    Early diagnosis of children living with HIV is a prerequisite for accessing timely paediatric HIV care and treatment services and for optimizing treatment outcomes. Testing of HIV-exposed infants at 6 weeks and later is part of the national prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV programme in Zimbabwe, but many opportunities to test infants and children are being missed. …

  6. Getting sensitive. Helping civil society groups gain funding for gender-sensitive HIV programmes. An Exploratory Project in Malawi and Uganda

    In sub-Saharan Africa, home to two-thirds of all people living with HIV, 60% are now women. In some regions, women account for increasing percentages of all infections, especially young women (aged 15 to 24), who are particularly vulnerable. In sub-Saharan Africa, their risk of HIV infection is three to five times higher than that of young men (UNAIDS, 2008). The Exploratory Project was a partnership of GTZ and two established NGOs in Malawi and Uganda. …

  7. The numbers behind the stories: PEPFAR funding for fiscal years 2004 to 2006

    The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the single largest funder of global AIDS relief programs, but it does not regularly release data on how its money is spent. As a result, little evidence has been available to policymakers and other stakeholders to inform policy debates. In this analysis from CGD's HIV/AIDS Monitor team, the authors analyze newly available data--the numbers behind the stories--that can supplement the largely anecdotal and impressionistic information that has been available to date. …

Subraya tanto los éxitos de la Asociación como los retos a los que sigue enfrentándose para apoyar una acción eficaz contra el SIDA en la totalidad de sus 29 países. …

  9. A study of the Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP): Common goals, shared responses

    The Caribbean region has the second highest prevalence of HIV infection in the world after sub-Saharan Africa. Extensive population mobility and the very limited capacity of many Caribbean countries to respond to AIDS, combined with a realization that AIDS seriously threatens the economic and social well being of the region, led national and regional partners to join with international organizations in the Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS (PANCAP). …
