Social Protection: A Fast-Track Commitment to End AIDS — Guidance for Policy-makers, and People Living with, At Risk of or Affected by HIV. UNAIDS. (2018)

immage

Although much has been written on HIV-sensitive social protection, there is insufficient guidance on how to bring to scale what works in the context of different HIV epidemics and for different populations. This document seeks to fill this gap. It provides guidance to governments, people living with, at risk of or affected by HIV, policy-makers, and other stakeholders on how to intensify the integration of HIV with social protection and other programmes for ending poverty and inequality towards ending AIDS. It summarizes relevant evidence on social protection, including cash transfers, and on how social protection contributes to the AIDS response. It presents a brief account of the status of progress of Member States in meeting the HIV and social protection target of the 2016 Political Declaration on AIDS. It provides guidance for leveraging and scaling up social protection—in particular, social safety nets, financial incentives and social services—towards achieving the goal of ending AIDS. It does not focus on social security and labour market polices.

Women and Girls and HIV. UNAIDS. (2018)

immage

We cannot stand by and allow the quality of life of women and girls to be held back and their hopes and dreams for the future to slip away. We must work collectively to close the gaps that continue to leave women and girls behind. Ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 depends on advancing a social justice agenda that demands access to education, employment, health services, justice and political representation, free from discrimination and violence.

Every Child Alive: The Urgent Need to End Newborn Deaths. UNICEF. (2018)

immage

Deaths among children aged 1 month to 5 years old have fallen dramatically in recent decades. But progress in reducing the deaths of newborn babies – those aged less than 1 month – has been less impressive, with 7,000 newborns still dying every day. This is partly because newborn deaths are difficult to address with a single drug or intervention – they require a system-wide approach. It is also due to a lack of momentum and global commitment to newborn survival. We are failing the youngest, most vulnerable people on the planet – and with so many millions of lives at stake, time is of the essence.
