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 Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infection Patterns and Risk Behaviors in Different Population Groups and Provinces in Viet Nam. Tuan NA, Fylkesnes K, Thang BD, et al (2007) Many countries in Asia are experiencing epidemics of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in injecting drug users and female sex workers.

Scaling up Antiretroviral Treatment: Lessons Learnt from Thailand. WHO and Ministry of Public Health Thailand (2007)

Scaling up Antiretroviral Treatment: Lessons Learnt from Thailand. WHO and MOPH Thailand (2007) This is the report of the third joint antiretroviral treatment (ART) programme review for Thailand since the programme started in 1992. Based on the recommendations of the first review held in 1995, the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), Thailand started a pilot programme for the prevention of mother-to- child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV in north-east and northern Thailand, along with the establishment of a HIV/AIDS clinical research network. This was followed, in 2000, by large-scale implementation of the national PMTCT programme in public hospitals. The second joint programme review, conducted in July 2000, recommended expansion of quality ART services to cover all government hospitals following the example of the national PMTCT programme.

Health Facility Tools to Assess Preparedness for HIV Services Delivery, Including ART. USAID and FHI (2007)

Health Facility Tools to Assess Preparedness for HIV Services Delivery, Including ART. USAID and FHI (2007) To introduce HIV-related services in health and community facilities, it is essential that a rapid and comprehensive process of appraisal and implementation planning occur for each site. This process includes several steps to ensure that the proper contacts are made, accurate data are gathered and used for program planning, and comprehensive program planning occurs. Participants from technical and program support areas should be involved in all aspects of the process. This manual outlines the rapid appraisal and implementation planning framework used to plan service delivery in FHI-supported sites and provides tools to be used along the way.

Antiretroviral Medication Policy for Refugees. UNHCR (2007)

Antiretroviral Medication Policy for Refugees. UNHCR (2007) The introduction of effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the 1990s dramatically changed the prognosis of people suffering from HIV and AIDS and provided hope for millions of people around the globe. Of the 39 million people currently living with HIV in low and middle income countries, 6.5 million of them are in need of ART; however, by the end of 2005, just over 1.3 million people were receiving the treatment.1 Although ART is not a cure and there are many side-effects and concerns about resistance, ART greatly improves the quality of life by reducing morbidity and mortality among people living with HIV. ART has revitalised whole communities. Not all persons who are HIV positive need ART. Rather, only those with reduced immunity, shown by clinical symptoms and signs or a specific blood test, require treatment.

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.
