  1. HIV/AIDS and conflicts: micro evidence from Burundi

    This paper studies the relationship between civil war and HIV/AIDS in Burundi. It contributes to the empirical literature by providing micro level evidence using an identication strategy based on original data on the dynamics of rebel movements. The presence of exit and entry points from and to rebel safe havens is used to generate exogenous variation in con ict intensity. These points are plausibly assumed to serve as starting or end points for rebel attack, but are not directly related to HIV/AIDS or correlated with unobservables. …

  3. Development and disasters in a time of HIV and AIDS: an HIV mainstreaming toolkit for development and humanitarian response workers

    This toolkit provides a practical guide to the work of HIV mainstreaming.

  4. World disasters report 2008: focus on HIV and AIDS

    The AIDS epidemic is a disaster on many levels. In the most affected countries in sub-Saharan Africa, where prevalence rates reach 20 per cent, development gains are reversed and life expectancy may be halved. For specific groups of marginalized people - injecting drug users, sex workers and men who have sex with men - across the world, HIV rates are on the increase. Yet they often face stigma, criminalization and little, if any, access to HIV prevention and treatment services. …

  7. Great Lakes Initiative on AIDS (GLIA): Towards Regional Integration in Prevention and Management of Disasters

    Although HIV/AIDS pandemic is a global disaster, countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Great Lakes Countries in particular have been disproportionately burdened in various ways. In the last decade, countries in the Great Lakes Region were considered the epicenter of the epidemic because of the high prevalence rates and the socio-economic impact on the populations. During this period the Great Lakes Region also faced unbearable years of turmoil, war and armed conflict across borders. …
