  6. ICMH Report: Knowledge, Attitudes, Beliefs and Practices Survey

    The survey grew out of a concern about the impact of rapid social change on life and health in Albania and in particular its possible consequences for HIV/AIDS. The survey used the Knowledge, Attitudes, Beliefs and Practices (KABP) approach developed by Dr Manuel Carballo and colleagues in the WHO Global Programme on AIDS in 1988. Since that time KABP surveys have gone on to be used in a variety of forms in many parts of the world, and have been especially applied to health and health-related behavior

  7. Estimates and Projections of the Impact of HIV/AIDS in Namibia

    The report presents understanding of Namibia's HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as future trends. The projections indicate that a substantial amount of work is needed in responding to the HIV epidemic. The results of the models suggest that estimated adult (ages 15-49) HIV prevalence in 2007/08 was 15.4 percent. Despite stabilizing HIV prevalence, the number of people living with HIV will continue to increase as the total population size in that age range grows. In 2007/08 approximately 204,000 people were living with HIV while in 2012/13 this value is predicted to be 247,000 people.

    In light of the HIV and AIDS situation in the Sub-Saharan Africa, and South Africa in particular, there is an urgent need for governments to roll out the anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs to people living with HIV and AIDS. The South African government is obliged to strengthen its HIV and AIDS interventions for the majority of citizens accessing health services in the public sector. The South African government must as a matter of urgency develop and utilise effective monitoring and evaluating systems to validate the effectiveness and efficiency of its responses to the epidemic. …

USAID commissioned a summary document synthesising the ideas presented by these researchers. …
