This leaflet intends to underline the existence of intersectional factors of vulnerability amongst Women with Disabilities with respect to HIV/AIDS and sexual violence in Burkina Faso and Guinea Bissau. The figures presented here are taken from two studies carried out in Burkina Faso and Guinea Bissau in 2017. In Burkina Faso, 28,667 people were interviewed in total, among whom 978 identified themselves as persons with disabilities (using the Washington Group Short Set of Questions). For the biobehavioral study in Guinea Bissau, 17,110 people were interviewed in total, among whom 1,147 identified themselves as persons with disabilities
Aimed at health workers, educators and community workers, these resources provide practical information on a wide range of care, support and prevention issues concerning HIV, AIDS and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in a fully searchable format. The resources include training manuals, briefing papers and discussion guides (eg Men's sexual health matters, Steps to making sex safer, HIV and safe motherhood). Also included are the international editions of AIDS Action, a newsletter that was produced by Healthlink Worldwide between 1987 and 2001, and Dialogue on Diarrhoea, 1980-1995
This CD-ROM contains issues 24-53 of AIDS Action Asia Pacific (AA-AP). AA-AP was a quarterly newsletter on HIV prevention and care, aimed at health workers, educators and community workers. Each issue of the newsletter has a thematic focus (eg, HIV drugs and diet, Traditional and alternative medicine, HIV and its impact on health workers). The newsletter was produced by Health Action Information Network (HAIN) in the Philippines between 1994 and 2001. It had a print run of 29,000 copies and reached 66 countries in south and south-east Asia and the Pacific region.
