  2. AIDS in Africa: three scenarios to 2025

    This project uses stories rather than projections to explore the future of AIDS in Africa over the next 20 years. Statistics may give a succinct and tragic snapshot of recent events, but they say little of the AIDS epidemic's wider context, or its complex interconnections with other major issues, such as economic development, human security, peace, and violence. Statistics can only hint at the future. Indeed, by 2025, no one under the age of 50 in Africa will be able to remember a world without AIDS.The book is rich and detailed-reflecting the complexity of its subject matter. …

  6. Intensifying action against HIV/AIDS in Africa: responding to a development crisis

    Nowhere has the impact of HIV/AIDS been more severe than Sub-Saharan Africa. The costs it imposes force countries to make heartbreaking choices between today's and future lives, and between health and dozens of other vital investments for development.

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

  13. Mainstreaming the policy and programming response to the HIV epidemic

    This paper is a discussion on policy and programming methods and reponses to HIV/AIDS. Drawn from the experiences of UNDP, it has a strong inclination towards the need for multisectoral and multidimensional approaches on the ground level. The need for this is argued by the fact that without the adjustment of developmental parameters through a strengthening of national policy and programming reponses, there will be an intensification of social and economic costs of the epidemic.
