CONFERENCES/ EVENTS/ RESEARCH/ RESOURCES:
PlusNews Weekly Issue 215, 7 January 2005


1. Youth InfoNet/Family Health International Resources: HIV/AIDS Prevention and Reproductive Health

YouthNet, a global USAID-funded programme for young people, and Family Health International provide a summary of 23 new programme resources on reproductive health and HIV/AIDS prevention for young people, in their December 2004 issue of Youth InfoNet.

The resources cover a range of issues, including orphans and vulnerable children, child marriage, sex education, HIV prevention issues and post-abortion care.

Access the resources: www.fhi.org


2. Barriers to Better Care for People with AIDS in Developing Countries

This British Medical Journal article examines the challenges faced in the World Health Organisation's (WHO) '3 by 5' initiative, which aims to deliver antiretrovirals (ARVs) to 3 million people by 2005.

It highlights that the focus on delivering ARVs distracts resources and attention from a broader model of healthcare and argues that the initiative must develop a chronic disease model of care through strengthened public health infrastructure.

The authors also point out the exclusionary power of stigma and outline the need for training programmes in medical ethics and human rights for healthcare workers.

3. Antiretroviral Adherence Training Manual

Developed by the Horizons Programme/Population Council, the International Centre for Reproductive Health, and the Coast Province General Hospital for the Antiretroviral Therapy Programme in Mombasa, Kenya, the 'Adherence to Antiretroviral Therapy in Adults: A Guide for Trainers' manual was specifically designed for health workers, including physicians, clinical officers and adherence nurse counsellors, who work in antiretroviral therapy programmes and have received some training on the relevant medications.

It keeps in mind field realities and the sociocultural environment of Mombasa, a coastal province in Kenya.

Access the manual online: www.popcouncil.org pdf Format
