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.

Increase Coverage of HIV and AIDS Services in Myanmar. Williams B, Baker D, Buhler M, et al (2008)

Increase Coverage of HIV and AIDS Services in Myanmar. Williams B, Baker D, Buhler M, et al (2008) Myanmar is experiencing an HIV epidemic documented since the late 1980s. The National AIDS Programme national surveillance ante-natal clinics had already estimated in 1993 that 1.4% of pregnant women were HIV positive, and UNAIDS estimates that at end 2005 1.3% (range 0.7–2.0%) of the adult population was living with HIV. While a HIV surveillance system has been in place since 1992, the programmatic response to the epidemic has been slower to emerge although short- and medium-terms plans have been formulated since 1990. These early plans focused on the health sector, omitted key population groups at risk of HIV transmission and have not been adequately funded. The public health system more generally is severely under-funded.

Our Health, Our Right: The Roles and Experiences of PLHIV Networks in Securing Access to Generic ARV Medicines in Asia. Asia-Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (2008)

Our Health, Our Right: The Roles and Experiences of PLHIV Networks in Securing Access to Generic ARV Medicines in Asia. Asia-Pacific Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS (2008) This book gives concrete examples of how PLHIV networks in partnership with key partners have reduced the impact of patents on medicines, including for medicines for the wider population in Thailand and India. It provides a clear illustration of how small local and national actions led by PLHIV can generate tremendous global impacts in today’s borderless and inter-connected world.

Prevention and Treatment of HIV and Other STIs among Men who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Populations. WHO, UNAIDS and UNDP (2008)

Prevention and Treatment of HIV and Other STIs among Men who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Populations. WHO, UNAIDS and UNDP (2008) Surveillance and special surveys in many parts of the world show that the prevalence of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is high among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people compared with men in the general population. These infections can be transmitted to their sexual partners, who are men and, in some parts of the world, frequently women as well. In some countries where the epidemic had previously been contained, and in countries with good practices, a resurgence of HIV and other STIs has been noted, in particular, among populations of MSM.

HIV and Its Treatment: What You Should Know- Health Information for Patients. AIDSinfo (2008)

HIV and Its Treatment: What You Should Know- Health Information for Patients. AIDSinfo (2008) These fact sheets are intended for use by people recently diagnosed with HIV infection or those who are considering starting HIV treatment. The fact sheets are designed as a series, but can also be used as stand-alone documents. Information in these fact sheets is based on Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in HIV-1-Infected Adults and Adolescents, developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Panel on Antiretroviral Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents, which is convened by the HHS in conjunction with the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. The Guidelines, which is a "living document," provides updates on new advances in the treatment of HIV. The current version of the document is available on the AIDSinfo Web site: http://aidsinfo.nih.gov/guidelines/.

Understanding HIV in Afghanistan: The Emerging Epidemic and Opportunity for Prevention. National AIDS Control Program Afghanistan, Johns Hopkins University and Indian Institute of Health Management Research (2008)

Understanding HIV in Afghanistan: The Emerging Epidemic and Opportunity for Prevention. National AIDS Control Program Afghanistan, JHU and Indian Institute of Health Management Research (2008) Recent studies on HIV transmission in Asian countries characterize an epidemic which centers largely around three behaviors: 1) shared needles and syringes, 2) unprotected sex with sex workers, and 3) unprotected sex between males. While HIV cases are not confined to these three most-at-risk populations (Injecting Drug Users (IDUs), Sex Workers (SWs) and their clients, and men who have sex with men (MSM)), the speed and direction of HIV transmission largely depends on the size, behavior, and access to information of these sub- populations.

HIV Clinical Staging and Case Reporting: Participant Manual Module 2. WHO (2007)

HIV Clinical Staging and Case Reporting: Participant Manual Module 2. WHO (2007) The module is divided into seven units. The units are convenient blocks of material and should be studied in the order in which they are presented. In addition, there are several appendices at the end of the module. The last three appendices guide surveillance officers through the process of developing an action plan and operations manual for establishing and maintaining an HIV case-based surveillance system. Throughout the module, small group discussion questions are designed to assist in the development of the action plan and operations manual. The expected outcome from this module is an enhanced understanding of HIV case-based surveillance as well as a completed (or nearly complete) action plan and operations manual.

Human Development Report 2007/2008 - Fighting Climate Change: Human Solidarity in a Divided World. UNDP (2007)

Human Development Report 2007/2008 - Fighting Climate Change: Human Solidarity in a Divided World. UNDP (2007) Climate change will undermine international efforts to combat poverty. Seven years ago, political leaders around the world gathered to set targets for accelerated progress in human development. Th e Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) defined a new ambition for 2015. Much has been achieved, though many countries remain off track. Climate change is hampering efforts to deliver the MDG promise. Looking to the future, the danger is that it will stall and then reverse progress built-up over generations not just in cutting extreme poverty, but in health, nutrition, education and other areas.
