Antibacterial Agents in Clinical Development: An Analysis of the Antibacterial Clinical Development Pipeline, Including Tuberculosis. WHO. (2017)

immage

The report – “Antibacterial agents in clinical development – an analysis of the antibacterial clinical development pipeline, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis” – shows a serious lack of new antibiotics under development to combat the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. Most of the drugs currently in the clinical pipeline are modifications of existing classes of antibiotics and are only short-term solutions. The report found very few potential treatment options for those antibiotic-resistant infections identified by WHO as posing the greatest threat to health, including drug-resistant tuberculosis which kills around 250 000 people each year. In addition to multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, WHO has identified 12 classes of priority pathogens – some of them causing common infections such as pneumonia or urinary tract infections – that are increasingly resistant to existing antibiotics and urgently in need of new treatments.

Guidelines on Prevention and Management of TB in PLHIV at ART Centres. National AIDS Control Organisation and Central TB Division. (2016)

image

In order to ensure that all the ART centres adhere to standard practices, the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) and the Central TB Division (CTD) have prepared comprehensive guidelines for prevention and management of TB at ART centres. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - Division of Global Health and TB (CDC-DGHT) India, SHARE India, and WHO India have provided technical supp01i in development of the guidelines. These guidelines describe the operational processes at ART centres in providing single window services to PLHIV and coordination mechanism between ART centres and RNTCP. This document has been designed with the intent to orient and equip ART centre staff on the guidelines and processes to identity TB in PLHIV, initiate early ART/ATT, and implement IPT and AIC activities to reduce the burden of TB. This document is also intended to provide guidance to the managerial staff of NACP and RNTCP for better coordination and smooth implementation of this initiative.

Casting Light on Old Shadows: Ending Sexually Transmitted Infection Epidemics as Public Health Concerns by 2030: Advocacy Brief. WHO. (2017)

Countries can boost the response to STIs and improve the health of millions of women, men and adolescents by adopting WHO’s Global STI Strategy. Some viral STIs, like human papillomavirus (HPV) and HIV, are still incurable and can be deadly, while some bacterial STIs – like chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and trichomoniasis – are curable if detected and treated.

Sexual Health and its Linkages to Reproductive Health: An Operational Approach. WHO. (2017)

immage

Sexual health and reproductive health are closely linked, but crucial aspects of sexual health can be overlooked when grouped under or together with the domain of reproductive health. In order to create broader awareness of comprehensive sexual health interventions and to ensure that sexual health and reproductive health both receive full attention in programming (including provision of health services) and research, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reviewed its working definition of sexual health to create a framework for an operational approach to sexual health. The framework, which is intended to support policy-makers and programme implementers and to provide a stronger foundation for further research and learning in sexual health, is presented and described in full in this brief.

Tuberculosis Control in Migrant Populations: Guiding Principles and Proposed Actions. WHO. (2016)

immage

MDR-TB is essentially a human-made problem that develops because of low-quality drugs and/or inadequate treatment regimens, and it is difficult and expensive to treat. The development of migrant-sensitive TB control policies is especially critical given the high mobility of migrants—which increases the likelihood of transmission and treatment default, their lack of access to health-care services, their often dire living conditions and their propensity to inadequately self-treat in the private sector. In formulating such policies, however, policy-makers should note that TB is primarily transmitted within migrant communities, with very limited evidence of transmission from migrant groups into host country populations.

Women and Girls. UNAIDS. (2016)

The rights of women and girls also means eliminating discrimination and abuse in the health sector, where women and girls, including women living with HIV, have reported violations of their rights, such as forced and coerced sterilization and abortion. It also means ensuring access to prevention, treatment and care throughout their lives.
