    This annual update provides global and regional estimates of HIV/AIDS and its impact.

  • Ancient Remedies, New Diseaseby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2003; US$ 13.50

    In many African countries, traditional healers far outnumber modern health practitioners, and the majority of the population uses traditional medicine. There has been much scepticism about traditional healers but, as this report shows, they can play a prominent role in caring for people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as in prevention activities. This... more...

  • HIV/AIDS Counselling, Just a Phone Call Awayby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2003; US$ 13.50

    Around the world, telephone helplines have proved to be an accessible, affordable and acceptable source of HIV/AIDS information, counselling and referrals for callers from all walks of life. First initiated in high-income countries, helplines have expanded into many low- and middle-income countries, particularly as the latter improve their telecommunications... more...

  • Reaching Out, Scaling upby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2003; US$ 13.50

    The theme of this report reflects a concern that has become increasingly important in the past few years. All too often, good local-level responses to HIV/AIDS-best practices, in other words-have remained local and small-scale. The many lessons learned have not been translated into bigger projects or wider coverage. This report focuses, therefore,... more...

  • The Private Sector Responds to the Epidemicby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2003; US$ 13.50

    In many respects, Botswana is Africa's success story. It is peaceful, democratic and prosperous. But it also has the worst AIDS epidemic in the world, with an adult prevalence rate estimated at 35.8%. This case study describes the response to this of one of the most important companies in Botswana-the Debswana diamond-mining company. The company started... more...

  • Elaboration de stratégies de programme favorisant l'intégration des activités liées au VIH, à l'alimentation et à la nutrition dans les milieux de réfugiésby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2007; US$ 13.50

    En 2003, le Haut Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les Réfugiés (HCR), le Programme alimentaire mondial des Nations Unies (PAM) et le Fonds des Nations Unies pour l'Enfance (UNICEF) ont lancé une initiative conjointe dans le but d'identifier, à partir de recherches de terrain menées auprès de plusieurs communautés de réfugiés en Afrique, un ensemble... more...

  • Faith-based Response to HIV in Southern Africa (A)by UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2006; US$ 13.50

    This study describes the work of the Choose to Care initiative of the Catholic Church in Southern Africa. It shows that effective scaling up of programmes in the response to HIV, and work towards making universal access a reality, does not necessarily have to be the expansion of a single central service. Through the Choose to Care initiative the Church... more...

  • Global Reach - How Trade Unions are Responding to AIDSby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2006; US$ 13.50

    This Best Practice report shows how the power of working people can be harnessed in the response to AIDS. Eleven case studies from different settings show how trade unions are mounting bold, imaginative responses to HIV in the workplace: challenging stigma and discrimination, addressing the factors that increase vulnerability and risk, educating their... more...

  • High Coverage Sites: HIV Prevention among Injecting Drug Users in Transitional and Developing Countriesby UNAIDS

    World Health Organization 2006; US$ 13.50

    UNAIDS commissioned this report to investigate programmes and sites in low-income and transitional countries which were regarded by international authorities as 'high coverage sites' -that is, where more than 50% of injecting drug users had been reached by one or more HIV-prevention interventions. The most significant finding is that high level coverage... more...

    World Health Organization 2007; US$ 13.50

    Ce rapport sur les meilleures pratiques montre comment on peut exploiter au mieux les atouts des travailleurs au sein de la riposte au SIDA. Onze études de cas provenant d'environnements différents décrivent la manière dont les syndicats mettent en place des ripostes audacieuses et imaginatives au VIH sur les lieux de travail: lutter contre la stigmatisation... more...
