Implementation of HIV prevention, treatment, care and support Conventions and Declarations in Swaziland and Zambia

This report highlights SAfAIDS’ findings on the implementation of regional and international HIV prevention, treatment, care and support conventions and declarations in Swaziland and Zambia. The assessment, which used qualitative methods to collect data on various HIV and AIDS services, used literature review and consultative meetings and key informant interviews with key stakeholders and focus group discussions with users of services and their representative organisations. SAfAIDS put together technical teams in the two countries comprised of an independent researcher, SAfAIDS staff and an in-country partner organisation identified to conduct the assessment.

Positive Transformation: Case Studies of Good Practice in HIV Interventions, SAfAIDS 2009

This document presents two case studies selected from some of SAfAIDS innovative work as a regional southern African organisation. In both case studies, it is evident that there is added value when a regional organisation works through strategic partnerships with governments and other key players in a country to implement innovative programmes; initially as pilots and then expanding and replicating in other countries. Very often, governments and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are so involved in fire-fighting in thier own countries, it compromises the time and opportunity to learn from other countries. Regional organisations that have a helicopter view of the region, are better placed to package the necessary information, learning experiences and to facilitate thier cross-sharing across countries.

Looking Back, Mapping Forwards: Research Findings on Home-based Care In Zimbabwe, SAfAIDS and Health & Development Networks (HDN), November 2007

 

To understand more about the development of home-based care (HBC) in Zimbabwe and its future potential, Irish Aid engaged Southern Africa HIV and AIDS Information Dissemination Service (SAfAIDS) and Health & Development Networks (HDN) to assess and document lessons from HBC interventions. Since 2005, Irish Aid has supported HBC initiatives in Zimbabwe, and is currently funding 15 HBC programmes throughout the country. The current project was designed to contribute to better understanding and assist evidence-based decision-making in the implementation of HBC interventions in Zimbabwe and beyond.

2008 Report on the global AIDS epidemic

The 2008 Report on the global AIDS epidemic confirms that the world is, at last, making some real progress in its response to AIDS. Governments are acting on their promises at the 2006 United Nations High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS, to scale up towards universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support by 2010. As of 2008, a small number of countries are already providing universal access to antiretroviral treatment and to services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Others are well on the way to doing so. In more and more countries, HIV infection levels are falling.
