  1. 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. …

    This advocacy piece from the International AIDS Society argues that without sufficient treatment coverage, investments in HIV treatment and prevention will have only limited impact. Therefore, maximising coverage is the most sustainable response. By limiting new infections in the next five years, treatment costs that would otherwise continue to accrue for decades can be avoided. The author uses mathematical models to show that the potential of HIV treatment as prevention is high. …

  10. InfoDev : facilitating communications in response to HIV/AIDS in South-East Asia : UNAIDS case study

    Over the last decade developed countries have experienced a transformation in the scope and reach of information technologies and infrastructures. However, this digital revolution has been slow to materialize in developing countries, further marginalizing them and creating a digital divide. Innovative ways must be explored to leverage these new technologies for a range of development opportunities in the HIV/AIDS field from distance learning to bringing basic HIV/AIDS prevention information to patients and practitioners. …

  11. Missing the message? 20 years of learning from HIV/AIDS

    After years of neglect, more money and political interest is being directed towards AIDS than ever before. But is today's response to the pandemic learning from the lessons of the past, lessons now stretching back over 20 years? Large sums of money have been spent on activities aiming to achieve rapid results. Often the results have been disappointing or short lived. This report focuses on the way in which the response to the pandemic has been shaped, with a particular emphasis on the way in which communication has been used. …

  12. Social marketing: expanding access to essential products and services to prevent HIV/AIDS and to limit the impact of the epidemic

In the mid-80s, condom social marketing emerged as an effective tool against the spread of HIV/AIDS. This document defines social marketing, as well as highlighting the three key lessons learned in promoting condom social marketing. The document also discusses UNAIDS' role in social marketing.
