  1. HIV and AIDS in China: The emerging response from UK based international development NGOs

    It is now recognised that China stands on the brink of a humanitarian disaster due to HIV, with over one million already infected and UN estimates that this will exceed ten million by 2010. Over one-fifth of the world's population live in China, which is undergoing rapid social change with liberalisation of the economy. There is currently a mass migration of men to meet the needs of economic growth. It is in this environment that sexual risk and injecting drug use behaviours flourish, and HIV spreads. …

  2. Communities facing the HIV/AIDS challenge: From crisis to opportunity, from community vulnerability to community resilience

    Rural households are managing as best they can in a rapidly changing and often threatening world which makes them vulnerable to the risk of HIV infection and ill-equipped to cope with the effects of AIDS. Their chances of managing can be improved if they function in a supportive environment. …

  3. China's HIV Crisis

    Although, China enjoys growing wealth, increasing per capita incomes, and rising living standards, it also suffers from environmental degradation and a host of social ills including political unrest, increased crime, and a fraying social safety net. China, like other developing nations, faces tough choices between the benefits and the costs of modernity.Unfortunately for China, however, the very nature of its particular political, social, and economic systems exacerbates the dangers of opening up. …

  4. 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. …

  5. Buckling. The impact of AIDS in South Africa 2005

    The Introduction of Buckling positions South Africa's epidemic and its anticipated impact in a wider historical and ideological context. Chapter Two ('Gauging the epidemic') examines the epidemiological evidence and the controversies surrounding it. Chapter Three ('Ground Zero') reviews and critiques the customary narratives of AIDS impact on households, of orphan-hood and of home-based care, and shows how the epidemic is accentuating and hardening some of the most grievous features of society. …

  6. Des infirmières face au SIDA : impact de l'épidémie sur les rôles professionnels dans un service de pédiatrie du Burkina Faso

    Les paramédicaux n'échappent pas aux divers aspects de l'épidémie du VIH, ni à son emprise directe sur la population et aux bouleversements du fonctionnement des institutions sanitaires dans lesquelles ils travaillent. …

  7. Confronting AIDS: public priorities in a global epidemic: summary

    This is a summary of "Confronting AIDS : Public Priorities in a Global Epidemic". It includes a foreword, introduction and table of contents. It argues that the AIDS epidemic can be overcome if national governments, NGOs and other groups in civil society, and the international community are involved in prevention, care and research.

  8. 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.

  9. Community Participation in Health Care: The Turkish Case

    World Health Organization's global goal of Health for All by the Year 2000 (HFA) and achievement of this laudable goal through the Primary Health Care (PHC) approach has been accepted unanimously by participant countries of the Alma-Ata Conference in 1978 of which, Turkey is included. However, the approval did not generate as much interest among the policy makers until the 1990s. The year 1990 saw the commencement of attempts to produce a National Health Policy document that centred on the global goal for HFA and PHC in Turkey. …
