    The Joint Action for Results: UNAIDS Outcome Framework, 2009-2011 represents a new and more focused commitment to the HIV response and serves as a platform to move towards UNAIDS' vision of zero new HIV-infections, zero discrimination, and zero AIDS-related deaths. It commits the UNAIDS Secretariat and Cosponsors to leverage their respective organizational mandates and resources to work collectively to deliver results.The Outcome Framework focuses on ten priority areas, each of which represents a pivotal component of the AIDS response. …

  2. An In-Depth Analysis of HIV Prevalence in Ghana: Further Analysis of Demographic and Health Surveys Data

    This report presents findings from a further analysis study undertaken as part of the follow-up to the 2003 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey (GDHS). ORC Macro provided technical assistance for the project. Funding was provided by the USAID.

  3. The Conflict and HIV/AIDS Nexus: An Empirical Assessment

    Within this report, we outline what is generally known about HIV/AIDS and the influence of conflict on the disease. We then discuss the first systematic effort to explore the relationship as well as some limitations with this analysis, prompting the current investigation. Following this, we present our general argument, the data and the research design that we use to explore it. In the next section, we discuss our empirical findings from the global and Rwandan analyses. What do we find? …

  4. 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.

  5. Situation de la lutte contre le VIH au Burundi

    Cette enquête commanditée par le Réseau Burundais des Personnes vivant avec le VIH/SIDA (RBP+) a pour objet l'établissement d'un point sur la situation de la lutte contre le Sida au Burundi du 1er octobre 2007 au 30 novembre 2008. Elle identifie l'ensemble des centres de dépistage volontaire (CDV), dont la répartition est déséquilibrée au profit des centres urbains. Quoi qu'il en soit, la couverture géographique reste critique. La prévention de la transmission de la mère à l'enfant (PTME) est largement déficiente. …

  6. Improving the reproductive health of sub-Saharan Africa's youth: a route to achieve the Millennium Development Goals

    This chartbook aims to provide policymakers, program managers, and the interested public in sub-Saharan Africa and around the world with a better understanding of the needs and experiences of youth in the region and how investments in youth can help achieve the MDGs. The data is drawn primarily from the Demographic and Health Surveys.

  7. A public sector workforce HIV prevalence survey: a researcher's toolkit

    Over time, it has become apparent that the HIV/AIDS epidemic is adversely affecting the South African population. Public servants are responsible for providing services to all sectors of society. In the same way that educators are critical to the schooling of South Africa's youth, health workers are critical to the implementation of a successful public health response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa, and yet public servants may be as susceptible to this epidemic as the general population. …

  8. Demographic and socioeconomic patterns of HIV/AIDS prevalence in Africa

    Understanding the demographic and socioeconomic patterns of the prevalence and incidence of HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa is crucial for developing programs and policies to combat HIV/AIDS. This paper looks critically at the methods and analytical challenges to study the links between socioeconomic and demographic status and HIV/AIDS. Some of the misconceptions about the HIV/AIDS epidemic are discussed and unusual empirical evidence from the existing body of work is presented. Several important messages emerge from the results. …

  9. Zambia HIV prevention response and modes of transmission analysis

    The purpose of this epidemic, response and policy synthesis is to provide an overall analysis of the HIV epidemic and response in Zambia by drawing together, triangulating and reconciling various and different data sources in order to make recommendations as to how the response could be improved. …

  10. Uganda HIV prevention response and modes of transmission analysis

    The authors used the standard Modes of Transmission methodology as described in the UNAIDS/GAMET guidelines. They consulted recent reviews of the epidemiology of HIV in Uganda and reviewed recent available data, applied the UNAIDS incidence model to predict the distribution of new infections, used the MoT prevention review tool to describe the current prevention policies and programs and reviewed the current allocation of resources for HIV prevention. …

  11. Swaziland HIV prevention response and modes of transmission analysis

    NERCHA (National Emergency Response Council on HIV/AIDS), MOHSW (Ministry of Health and Social Welfare), UNAIDS and GAMET/World Bank are collaborating in a capacity development process to support an evidence based review of Swaziland's epidemiological situation (Know Your Epidemic, KYE) and the national HIV prevention response (Know Your Response, KYR). The process for the KYE was an in-depth review of available epidemiological data from Swaziland and the sub-region, and application of the UNAIDS incidence estimation model. …

  12. Kenya HIV prevention response and modes of transmission analysis

    For the study in Kenya, (similar studies in Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland, Uganda, and Zambia) HIV epidemiological data and incidence modelling data (from the UNAIDS Modes of Transmission Model) were analysed together to obtain an epidemiological synthesis (Know Your Epidemic, KYE synthesis), while the HIV prevention review and resources data were analysed together to obtain an HIV response synthesis or "Know Your Response" (KYR) synthesis. …

    Le Cadre Stratégique National de Lutte contre le VIH/SIDA 2009-2013 (CSN 2009-2013) constitue le document d'orientation de la réponse du Congo à l'épidémie du VIH/SIDA pendant les cinq prochaines années.

  15. Enhancing financial literacy, HIV/AIDS skills, and safe social spaces among vulnerable South African youth

    South Africa is disproportionately affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The country has less than one percent of the world's 15-24-year-olds, yet these young people account for approximately 14 percent of all global HIV infections among this age group. Young women are at particular risk among 15-24 year-olds, four times as many females as males are living with HIV (16.9 percent versus 4.4 percent) and girls are becoming infected at much faster rates than boys. …
