These are the first guidelines dealing with hepatitis C treatment produced by the World Health Organization (WHO) and complement existing guidance on the prevention of transmission of bloodborne viruses, including HCV. They are intended for policy-makers, government officials, and others working in low- and middleincome countries who are developing programmes for the screening, care and treatment of persons with HCV infection. These guidelines serve as a framework that can allow the expansion of clinical services to patients with HCV infection, as they provide key recommendations in these areas and discuss considerations for implementation. The guidelines are also intended for health-care providers who care for persons with HCV infection in low- and middle-countries and provide them guidance in the management of patients infected with HCV.
The National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2013-2017 is designed to guide Sri Lanka’s response to HIV/AIDS & STI control in the next five years and has been formulated with broad stakeholder involvement, drawing on the existing strengths and successes and the lessons learned in the last decade. It considers the policy and legal environment, the available scientific evidence, international best practices, and the estimated needs for prevention and treatment and current coverage rates and is informed, as best as possible, by resources that would be available. Linked to the strategic plan is a framework for monitoring and evaluation of progress and achievements.
This issues brief is part of a series commissioned by the GCWA. It is designed to bring to light critical issues pertaining to the SRHR of young women living with, at risk of and affected by HIV, along with examples of good practice interventions and successful scale-up approaches.

The brief is intended to guide global advocacy and inform negotiations in the context of the Post-2015 development framework. The brief concludes with seven recommendations to advance young women’s sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and to uphold their rights in the context of HIV.

The AIDS response is producing exciting results and we can already foresee a time when the AIDS epidemic could end. Yet, the promises of science, politics and economic development will not be realized if we do not unite with women against violence as an integral part of the HIV response.
