Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) Report: Early Implementation 2016-2017. WHO. (2018)

immage

The aim of the report is to document participation efforts and outcomes across countries, and highlight differences and constraints identified to date. In this first GLASS report data vary considerably in terms of completeness, so no attempt was made to compare AMR status at a regional or global level. However, as GLASS and country participation evolves, the data reported will help understand surveillance capacities and mechanisms of reporting across countries in all regions, and will inform further GLASS development.

National Health Sector Response to HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Sri Lanka, 2017. National STD/AIDS Control Programme. (2017)

immage

Sri Lanka, during these last five years, has successfully maintained its low HIV prevalence status although numbers of HIV positive cases have been slowly rising over the years. The main population groups with a rising number of HIV positive cases have been males having sex with males (MSM) and returnee external migrant workers. However, numbers are not high so that identifying the key populations (KPs) in Sri Lanka is not straightforward.

Kauntim Mi Tu – Port Moresby: Key Findings from the Key Population Integrated Bio-Behavioural Survey, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. Kelly-Hanku A, Amos-Kuma A, Badman SG, Weikum D and et al. (2017)

immage

Kauntim mi tu, an integrated bio-behavioural survey (IBBS) of women and girls who sell and exchange sex (from here on referred to as FSW), and men who have sex with men and transgender women (from here on referred to as MSM/TG), was conducted to support the scale up of essential HIV prevention and treatment services for these populations. The survey was conducted in Port Moresby between June and November 2016 and used respondent-driven sampling (RDS) to recruit participants. Kauntim mi tu had two goals: 1) to conduct Papua New Guinea’s first population size estimations of FSW and MSM/TG; and 2) to collect representative bio-behavioural data about FSW and MSM/TG in order to inform HIV and STI prevention and treatment services and policy.

The IDUIT Brief Guide for People who Use Drugs. International Network of People Who Use Drugs (INPUD). (2017)

immage

People who use drugs are heavily affected by HIV, hepatitis C (HCV), and tuberculosis (TB) and are often neglected in countries’ and cities’ responses to the epidemics. There are effective means to prevent and treat HIV, HCV and TB among people who use drugs, but resources (financial, human and material) are often not adequately invested to make them accessible. The reasons for this are multifaceted and include criminalization, stigma, discrimination and denial of basic human rights to people who use drugs. This IDUIT Brief Guide for People who Use Drugs is intended to outline the key concepts of Implementing Comprehensive HIV and HCV Programs with People who Inject Drugs: Practical Guidance for Collaborative Interventions (the IDUIT) related to prevention, treatment and empowerment with regard to HIV and HCV, and point to how activists and professionals from among the community of people who use drugs might promote better policy and practice.

Handbook for the Use of Digital Technologies to Support Tuberculosis Medication Adherence. WHO. (2018)

immage

TB patients and health-care providers are surrounded by information and communication technologies. They will be using these tools increasingly to obtain better care. However, in doing so they are often faced with basic questions, such as: Which application is best suited to my circumstances? What is the evidence for effectiveness? How do I implement it? Who will pay?

 

This handbook aims to address some of these questions. It focuses specifically on three technologies that are being widely used to help TB patients complete their treatment over the many months that their regimens last.
