This paper profiles some promising approaches to address challenges and barriers identified by adolescents living with HIV (ALHIV). …

  2. National HIV and AIDS communication and advocacy strategy (2011-2015)

    This National HIV and AIDS Communication and Advocacy Strategy (NACAS), seeks to reinforce the efficacy of communication at the different levels of behaviour change, and to increase the proportion of individuals, families, communities and institutions within Zambia utilizing available HIV and AIDS and reproductive health services across the country. Furthermore, it seeks to increase the proportion of national level policy makers and stakeholders knowledgeable of the socio-economic significance of HIV and AIDS. …

  3. National behaviour change communication guidelines on HIV and AIDS interventions

    The Behaviour Change Communication Guideline has been developed to guide HIV and AIDS stakeholders in addressing behavior change in line with National Multisectoral Strategy Framework (NMSF 2008-2012).

  4. Assessment of the psychometric properties of HIV knowledge items across five countries

    HIV knowledge is commonly measured in HIV prevention research and program evaluations, but rigorous measurement standards are not always applied. Using item response theory methods, we examined the psychometric functioning of five commonly used HIV knowledge questions in five countries with varying HIV prevalence. We evaluated the internal consistency and measurement invariance of the items. The items performed poorly in all samples and the scale as a whole did not perform equally across samples. …

  5. Summary of the National behavioural change strategy for preventing sexual transmission of HIV

    In Zimbabwe HIV is mostly transmitted through sexual contact. It is estimated that around 4 in 5 HIV infections in Zimbabwe are due to sexual transmission. HIV is now also found in all groups of people in the population, implying that all sexually active people are at risk of contracting HIV. Hence, promoting safe sexual behaviours has to be at the heart of HIV prevention in all communities of Zimbabwe. This strategy offers guidance on what actions can be taken to promote and sustain safe sexual behaviours.

  6. HIV/AIDS education in Tanzania: survey shows demand for better information

    Despite numerous national campaigns and millions of dollars spent on education and health services, HIV/AIDS prevalence rates in Tanzania remain at epidemic levels. Research has shown that it is important for anti-HIV initiatives to target the country's most vulnerable and high risk populations who contribute disproportionately to the spread of the illness. But what are the best ways for public health professionals to deliver information about HIV prevention to these populations? …

  7. The HIV/AIDS challenge in Mozambique: who is most at risk and how we can get more information to them

    HIV/AIDS is a major threat to the well-being of Mozambicans, not to mention to the country's economic and social development. Mozambique has one of the highest prevalence rates of HIV in the world. Close to 13 percent of the adult population between 15 and 49 is infected. Women, youth and young adults are most at risk. Analysis from AudienceScapes suggests that radio has the most potential for reaching women, youth and young adults. …

  8. Coordination Framework for the National Response to HIV and AIDS

    In 2005, the Government established the National AIDS Commission (NAC) by the NAC Act 2005 along the "Three Ones Principles". NAC is placed outside the Government structure and given more independence and authority to manage the national HIV and AIDS response in conjunction with stakeholders and the authority to mobilise resources outside the Government systems. The establishment of NAC was also necessitated by the increased number of players in the national response, coupled with the substantial increase in the amount of financial support from international funding organisations. …

  9. National HIV/AIDS communication strategy 2005

    The mission of the National AIDS Council (NAC) is to coordinate all HIV/AIDS activities in Zambia. Its mission is to provide national leadership for a co-ordinated multisectoral fight against HIV/AIDS. The need for effective communication cuts across all the objectives in the National Intervention Strategic Plan 2002-2005, NAISP. This communication strategy gives guidance to all stakeholders who wish to carry out communication activities in the area of HIV/AIDS. A key problem in the response to HIV/AIDS to date has been the lack of appropriate information available to the public. …
