    The National HIV Risk Reduction Strategy for Most At Risk & Especially Vulnerable Adolescents to HIV & AIDS in Bangladesh (2013-2015) was informed by the result of the Mapping and Size Estimation of Most At Risk Adolescents in Bangladesh conducted in 2011 with support from UNICEF. This strategy emphasizes key actions to improve legislation, policy and programmes to reduce risk and protect MARA/EVA in Bangladesh from HIV and AIDS. …

  2. Capacity development matters: a practical guide

    This booklet is a practical guide on what capacity development is and how we are applying it in UNFPA. The first chapter provides an overview of capacity development and some basic definitions; the second highlights examples of practice in action from the field; and the third consists of a series of tools and resources that we have considered useful when developing and implementing capacity development programmes. This guide is primarily meant for UNFPA technical and programme staff but may also serve other United Nations (UN) agencies, partner organizations and Member States.

  3. 3rd national strategic plan for HIV and AIDS response 2011-2015

    Bangladesh responded early and decisively to the potential threat of HIV. In the period since the adoption of the first national strategy in 1985, services have been established and scaled up, particularly for Most At Risk Populations (MARPs). Most female sex workers and People Who Inject Drugs (PWID)) are in contact with services. Among developing countries, Bangladesh (based on recent population size estimations) has achieved among the highest level of needle/syringe distribution per PWID among developing countries in the world. …

  4. Bangladesh HIV/AIDS communication challenges and strategies

    Bangladesh is in a precarious position in relation to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Rates are currently low compared to the rest of the South Asian region, and the disease is relatively confined to small, high-risk populations -mainly injection drug users (IDUs) and commercial sex workers. Yet if steps are not taken quickly to keep the epidemic in check, it could easily spread to the general population as it has in other countries nearby. This would both increase the negative impact of HIV/AIDS and make it much harder to target for containment. …

  5. HIV/AIDS interventions in Bangladesh: What can application of a social exclusion framework tell us?

    Bangladesh has maintained a low HIV prevalence (of less than 1%) despite multiple risk factors. However, recent serological surveillance data have reported very high levels of HIV infection among a subgroup of male injecting drug-users (IDUs). This suggests that an HIV/AIDS epidemic could be imminent in Bangladesh. Although biomedical and behavioural change projects are important, they do not address the root causes of observed risky behaviours among high-risk groups. …

  6. Twenty years of HIV in Bangladesh: experiences and way forward

    The report describes the scope and the coverage of interventions delivered, and the institutions involved in the response to HIV and AIDS in Bangladesh as well as analyses the trend of the epidemic and impact of the prevention programs. This work concludes that despite Bangladesh's vulnerability to HIV, one of the reasons for low prevalence in Bangladesh is the early and sustained implementation of HIV programs targeted to the most at risk populations - informed by data from regular surveillance and behavioral surveys. A state-of-the-art surveillance system has been in place since 1998. …

  8. National AIDS monitoring and evaluation framework and operational plan, 2006-2010: Bangladesh

    The overall goal of the national monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework is to guide the gathering of strategic information needed to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of responses to the epidemic as well as ensuring accountability of all partners who are contributing to the national AIDS response. The specific objectives are: 1. To provide a common understanding on the priorities of a national M&E system, 2. To ensure greater transparency, effective coordination and good communication among all stakeholders involved in the national response, 3. …

  9. Bangladesh demographic and health survey 2004

ORC Macro provided financial and technical assistance for the survey through the financial aid provided by USAID/Bangladesh. …

  10. Walking the talk: putting women's rights at the heart of the HIV and AIDS response

    Using research from 13 countries, this report demonstrates that gender inequalities and the persistent and systematic violation of their rights are leaving women and girls disproportionately vulnerable to HIV and AIDS. Poverty and limited access to education and information, discriminatory laws and ingrained gender inequalities all deny women and girls their rights. …

  11. Strategic Plan of the National AIDS Programme of Bangladesh 1997-2002
