Situation Assessment of Adolescents in Selected Districts of Pakistan for Life Skills and HIV Prevention. National AIDS Control Program Pakistan and UNICEF (2006) Adolescence is a critical period during which dramatic physical, physiological, emotional and behavioral changes take place quite suddenly. These changes coupled with the absence of authentic information to know, understand and appreciate them, cause anxiety among adolescents who may be pushed into courses of actions without having a chance to think fully of consequences.

Psychosocial Aspects of HIV/AIDS: Children & Adolescents. Close KL and Rigamonti AK (2005)

Psychosocial Aspects of HIV/AIDS: Children & Adolescents. Close KL and Rigamonti AK (2005) HIV/AIDS takes an enormous physical toll on those infected by the virus as well as those who care for them.

Study of Young Men’s Sexual Behaviour Vientiane, Lao PDR August – November 2004. Burnet Institute (2005)

cover-coming-soon

Given that the spread of HIV throughout a community or a country is entirely contingent on human behaviour, we must acknowledge that public health interventions designed to prevent HIV transmission need to take account of the sexual practices of the relevant population. A more comprehensive approach would also consider other behaviours related to the spread of HIV - for example, behaviours around intravenous drug use and blood transfusions. The patterns of human sexuality within a population are generally considered to be culturally specific1; as such, we need to evaluate societies individually if we wish to introduce public health measures for sexually transmitted infections (STI) that have both local relevance and local acceptance.

Bangladesh National Consultation Report with Vulnerable Young People 2004. UNICEF (2004)

Bangladesh National Consultation Report with Vulnerable Young People 2004. UNICEF (2004) HIV/AIDS is an emerging public health concern in Bangladesh. While HIV prevalence is still very low (less than 1%) among all high-risk groups except IDUs in central Bangladesh (4%), the findings of the recent result sero surveillance (June 2003) has moved Bangladesh further towards the critical status of concentrated epidemic. The potential risk situation is exacerbated by factors such as low risk perception among high-risk behaviour groups, low condom use (especially among clients of sex workers), and a high rate of needle sharing among intravenous drug users, notwithstanding various interventions.
