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 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.

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.

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.
