  5. Political Breakthrough: Mobilizing Accelerated Action to End Violence Against Women and Girls by 2015

    While violence against women and girls (VAW/G) is a factor in all the MDGs, it is linked particularly closely with HIV/AIDS, as both a cause and a consequence of the pandemic.

  6. 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

The author uses mathematical models to show that the potential of HIV treatment as prevention is high. …

  9. Parliamentary Handbook on HIV and AIDS

    This handbook will reinforce the work of the Cambodia National Assembly and Senate in response to the epidemic, in which they have been engaged since 2006 with the support of UNAIDS and UNDP. Unlike any other contemporary pandemic, HIV and AIDS cannot be seen as merely a health concern for a population.

Without this recognition Cambodia may see the successes of the past quickly erode. …
