Papua New Guinea: Summary Country Profile for HIV/AIDS Treatment Scale Up. WHO (2005)

Papua New Guinea: Summary Country Profile for HIV/AIDS Treatment Scale Up. WHO (2005) The first case of HIV infection in Papua New Guinea was detected in 1987. By June 2005, 12 341 people had been reported to be living with HIV/AIDS. The country is facing a generalized epidemic with rapidly increasing prevalence in a difficult socioeconomic context. A national epidemiological consensus meeting in November 2004 estimated an average prevalence rate of 1.7%, and between 25 000 and 69 000 people with 15-49 years were living with HIV/AIDS. Prevalence rates among women attending antenatal care services are estimated to vary between 1% and 4%. Available data suggests that the epidemic is predominantly transmitted through heterosexual contact (84%), fuelled by high-risk behaviour including widespread commercial and casual sex. Approximately 93.1% of current reported cases are adults.

Vietnam: Summary Country Profile for HIV/AIDS Treatment Scale-Up. WHO (2005)

Vietnam: Summary Country Profile for HIV/AIDS Treatment Scale-Up. WHO (2005) Viet Nam is facing a rapidly growing HIV epidemic that is beginning to extend beyond initial concentrations in networks of injecting drug users and sex workers. The number of people living with HIV doubled between 2000 and 2005, from approximately 122 000 to 263 000. The adult HIV prevalence is estimated to be 0.5% at the national level in 2005 but exceeded 1% in several provinces. There were an estimated 37 000 new infections in 2005. Due to increased heterosexual transmission, the number of infected females compared with males is increasing each year. In 2005, the ratio was estimated to be 2 to 1, males to females. The number of AIDS-related deaths is growing and is estimated to have increased from 9000 in 2003 to 14 000 in 2005.

Scaling Up Anti-Retroviral Treatment to (Injecting) Drug Users in Asia. Asian Harm Reduction Network (2005)

Scaling Up Anti-Retroviral Treatment to (Injecting) Drug Users in Asia. Asian Harm Reduction Network (2005) In light of the endorsement of the AIDS Care Watch Campaign, led by Health and Development Networks (HDN), the Asian Harm Reduction Network (AHRN) believes that addressing issues related to injecting drug use (IDU) and anti-retroviral treatment (ART) is essential in the Asian context. Notably, AHRN believes that the provision of ART for IDUs is a fairly recent area which has not received due attention and deserves more research and consideration.

Guidelines for HIV Diagnosis and Monitoring of Antiretroviral Therapy. WHO (2005)

Guidelines for HIV Diagnosis and Monitoring of Antiretroviral Therapy. WHO (2005) The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has changed the social, moral, economic and health fabric of the world in a short span. Today HIV/AIDS is the greatest health crisis faced by the global community. Till date, this pandemic has killed nearly 30 million people. More than 40 million are living with HIV, and to this pool, an additional 14 000 are added everyday. It is expected that, if not treated, 3 million people will die every year of HIV/AIDS. It is estimated that of the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in developing countries, 6 million people require antiretroviral therapy (ART). Most of these are in 34 high burden countries of Africa and Asia.

Technical Assistance to the Greater Mekong Subregion for HIV/AIDS Vulnerability and Risk Reduction among Ethnic Minority Groups through Communication Strategies. ADB (2005)

Technical Assistance to the Greater Mekong Subregion for HIV/AIDS Vulnerability and Risk Reduction among Ethnic Minority Groups through Communication Strategies. ADB (2005) Developing human resources and skills competencies is the Eighth Flagship Program under the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) program strategic framework. The GMS Regional Cooperation Strategy and Program (RCSP, March 2004) aims to reduce poverty through enhanced connectivity, increased competitiveness, and a greater sense of community. The RCSP emphasizes the need to take precautions against the negative impacts associated with these developments, such as communicable disease transmission, environmental degradation, and illegal trafficking. Many of these issues disproportionately affect vulnerable groups such as women, children, and ethnic minorities. At the 13th GMS Ministerial Meeting in December 2004, the GMS governments highlighted the prevention of the transmission of communicable diseases across borders, with particular attention to the developing threat of HIV/AIDS.

HIV/AIDS Epidemic in India: Risk Factors, Risk Behavior & Strategies for Prevention & Control. Godbole S and Mehendale S (2005)

HIV/AIDS Epidemic in India: Risk Factors, Risk Behavior & Strategies for Prevention & Control. Godbole S and Mehendale S (2005) Since the first report of HIV infection in India in 1986, the virus has spread all over the country although there is geographic variation. There are estimated 5.1 million people infected with HIV with an overall estimated adult prevalence below 1 per cent. Surveys carried out in different sub-populations have yielded prevalence estimates, but data on HIV incidence are limited. Both HIV serotypes 1 and 2 exist in India and HIV-1 C is the commonest subtype reported. Sexual transmission of HIV is most predominant. Spread of HIV in intravenous drug use settings is localized mostly in the north eastern region and metropolitan cities and parent to child transmission is on the rise.
