With funding support from the European Commission (EC), the ICP project has been implemented since 2007 in Prey Veng, Kampong Chnnang, and Kampong Speu provinces. The project consists of homebased care (HBC); facilitation of access to care and treatment; provision of socio-economic support to PLHIV, OVC and their families; and stigma and discrimination reduction faced by PLHIV and OVC. Reviewing and documenting the mid-term project, relating to all relevant information regarding project implementation, is crucial in order to monitor progress and provide feedback to the project planner and implementer, so that revised interventions and better project implementation can be made.

Diamonds - Stories of Women from the Asia Pacific Network of People Living with HIV. APN+ and UNIFEM (2009)

2009 Diamonds_APN_19.2

This is a compilation of stories about the lives of women living with HIV in the Asia-Pacific region. Each woman has overcome incredible challenges to become a strong leader, advocate and role model for other HIV-positive women. These women are like diamonds, formed under immense pressure, hewn from the darkness to shine, strongest and most brilliant of all gems. Interviewing these women and crafting their stories has been one of the most joyous tasks I could have undertaken. I know each woman to some extent because they have all attended at least one of the training workshops I have conducted in the region and several have become my close friends.

People Living with HIV Stigma Index - User Guide. International Planned Parenthood Federation, Global Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS, International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS and UNAIDS (2009)

Stigma Index_User_Guide_cat_18_and_22.2

HIV stigma and discrimination adversely affect every aspect of life for people living with HIV and their families. In many settings, an HIV diagnosis still can be as devastating as the illness itself, leading to job loss, school expulsion, violence, social ostracism, loss of property, and denial of health services and emotional support. People living in fear are less likely to adopt preventive behavior, come in for testing, disclose their sero-status to others, access care and adhere to treatment.

A Community Based Care and Support Model for Injecting Drug Users Living with HIV. Alliance (2008)

A Community Based Care and Support Model for Injecting Drug Users Living with HIV. Alliance (2008) With a population of approximately 2.4 million which is about 0.2 per cent of India’s population, Manipur ranks highest in HIV prevalence amongst the seven northeastern states of India. The adult HIV prevalence in Manipur (1.67 per cent) is even greater than the estimated national average (0.36 per cent). According to a recent report from the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) – “...recent studies indicate that HIV prevalence has been stabilising, and states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Nagaland have started showing declining trends...” – it is to be noted here that Manipur does not figure among these states. Insurgency, high unemployment, poverty and easy availability of drugs leading to much other risky behaviour have all been contributing factors to high HIV prevalence.
