adolescent Health Program, to ensure that “No one is left behind”. Measures include an increased focus on outreach services (in particular in disadvantaged areas), capacity building of health workers on adolescent-friendly and gender-responsive services, and ensuring that adolescent representatives participate in local decision-making processes on health through enhanced community engagement. The findings further reiterate the need to engage other government sectors, such as education and nutrition, to tackle the causes of early marriage and pregnancy, as well as mental and school health. As national health programmes strive to meet the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the targets set out in the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, integrating lessons from the Innov8 pilot helped strengthen the national programme’s ability to reach vulnerable adolescents, reduce inequities, and improve the overall health of adolescents in Nepal.

Regional Action Plan for Viral Hepatitis in South-East Asia, 2016–2021. WHO, Regional Office for South-East Asia. (2017)

immage

Viral hepatitis now ranks as the seventh leading cause of mortality worldwide. Although mortality due to communicable diseases has declined globally, the absolute burden and relative ranking of viral hepatitis as a cause of mortality has increased between 1990 and 2013.

 

Viral hepatitis causes at least as many, if not more, deaths annually compared with TB, AIDS, or malaria. Mortality due to viral hepatitis is increasing with time, while that due to TB, HIV and malaria is declining. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections account for more than 90% of viral hepatitis-related deaths and disability, with hepatitis A and E being responsible for the remaining.

Data hold more potential than ever before to shape the lives and living conditions of children. This is why it is crucial that UNICEF approach its data work with an understanding of both what it means to unleash the power of data for children and our own role in that process. By defining key principles for our data work, this strategic frame¬work is the first step in doing just that. It is designed to provide a broad overview of how UNICEF thinks about data for children and to lay out initial steps – already underway in numerous countries – for reorienting our investments.
