  5. HIV and emergencies: one size does not fit all

    The dynamics and impact of HIV in humanitarian crises are complex. They depend on the kind of crisis: is it the result of conflict, a rapid-onset natural disaster (such as a flood or cyclone), or a slow-onset emergency caused by drought or environmental degradation? It also depends on the HIV prevalence rate before the crisis, the political situation, the scale and duration of the crisis, the existing infrastructure and services and the level of awareness of HIV. Case studies from five countries facing very different emergencies and HIV prevalence rates were backed by a literature review. …

    Although HIV can strike anyone, it is not an equal opportunity virus. Gender inequality, poverty, lack of education and inadequate access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services continue to fuel the epidemic. This booklet will detail how and why prevention works. By applying the principles of prevention to diverse populations around the world, the global community can help slow, and possibly halt, what is proving to be one of the greatest health challenges of our time. …

  7. Make it matter. 10 key advocacy messages to prevent HIV in girls and young women

    The aim of this guide is to equip its users with key messages, evidence and actions that can be used to advocate effectively on HIV prevention for girls and young women. It recognizes that advocacy needs to be adapted to each country using the methods and channels that work best in a specific context. It also, however, recognizes that any national advocacy work will be most successful if it follows some basic guiding principles.

  8. Improving sexual behaviors among high-risk youth : encouraging condoms and dual protection

    Working through non-traditional providers, PRIME II built on a successful STI/HIV prevention project in the Philippines to improve contraceptive use among youth engaging in high-risk behaviours. Youth exposed to the intervention were significantly more likely to report using condoms and other contraceptive methods during high-risk behaviours than those who were not exposed.

  11. HIV/AIDS, children and adolescents

    The factsheet briefly describes the HIV/AIDS pandemic, mother-to-child transmission, and explains why girls and young women are particularly vulnerable to HIV infection. Key actions in addressing the HIV/AIDS pandemic and statements of international commitments presented at the ICPD Plus Five, 1999 and Beijing Plus Five 2000 are also included. The fact sheet can be used as advocacy tools for anyone working in the area of young people's sexual and reproductive health.

Trained peer educators, parent-elder educators and health providers act as channels to deliver SRH and FLE services to the youth, as well as to mobilize and sensitize the wider community. …
