  8. A response to HIV and AIDS. Examples of successful HIV prevention in Eastern Europe, South-East Europe and Central Asia

    HIV is a threat to development, especially in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. German development policy is active in this region to find a joint response to HIV and AIDS and to contain the epidemic. Some of its most successful approaches are presented in this report. The main difference between HIV epidemics in Eastern Europe and those in Africa, Western Europe and North America is in the transmission routes that are most common, i.e. via sexual transmission or via shared use of non-sterile injecting equipment. Another difference is the particular vulnerability of certain social groups. …

  11. The HIV Epidemic in Yunnan Province, China, 1989-2007

    The article aims to investigate the characteristics and trends in the HIV epidemic in Yunnan Province, China, between 1989 and 2007.

  12. Technical strategy for prevention and control of sexually transmitted infections

    STIs are important cofactors that facilitate HIV transmission. In countries like Bhutan with low HIV prevalence, a focus on controlling STIs can be an effective strategy for reinforcing prevention and ensuring that conditions remain unfavourable for HIV. STIs are also sensitive markers of sexual transmission. If STI trends are declining, it is likely that prevention programmes are working. If, however, STIs remain high or are increasing, it is likely that prevention programmes are weak, and HIV may also spread rapidly once introduced into the population. …
