  1. HIV and AIDS mainstreaming guideline for sector responses

    The involvement of non-health sectors in national HIV and AIDS strategies is appropriate to address the causes, drivers and effects of HIV. However, HIV and AIDS sector responses with the full participation of stakeholders have remained a challenge in Namibia. Most sectors are largely unclear about the context of sector responses and their institutional and coordination structures. …

  2. Step up the pace: towards an AIDS-free generation in West and Central Africa

    The West and Central Africa region has one of the world’s highest HIV burdens among children and adolescents, second only to that of Eastern and Southern Africa. Yet, due to its lower HIV prevalence rate, the epidemic has received less attention than in other regions. …

  3. HIV/AIDS national strategic plans of Sub-Saharan African countries: an analysis for gender equality and sex-disaggregated HIV targets

    National Strategic Plans (NSPs) for HIV/AIDS are country planning documents that set priorities for programmes and services, including a set of targets to quantify progress toward national and international goals. The inclusion of sex- disaggregated targets and targets to combat gender inequality is important given the high disease burden among young women and adolescent girls in Sub-Saharan Africa, yet no comprehensive gender-focused analysis of NSP targets has been performed. …

  4. 2016 high-level meeting on ending AIDS: fast-track to ending AIDS

    To end the AIDS epidemic by 2030 will require countries to take a Fast- Track approach over the next five years. To ensure that global efforts are accelerated in this short window, the President of the United Nations General Assembly is convening a High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS from 8 to 10 June 2016 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. At this meeting United Nations Member States will come together to draft a new Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS. …

    The purpose of this report is to describe experiences and lessons learned from governance of HIV responses in Asia and the Pacific to inform discussions and debates regarding the post-2015 development agenda. Chapter 1 includes: an overview of progress towards achievement of the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) and HIV epidemic trends and in Asia and the Pacific; key features of democratic governance incorporated into HIV responses in Asia and the Pacific; and ongoing governance challenges for HIV responses in the region. …

  6. Integrating strategies to address gender-based violence and engage men and boys to advance gender equality through National Strategic Plans on HIV and AIDS: Meeting Summary

    National strategies and plans – focusing on HIV and beyond – are key platforms for articulating an HIV response that advances gender equality, champions women’s rights, engages men and boys, and ends GBV as a cause and consequence of HIV. As such, the Johannesburg December 2012 meeting supported delegations from six countries to review their current national policies, strategies, and plans, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of these plans with regard to addressing GBV and engaging men and boys for gender equality. …

  7. Sexual minorities and HIV: Germany's response to the issue through development cooperation

    This leaflet describes Germany's response to sexual minorities and HIV and provides examples of programmes being implemented.

  8. Timor-Leste Strategic Develpment Plan 2011-2030

    This Strategic Development Plan aims to develop core infrastructure, human resources, and to encourage the growth of private sector jobs in strategic industry sectors - a broad based agricuture sector, a thriving tourism industry and downstream industries in the oil and gas sector. It is an integrated package of strategic policies to be implemented in the short term (one to five years), in the medium term (five to ten years) and in the long term (ten to 20 years). …

  9. Mainstreaming HIV in practice: a toolkit with a collection of resources, checklists and examples on CD Rom for SDC and its partners

    For the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), contributing to the international AIDS response continues to be a priority and mainstreaming of HIV should be understood as a shared responsibility in all, or much, of cooperation work.SDC promotes strategies and approaches that are adapted to the local context and epidemiological scenario. It is essential to use a culturally, and gender sensitive and appropriate approach when responding to the epidemic. …

  10. HIV/AIDS and the health-related Millennium Development Goals: the experience in Ethiopia

    Ethiopia’s AIDS response is distinguished by its ‘integrated health system strengthening approach’ to expanding health service delivery. This approach is believed to have contributed to the significant strides the country has made towards the health MDGs. At the global level, in a drive to maximize efficiencies and demonstrate the impact of the substantial investments made in health over the last decade, there has been growing literature examining the positive bi-directional linkages between the response to AIDS and the MDGs. …

  11. Political declaration on HIV/AIDS: Intensifying our efforst to eliminate HIV/AIDS

    Implementation of the Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS and the Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS.

  12. Key findings from the Swaziland HIV prevention information needs assessment

    The Southern African HIV/AIDS Information Dissemination Service (SAfAIDS), with support from the Knowledge for Health (K4Health) project, conducted a series of national HIV information needs assessments in southern Africa to support the planning and development of a knowledge management program. This program aims to increase the dissemination and use of accurate, evidence-based, and up-to-date information in order to improve HIV prevention in the region. …

  13. HIV/AIDS and conflicts: micro evidence from Burundi

    This paper studies the relationship between civil war and HIV/AIDS in Burundi. It contributes to the empirical literature by providing micro level evidence using an identication strategy based on original data on the dynamics of rebel movements. The presence of exit and entry points from and to rebel safe havens is used to generate exogenous variation in con ict intensity. These points are plausibly assumed to serve as starting or end points for rebel attack, but are not directly related to HIV/AIDS or correlated with unobservables. …

  14. AIDS is Money: how donor preferences reconfigure local realities

    There is growing concern that the global response to AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa is compromising the region's human development more broadly. Through a case study of Malawi, I examine the impact of AIDS prioritization by international donors on the country's NGOs and analyze why AIDS wields such influence on development work. In the last 20 years the Malawian NGO sector has evolved to favor AIDS above all else. AIDS has come to possess prestige and legitimacy that other development sectors are denied. …

  15. Resource needs for an expanded HIV response: HIV costing and modeling tools

    The Resource Needs Model (RNM) is an Excel-based tool used to calculate the total resources needed at national and decentralized levels for HIV-related prevention and care, as well as support for orphans and vulnerable children. The RNM can help inform national- and district-level budgeting and strategic planning efforts; it estimates: the resources needed for interventions that aim to achieve expected coverage of a particular population using default unit costs; and resource implications of extending interventions and coverage and introducing unit cost changes.
