This annual publication of ours has been recognized as a useful document for all in the health sector, ranging from policy-makers and planners to the health managers and field workers.

 

2016 has been a year of special significance as the development partners have reiterated their commitment to continue efforts with us at all levels to enhance cooperation in health services. Successful holding of the ‘Regional Conference on Measurement and Accountability for Health’ appears to have brought a ray of hope for strengthening health information at a heightened level. The DGHS will continue utilizing its vast experiences earned through working with the concerned government bodies, NGOs, CBOs, private sector, civil society actors, media, national and international agencies, and other stakeholders to promote better health outcomes.

The Funding Crisis for Harm Reduction. Cook C, Bridge J, McLean S, Phelan M and Barrett D. (2017)

immage

Funding for HIV-related harm reduction programmes globally is in crisis. There can be no ‘AIDS free generation’ without targeted efforts with and for people who inject drugs. Yet funding for harm reduction falls dangerously short of estimated need. While this has been the case for some time, the situation looks set to deteriorate with changing donor policies and national government neglect.

This failure to invest will bring an exponential rise in HIV transmission which in turn will cause additional costs to government health sectors.

This report investigates international donor commitments, both multilateral and bilateral, as well as national investments in harm reduction. It calls on international donors, national governments and UN agencies to take concrete actions to address the funding crisis.

From Shadows to Light: Advocacy for Children of HIV-affected Key Populations. Miller J. (2016)

immage

Emerging information and anecdotal reports indicate that these children require special attention because of they may be negatively affected as result of either direct or associative relationship with their parents who are themselves members of key populations. But what are these children’s issues and how might they be different from their peers? We know their parents face endemic violence, criminalisation, stigma, social-exclusion and discrimination globally, but what do we know of the children’s needs? We may occasionally ask adults from key populations about their issues as parents, but do we ask about their children?

For many years now, the children of HIV-affected key populations—sex workers, transgender people, people who use drugs, and gay men and other men who have sex with me—have remained in the shadows, figuratively tucked behind their parents’ legs, out of sight. A broad alliance of community groups, NGOs and funders is emerging to bring these children into the light.
