A Hidden HIV Epidemic among Women in Vietnam. Nguyen TA, Oosterhoff P, Hardon A, et al (2008)

A Hidden HIV Epidemic among Women in Vietnam. Nguyen TA, Oosterhoff P, Hardon A, et al (2008) Background: The HIV epidemic in Vietnam is still concentrated among high risk populations, including IDU and FSW. The response of the government has focused on the recognized high risk populations, mainly young male drug users. This concentration on one high risk population may leave other populations under-protected or unprepared for the risk and the consequences of HIV infection. In particular, attention to women's risks of exposure and needs for care may not receive sufficient attention as long as the perception persists that the epidemic is predominantly among young males. Without more knowledge of the epidemic among women, policy makers and planners cannot ensure that programs will also serve women's needs.

The Secretary General’s In-depth Study on all forms of violence against women (A/61/122/Add.1, and Cor.1) recommends intensified action to eliminate violence against women at all levels. The General Assembly’s resolution urges United Nations (UN) entities to enhance coordination and intensify their efforts to eliminate violence against women in a more systematic, comprehensive and sustained way. It further calls upon UN entities to extend coordinated efforts to assist States in their efforts to eliminate violence against women.

Barriers to Access Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission for HIV Positive Women in a Well-Resourced Setting in Vietnam. Nguyen TA, Oosterhoff P, Ngoc YP, et al (2008)

cover-coming-soon

In a setting where PMTCT is available, HIV-infected women and children did not receive adequate care because of barriers to accessing those services. The results suggest key improvements would be improving quality of counselling and making PMTCT guidelines available to health services. Women should receive early HIV testing with adequate counselling, safe care and prophylaxis in a positive atmosphere towards HIV-infected women.

Gender Differences in KAP Related to HIV/AIDS among Freshmen in Afghan University. Mansoor AB, Fungladda W, Kaewkungwal J, et al (2008)
