Every Child Alive: The Urgent Need to End Newborn Deaths. UNICEF. (2018)

immage

Deaths among children aged 1 month to 5 years old have fallen dramatically in recent decades. But progress in reducing the deaths of newborn babies – those aged less than 1 month – has been less impressive, with 7,000 newborns still dying every day. This is partly because newborn deaths are difficult to address with a single drug or intervention – they require a system-wide approach. It is also due to a lack of momentum and global commitment to newborn survival. We are failing the youngest, most vulnerable people on the planet – and with so many millions of lives at stake, time is of the essence.

WHO Treatment Guidelines for Isoniazid-resistant Tuberculosis: Supplement to the WHO Treatment Guidelines for Drug-resistant Tuberculosis. WHO. (2018)

image

The emergence of drug-resistant TB is a major global health concern, which threatens the ambitious goals and progress set under the End TB Strategy. Isoniazid-resistant TB, which is present in 8% of TB cases worldwide, reduces treatment success in patients treated with the standard 6-month first-line regimen.

 

The new WHO recommendations for the treatment of isoniazid-resistant, rifampicin-susceptible TB are based upon a review of evidence from patients treated with such regimens by a Guideline Development Group in conformity with WHO requirements for evidence-based policies.

Rapid Assessment of Drug Use Patterns (RADUP). National STD/AIDS Control Program and National Dangerous Drugs Control Board. (2018)

immage

Research on details of pattern of drug use among People Who Use Drugs (PWUD) and People Who Inject Drugs (PWID) in Sri Lanka is relatively scarce. In order to initiate interventions aimed at reduction of risks due to drug use in the country, adequate information about pattern of drug use is critical. Thus, the NSACP along with NDDCB has conducted this “Rapid Assessment of Drug Use Pattern (RADUP) in Sri Lanka to inform risk reduction interventions for PWUD/PWID”. The Alliance Regional Technical Support Hub South Asia provided technical support. The study was aimed at (i) understanding the pattern of drug use among the non-institutionalized PWUD and PWID in selected districts in Sri Lanka and (ii) recommending policies and programmes related to drug use issues in Sri Lanka.
