  1. Mapping HIV services and policies for adolescents: A survey of ten countries in sub-Saharan Africa

    PEPFAR and USAID, in collaboration with UNICEF, supported AIDSTAR-One in conducting a mapping activity to identify HIV policies and services for adolescents in 10 sub-Saharan African countries: Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

  2. Young people and the law in Asia and the Pacific: A review of laws and policies affecting young people's access to sexual and reproductive health and HIV services

    To date, there has been no systematic review of how laws and policies govern young people's access to sexual and reproductive health and HIV information and services, and the ability of service providers to ensure these services are available and accessible to young people. This review aims to do so for the Asia-Pacific region. It assesses criminal laws, laws in relation to age, laws on health and HIV, law enforcement practices, and national policies related to HIV, SRH and youth. …

  3. Répertoire national des études sur le VIH-SIDA au Togo : 2001-2011

    Au Togo, comme la plupart des pays en Afrique subsaharienne, plusieurs études et enquêtes ont été réalisées afin de documenter plusieurs aspects de l’épidémie du VIH/SIDA (étude de séroprévalence, études comportementales, études portant sur les aspects médicaux et sur les résistances). Ces études ne sont pas toujours accessibles pour les acteurs et institutions engagés dans la lutte contre le SIDA et encore moins pour le grand public. …

  4. Disability and HIV/AIDS - a systematic review of literature on Africa

    This systematic review focuses on empirical work on disability and HIV/AIDS in Africa in the past decade and considers all the literature currently accessible. The review presents data from different surveys and summarizes the findings. In this way, it convincingly reveals that people with disabilities are very vulnerable to contracting HIV, and lack access to information, testing and treatment. The review further reveals gaps in the research and areas of concern. While vulnerability and accessibility have been investigated, there are few prevalence studies or evaluations available. …

  5. Young men who have sex with men: health, access and HIV. Data from the 2012 Global Men's Health and Rights (GMHR) Survey

    In every world region, men who have sex with men (MSM) face significantly higher rates of HIV than the general population. Young people are also at increased risk for HIV, comprising over 40% of new HIV infections worldwide. Young MSM (YMSM) face the heightened risks of both populations, as well as a number of vulnerabilities that are unique to YMSM. Despite the clear need for intervention, YMSM are often left out of research, policy, and programs designed for general MSM, general youth, and the general population. …

  6. Who are we failing? How marginalisation and vulnerability affect adolescents' needs for and access to SRHR

    This report summarises a rapid review carried out by Interact Worldwide and funded by Countdown 2015 Europe. The review addresses the perception that, in the context of SRHR, all adolescents are equally ‘marginalised’ and ‘vulnerable’ due to their age. It explores how such a general assertion neglects the dramatically different situations and experiences of adolescents throughout the world: in reality, not all are equally ‘marginalised’ or ‘vulnerable’. The review asks Who are we failing and why? …

    The primary aim of this analysis is to make a cross section of the present legislation with respect to adolescents' access to health care, services and information related to the protection against HIV infection and other STIs. This document also analyses the practice with respect to the implementation of the present legislation in the territory of B&H. The analysis of legislation is structured according to the administrative division of the country into two entities (the Republika Srpska and the Federation of BiH, which is further divided into 10 Cantons) and the Brcko District. …

  10. Le VIH/SIDA dans le secteur de l'éducation au Mali

    L'approche sectorielle de l'épidémie du VIH /SIDA a amené les acteurs du système éducatif dans différents pays à aborder la question de son incidence sur l'école. L'UNESCO dans le cadre de son programme régional en Afrique a développé de nombreuses interventions. Les jeunes, en particulier les filles et les jeunes femmes âgées de 15 à 24 ans sont les plus vulnérables à l'infection au VIH. Cette tranche d'âge est celle qui constitue également la population scolaire. Elle est en outre le groupe qui doit assurer la relève pour le développement des pays africains. …
