  1. Mobility, migration and HIV vulnerability of populations along the ports of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden: Situation and response analysis

    The relationship between HIV and mobility is widely recognized. While mobility and migration are not risk factors for HIV by themselves, the often harsh, unsafe and isolated conditions surrounding the mobility process can give rise to behaviours strongly associated with increased vulnerability to HIV, while also posing barriers to access to HIV prevention, treatment and care. …

  2. Sudan country case study: child rights

    This report evaluates Norway's and Sweden's aid interventions with regards to the right of the child during the last ten years. Taking the cue from the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) reports, the interventions are timely and filling gaps in the government's own efforts to implement the CRC. The main purpose of this evaluation is to assess both the results of interventions and the processes that lead to outcomes, including the efficacy of the procedures and tools that Norwegian and Swedish aid agencies employ in support of child rights. …

  3. Collaboration between faith-based communities and humanitarian actors when responding to HIV in emergencies

    Faith based communities (FBCs) provide 40% to 50% of healthcare in developing countries (African Religious Health Assets Programme, 2006). One in five organisations working on HIV programmes are faith-based (World Health, 2004). While their role in responding to HIV is recognised, FBCs have unexploited capacity for the delivery of HIV prevention, treatment and care. This is partly because some humanitarian organisations do not value the role of FBCs. Concerns include fears that funds are awarded on the basis of ideology rather than the effective delivery of health services. …

  4. HIV/AIDS in post conflict Sudan: vision, strategies, challenges and plan of action

    The document provides links to different information which describe the magnitude of problems related to HIV/AIDS. It recognises the inadequacy of the national response and the challenges that emerged in the conflict period which need to be seriously considered during the post conflict period.

  5. HIV and AIDS: information and activity book for mentors

    This booklet is an example of life skills based education materials used in emergency situations, especially for children and young people who are vulnerable to sexual abuse and rape. While the materials are intended for an audience aged 10 and above, the core content of the material is universally applicable and the materials can be adapted to a particular situation. It is the HIV and AIDS module of the life skills programme of Southern Sudan. …

  6. HIV and conflict: a double emergency. "Without war, we could fight AIDS"

    In the decade ahead, HIV/AIDS is expected to kill ten times more people than conflict. In conflict situations, children and young people are most at risk from both HIV/AIDS infection and violence. In this report, Save the Children calls on governments, donors and humanitarian agencies to uphold children's rights and to channel resources into preventing what for many young people is already a double emergency.

  7. Migrations forcées et urbanisation : le cas de Khartoum

    In the beginning of the 1980's, drought in the Western Sudan and Civil war in the South precipitated massive migrations towards the capital city and have been instrumental in producing a kind of forced urbanization. The internally displaced people were not welcome by the Government in Khartoum. They were placed on a provisional basis in camps at the periphery of the city. Marginalized and excluded from power, they had to overcome many obstacles before they could settle in Khartoum. The following working paper attempts to draw their social and economical constraints with a demographic perspective.
