Progress towards United Nations Security Council Resolution 1983 in Asia and the Pacific. Homans H. (2013)

immage

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1983 was adopted in June 2011 just before the United Nations (UN) General Assembly High Level Meeting (HLM) agreed the Political Declaration: Intensifying Our Efforts To Eliminate HI and AIDS including ten global targets to achieve by 2015 (“HLM targets”). Together, the HLM targets and UNSC Resolution 1983 provide an opportunity to scale up universal access to HIV and AIDS related services for all uniformed service personnel1 and their family members and for people living with HIV and the key populations at higher risk of HIV with whom uniformed services personnel interact. In Asia and the Pacific, key populations include sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, transgender people, migrants and mobile populations, prisoners, internally and externally displaced people due to humanitarian situations and those at risk of sexual violence.

Cambodia Behavioral Surveillance Surveys: 1997-1999. National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STDs Cambodia (2008)

Cambodia Behavioral Surveillance Surveys: 1997-1999. National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STDs Cambodia (2008) FHI's Behavioral Surveillance Surveys (BSS) provide valuable data about HIV/AIDS-related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. The BSS methodology is a monitoring and evaluation tool designed to track trends in HIV/AIDS-related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors in subpopulations at particular risk of HIV infection, such as female sex workers, injection drug users, migrant men, and youth. Based on classic HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) serologic surveillance methods, BSS consist of repeated cross- sectional surveys conducted systematically to monitor changes in HIV/STI risk behaviors.

Cambodia 2007 Behavioral Surveillance Survey: HIV/AIDS Related Sexual Behaviors among Sentinel Groups. National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STDs Cambodia , FHI and USAID (2007) Behavioral Sentinel Surveys have been carried out by the National AIDS Program (NAP, now known as NCHADS) in five provinces (Kampong Cham, Sihanoukville, Battambang, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh) since 1997. The first year served to supply baseline data and in subsequent years, the progression of these variables has been monitored. In the last round in 2003, five new provinces were added to the survey, but the results did not add any further information so they will not be included this year.

HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: an Experience of the Royal Thai Army in Thailand. UNAIDS (2004)

HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control: an Experience of the Royal Thai Army in Thailand. UNAIDS (2004) Thailand was one of the most severely affected countries during the early stage of the AIDS pandemic. However, the country openly addressed the problem and implemented strict and continuous preventive measures. These measures have been well recognized for their effectiveness in reducing the cumulative number of HIV infections from the previously estimated number of 6-8 million infected by the year 2000 to a more recent computerized projection of 1 million infected people. The number of new infections is estimated to be around 25,000 per year-down from the estimated annual figure of over 100,000 persons. The success of Thailandûs HIV-prevention-and-control campaigns has been internationally acknowledged.

Peer Education Kit for Uniformed Services. UNAIDS (2003)

Peer Education Kit for Uniformed Services. UNAIDS (2003) There is a critical need to find effective ways to lower the risk-taking behaviour that leads to infection with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in uniformed services populations (i.e. military, peacekeepers, police). Behaviour change, based on acquiring knowledge and learning skills, along with individual risk assessment, is an effective method for reducing risk-taking behaviour and encouraging uniformed services personnel to become advocates in the fight against HIV/AIDS/STIs.
