  1. The Sustainable Development Goals and LGBT inclusion

    This paper is a response to the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals, an agreement by 193 countries at the United Nations to end poverty and inequality by 2030. The SDGs were agreed in September, on the basis that they would include everyone, without discrimination, and would ‘leave no one behind’. According to Stonewall, the SDGs could have gone further by explicitly calling for LGBT equality. This guide demonstrates some of the ways LGBT equality can be achieved. It looks at seven of the 17 goals and highlights the challenges LGBT people face. …

    CARE travaille dans les pays les plus touchés par le VIH et le sida. Dans 25 pays, ses efforts pour combattre les nombreux effets de la maladie se concrétisent par des projets consacrés spécifiquement à la lutte contre le VIH/sida.

  4. AIDS is Money: how donor preferences reconfigure local realities

    There is growing concern that the global response to AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa is compromising the region's human development more broadly. Through a case study of Malawi, I examine the impact of AIDS prioritization by international donors on the country's NGOs and analyze why AIDS wields such influence on development work. In the last 20 years the Malawian NGO sector has evolved to favor AIDS above all else. AIDS has come to possess prestige and legitimacy that other development sectors are denied. …

  5. Resource needs for an expanded HIV response: HIV costing and modeling tools

    The Resource Needs Model (RNM) is an Excel-based tool used to calculate the total resources needed at national and decentralized levels for HIV-related prevention and care, as well as support for orphans and vulnerable children. The RNM can help inform national- and district-level budgeting and strategic planning efforts; it estimates: the resources needed for interventions that aim to achieve expected coverage of a particular population using default unit costs; and resource implications of extending interventions and coverage and introducing unit cost changes.

  8. Proposing a funding plan for universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care by 2010

    Two years on from the commitment by world leaders to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment and care by 2010, the global response to HIV and AIDS remains woefully under funded. In 2007 for example, a comprehensive response to HIV and AIDS in low- and middle-income countries requires an estimated US$18.1 billion, increasing to US$23 billion in 2010. UNAIDS estimate the funding gap to be US$8.1 billion in 2007 and at least US$10 billion per annum between 2008 and 2010. …
