Getting to Zero — Global Social Work Responds to HIV. International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) and UNAIDS. (2017)

immage

The report brings together 18 different contributions on the response to HIV from countries as diverse as Brazil, Ethiopia, the United States of America and Zimbabwe. AIDS is as much a social challenge as a medical challenge, and social workers have been part of the response to HIV since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic. The contributions describe the innovative work of social workers around the world, which can be adapted to other countries and communities towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Technical Considerations and Case Definitions to Improve Surveillance for Viral Hepatitis - Technical Report. WHO. (2016)

immage

Many countries do not have the epidemiological information needed to plan, implement, monitor, evaluate and update national strategies for the prevention and control of viral hepatitis. The technical aspects associated with viral hepatitis surveillance are perceived as complex, and little guidance is available. In the absence of a sound evidence base, viral hepatitis remains a silent epidemic. Tools are available, however, to optimize surveillance and generate information that can effectively direct prevention, control and treatment policies.

Combating Hepatitis B and C to Reach Elimination by 2030 - Advocacy Brief. WHO. (2016)

immage

In 2013, viral hepatitis was a leading cause of death worldwide (1.46 million deaths, a toll higher than that from HIV, tuberculosis or malaria, and on the increase since 1990). More than 90% of this burden is due to the sequelae of infections with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV).

Prevention can reduce the rate of new infections, but the number of those already infected would remain high for a generation. In the absence of additional efforts, 19 million hepatitis-related deaths are anticipated from 2015 to 2030. Treatment now can prevent deaths in the short- and medium term.

Guidelines on Hepatitis B and C Testing. WHO. (2017)

image

Testing and diagnosis of hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) infection is the gateway for access to both prevention and treatment services, and is a crucial component of an effective response to the hepatitis epidemic. Early identification of persons with chronic HBV or HCV infection enables them to receive the necessary care and treatment to prevent or delay progression of liver disease. Testing also provides an opportunity to link people to interventions to reduce transmission, through counselling on risk behaviours and provision of prevention commodities (such as sterile needles and syringes) and hepatitis B vaccination.

Eliminating Discrimination in Health Care. UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

This report briefly describes and defines the challenges and impacts of discrimination in health-care settings. Such discrimination affects people seeking access to HIV prevention, testing, treatment, care and support measures, as well as health-care workers in their workplace. International human rights standards provide the rationale for catalysing global action to eliminate such discrimination. This report aims to serve as a reference for policy-makers and other key stakeholders engaged in shaping policies and programmes to regulate health care, and eliminate discrimination and other structural barriers to achieving healthy lives for all.

This publication is a tool for action developed by UNFPA, Promundo and the MenEngage Alliance. It provides guidance on best practices to promote partnerships between civil society organizations and government representatives on engaging men and boys in gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

The goal of this publication is to strengthen these relationships to scale up and/or institutionalize evidence-based approaches to promoting gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights. This will be critical for moving beyond small scale and pilot initiatives.

Focus on Women and Girls. The Global Fund. (2016)

immage

Even among women and girls, certain groups such as sex workers, transgender women and survivors of sexual and gender-based violence are particularly at risk of HIV infection. As many as 35 percent of women worldwide experience intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime, and rates are even higher in countries with ongoing conflict, or enduring post-conflict or post-disaster situations.
