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)

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. These epidemics are characterized by a marked contrast in patterns of HIV transmission both within and between countries. The situation in the neighbouring countries of Cambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Viet Nam provides a part ticular illustration of sharply contrasting epidemic patterns.

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.

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.

Preventing HIV/AIDS in Young People: A Systematic Review of the Evidence from Developing Countries. UNAIDS, UNFPA, UNICEF, et al (2006)

Preventing HIV/AIDS in Young People: A Systematic Review of the Evidence from Developing Countries. UNAIDS, UNFPA, UNICEF, et al (2006) The majority of HIV infected children acquire the virus from their HIV infected mothers around the time of delivery or during breastfeeding. The most efficient and cost effective way to tackle paediatric HIV globally is, therefore, to reduce mother-to-child transmission (MTCT). However, every day there are nearly 1500 new infections in children under 15 years of age, more than 90% occurring in the developing world [1, 2]. HIV-infected infants frequently present with clinical symptoms in the first year of life, by one year of age an estimated one-third of infected infants will have died, and about half by 2 years of age [2, 3]. Early recognition of HIV exposure and diagnosis of HIV is crucial and can save lives by enabling early initiation of appropriate care including ART.

Scaling-up HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment: Report of a Regional Meeting Bangkok, Thailand. WHO (2006)

Scaling-up HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment: Report of a Regional Meeting Bangkok, Thailand. WHO (2006) The HIV/AIDS pandemic has reversed the course of human development and eroded improvements in life expectancy in countries with a high prevalence of infection. Since the first cases of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) were reported in 1981 in the United States, infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has grown to pandemic proportions, resulting in more than 65 million infections and 25 million deaths. At the end of 2006, an estimated 39.5 million people were living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA).
