  7. AIDS in Africa: three scenarios to 2025

    This project uses stories rather than projections to explore the future of AIDS in Africa over the next 20 years. Statistics may give a succinct and tragic snapshot of recent events, but they say little of the AIDS epidemic's wider context, or its complex interconnections with other major issues, such as economic development, human security, peace, and violence.

  11. Mainstreaming the policy and programming response to the HIV epidemic

    This paper is a discussion on policy and programming methods and reponses to HIV/AIDS. Drawn from the experiences of UNDP, it has a strong inclination towards the need for multisectoral and multidimensional approaches on the ground level. The need for this is argued by the fact that without the adjustment of developmental parameters through a strengthening of national policy and programming reponses, there will be an intensification of social and economic costs of the epidemic.
