  5. National human development report 2006 : Lesotho. The challenges of HIV and AIDS, poverty and food insecurity

    This Report discusses the state of human development in Lesotho at the turn of this new millennium. Almost seven years into this century, Lesotho has been faced with a combination of problems that do not seem to be amenable to easy solution, and that threaten to hold back, even reverse, its socio -economic progress. The nexus of the mutually reinforcing effects of chronic poverty, inequality and food insecurity is being compounded by the impact of the pervasive and growing HIV epidemic.

  6. Mozambique National Human Development Report 2007. Challenges and opportunities: the response to HIV and AIDS

    This is the sixth NHDR produced since 1998. The theme of the 2007 edition is the HIV and AIDS pandemic. The report looks carefully at general status of HIV and AIDS in Mozambique, its different facets and causes, its historical evolution, how it is regarded by society and its potential impact on the public and private sectors. The report finds that HIV and AIDS are exacerbating the problems of poverty, malnutrition, low educational levels and gender disparities, thus threatening the attainment of the MDGs as well as slowing growth and development.

  7. From words to action. Support for young children challenged by poverty and AIDS

    In recent years, a consensus has developed among international NGOs and UN agencies working to support children affected by HIV and AIDS, with general agreement around key principles and priorities.

The review employs an historical perspective in grappling with these issues, and argues that the effects of HIV/AIDS and those of food insecurity are best understood when one takes into account the specifics of the historical development of South Africa's political economy and especially the development of the agricultural sector. …

  9. Guidelines for HIV/AIDS Interventions in Emergency Settings

    The purpose of these guidelines is to enable governments and cooperating agencies, including UN Agencies and NGOs, to deliver the minimum required multisectoral response to HIV/AIDS during the early phase of emergency situations. These guidelines, focusing on the early phase of an emergency, should not prevent organizations from integrating such activities in their preparedness planning. As a general rule, this response should be integrated into existing plans and the use of local resources should be encouraged. …
