    The WHO School Health Technical Meeting was held in Bangkok on 23–25 November 2015 to consolidate what had been learned from regions and countries since the last WHO Technical Meeting on School Health in 2007 and to renew commitments and scale-up of the institutional capacity of the health and education sectors to achieve health and educational outcomes especially low-resource settings. More than 60 experts from a wide variety of geographical and professional backgrounds participated in the meeting. …

  2. HIV and human rights: A mapping of donor priorities and trends in southern Africa

    Donors at every level are retreating on funding commitments to HIV, and organizations working at the intersection of AIDS and rights are facing overall funding challenges. This briefing paper reports the findings of a 2012 study on HIV and human rights donor trends in Southern Africa, commissioned by the Open Society Foundations. It identifies opportunities to leverage donor support for HIV and human rights organizations, and for donor collaboration that can support them in the current funding environment.

  3. Community interventions supporting children affected by HIV in sub-Saharan Africa: a review to derive evidence-based principles for programming

    Approaching 20 years after the first studies drew attention to the issues faced by children and families affected by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), evaluation data from programs addressing their circumstances remains limited and clustered, especially when considered in relation to the magnitude of donor spending. A review of evaluation evidence was conducted to derive programming principles for interventions supporting HIV-affected children in sub-Saharan Africa, including care and support, cash transfer and HIV-prevention interventions. …

  4. Zambia national AIDS spending assessment for 2005 and 2006

    In recent years, Zambia has seen a dramatic increase in financial resources dedicated to HIV and AIDS activities. Despite this rapid escalation in HIV/AIDS funds, or perhaps because of it, it has become increasingly challenging to track sources of funding and spending patterns across the multiple public and non-government stakeholders. Without a good understanding of such funding flows, it has become difficult to assess where there are gaps in resources relative to Zambia's needs, and whether some areas are receiving too little or too much funding. …

  7. Will We End the HIV Epidemic? The Impact of HIV Treatment on HIV Prevention and Implications for the 2010 Replenishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria

    This advocacy piece from the International AIDS Society argues that without sufficient treatment coverage, investments in HIV treatment and prevention will have only limited impact. Therefore, maximising coverage is the most sustainable response. By limiting new infections in the next five years, treatment costs that would otherwise continue to accrue for decades can be avoided. The author uses mathematical models to show that the potential of HIV treatment as prevention is high. …

  8. National HIV/AIDS policy review report: report of desk review and stakeholders' interaction

    The purpose of the national policy review is to enable the Federal Government and its key partners to address the following: highlight success stories of the Policy implementation as well as challenges encountered while providing priority recommendations; examine the Policy with a view to determine its appropriateness and adequacy in addressing all HIV/AIDS related Policy issues; determine if the Policy requires updating vis-a-vis emerging issues; determine the gender appropriateness of the Policy; address the recurring issues around the inadequate dissemination of the first document.

    In 2008, the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) in collaboration with Action Health Incorporated (AHI) commissioned an assessment of the national response to young people sexual and reproductive health in Nigeria. The assessment was conducted in two phases; a desk review and a field assessment. The findings from the desk review guided the design and conduct of the field assessment in six states (one per geopolitical zone) and FCT. The overall goal of the assessment was to optimize the health and development of young people in Nigeria. …

    This report documents the findings of a study on the quality and effectiveness of collaboration among partners involved in the HIV and AIDS response in the education sector. The purpose of this study was to document how external partners coordinate and harmonise their efforts at the country level, to identify areas of overlap and significant gaps in country responses, and to formulate recommendations for improving synergy and alignment across IATT member agencies and other actors operating at the country level. …

  11. 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. …
