Regional Impact Report Indo-Pacific Region. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

Countries implementing Global Fund-supported grants determine their own solutions to fighting the three diseases and are responsible for implementing the plans. The Global Fund strategically invests to achieve the highest impact, focusing on areas where the disease burden is highest, where people are least able to access lifesaving prevention and care, and where health systems lack the strength to cope alone. More than 90 percent of Global Fund investments go to low-and lower-middle-income countries, and more than 95 percent to high-burden countries.

A System-wide Approach to Analysing Efficiency across Health Programmes. Sparkes S, Durán A and Kutzin J. (2017)

immage

This “System-wide approach to analysing efficiency across health programmes” approach equips countries with a framework to identify and correct inefficiencies that compromise governments’ ability to improve, or at the very least sustain, the delivery of priority health services. More specifically, the aim is to look across the array of health programmes that are part of each country’s health system in order to detect “cross-programmatic” duplications, overlaps and misalignments. Once these have been identified, there is a foundation to address them through changes to specific aspects of how programmes are configured and operate within the context of a country’s overall health system.

Hormonal Contraceptive Eligibility for Women at High Risk HIV - Guidance Statement. WHO. (2017)

immage

The World Health Organization (WHO) convened a technical consultation during 1–2 December 2016 to review new evidence on the risk of HIV acquisition with the use of hormonal contraception. The issue was recognized as a critical one, particularly for sub-Saharan Africa, where women have a high lifetime risk of acquiring HIV, hormonal contraceptives constitute a significant component of the contraceptive method mix and unintended pregnancy is a common threat to the well-being and lives of women and girls.

Patients Helping Patients Understand Opioid Substitution Treatment. Chapman J, Fowler A, Mackenzie B, et al. (2017)

immage

This handbook has been written by a group of patients in British Columbia. We all have long experience with medication-assisted treatments for opioid dependence. The language about drug use is complex. The latest version of the manual that defines diseases and disorders (DSM-V) no longer refers to “dependence” and uses “addiction” instead. In this handbook, we continue to use “dependence” to refer to our experience of “needing the drug” and significant withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit or cut down on our use. Deciding to seek help is an important step in any process of recovery. You are making a wise decision to seek help now. People dependent on opioid drugs and not receiving opioid substitution treatment (OST) are many times more likely to die or be seriously harmed by problem drug use.

Transgender Inclusion in Drug and Alcohol Services. Valentine V and Maund O. (2017)

immage

This report details the findings of a survey conducted by the Scottish Trans Alliance into transgender inclusion in drug and alcohol services. The survey was open to any trans person living in Scotland. The survey focused on three main areas; people’s use of alcohol or other drugs, the way in which their trans identity impacted on their use of alcohol or other drugs, and their concerns about approaching or experiences of using specialist services.

Briefing Paper: Drug Dependence Treatment in China: A Policy Analysis. Tibke P. (2017)

immage

Drug use and supply have been a sensitive and high-priority issue for successive governments in China since at least the Opium Wars in the mid-19th century. China’s policy response to drug use relies on punishment and coercion as central components, including compulsory detoxification, detention in labour camps or so-called ‘rehabilitation’ facilities, and compulsory registration with law enforcement authorities resulting in surveillance and random interrogations. 

 

Yet, in the late-1990s, in a policy move that appeared to emphasize healthcare instead of punishment for people who inject drugs, China began implementing the world’s largest scale-up provision of opioid substitution therapy (OST) and needle and syringe programmes (NSP) – two critical harm reduction measures for preventing HIV transmission. However, the overall approach towards people who use drugs remains punitive and stigmatising in China. As drug use continues to rise and expand across a greater range of drugs (especially synthetic drugs such as methamphetamine), as well as amongst younger age groups, China requires a comprehensive system of evidence-based and humane drug treatment and harm reduction services capable of advancing the health and quality of life of individuals and communities.

Women in Detention: Putting the UN Bangkok Rules into Practice. Rope O, Atabay T and Huber A. (2017)

immage

In 2010, the United Nations adopted the Rules for the Treatment of Women Prisoners and Non-Custodial Measures for Women Offenders (the ‘Bangkok Rules’) to give guidance on how to meet the specific needs of women in prison. 


Sensitisation and training is a key aspect of implementing the Bangkok Rules at a national level. This Workbook has been designed to support prison staff, policymakers, healthcare practitioners, representatives of intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations, and other interested stakeholders, to put the Bangkok Rules into practice. 


The Workbook draws on the UN Nelson Mandela Rules (revised Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners), global good practice and research findings to provide practical guidance, using exercises and case studies.

Resources for Action for HIV and Health Programming with and for MSM (Revised). International HIV/AIDS Alliance. (2016)

immage

The resource guide has been developed primarily for MSM community-led organisations and civil society organisations supporting MSM community action in Africa. However, we believe that it can be useful for anyone who is planning to work with MSM, or who is already engaging or working with MSM, or who simply wants to learn more about MSM and their needs and rights.
