WHO has published a global TB report every year since 1997. The main aim of the report is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the TB epidemic, and of progress in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease at global, regional and country levels. This is done in the context of recommended global TB strategies and targets endorsed by WHO’s Member States and broader development goals set by the United Nations.

The WHO South-East Asia (SEA) Region has some of the highest TB-burden countries, and nearly half of all TB cases in the world are to be found in people from this Region. The Region has nearly half the global burden in terms of new cases (incidence), and close to 40% of the burden in terms of deaths due to TB. And this while only 26% of the global population lives in the Region.

This operational guidance is based on a consultation convened by the World Health Organization, the United Nations Children’s Fund and the Emergency Nutrition Network in Geneva in September 2016, which brought together a cross-section of senior-level participants from United Nations agencies, government, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and other agencies working in nutrition and HIV in emergencies. This document sets out basic principles related to HIV and infant feeding in emergency settings, and the actions that government and other stakeholders can take to prepare for emergencies.
The Compendium has been developed as a clear and concise instrument to facilitate the understanding and planning of delivery of high-quality care for everybody affected by TB. It incorporates all recent policy guidance from WHO; follows the care pathway of persons with signs or symptoms of TB in seeking diagnosis, treatment and care; and includes key algorithms and cross-cutting elements that are essential to a patient-centered approach in the cascade of TB care.
This report by UNDP, ICRW and APCOM Foundation explores the links between violence, mental health and HIV risk among men who have sex with men and transwomen in seven South Asian countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. It is based on focus group discussions in 12 sites in 7 countries with men who have sex with men and transwomen who have direct experience of violence, as well as interviews with key informants from community-based organizations, health, law, and government. The report provides concrete recommendations to stakeholders across many sectors to mitigate and minimize the effects of violence on mental health and HIV vulnerabilities through programme and policy efforts.
This Framework will guide the H6 in shaping a more effective, results-based partnership. With little more than 30 months to achieve the 2020 milestones, the time for implementation is now.
In the past decade, national programmes and donor-funded projects have made great progress in reaching people living with HIV with life-saving treatment in countries across the globe. Measuring success of these initiatives requires strong monitoring and evaluation systems that produce high-quality data.
Efforts to ensure data quality, therefore, are not singular events occurring randomly. Rather, these processes need to become institutionalized as part of all routine data management processes.
