SEA-AIDS forum


Expand view

SEA-AIDS is an electronic-mail discussion and information service aimed at connecting the people building and shaping the response to HIV and AIDS in the South East Asia region. It aims to bring together a broad range of people including people living with HIV or AIDS; those working in government ministries, non-governmental and community-based organisations, and other national or international organisations; representatives of the business sector; and academic researchers. SEA-AIDSLink is for sharing experiences and information with colleagues throughout the region who have also joined the group. SEA-AIDSFiles allows you to get information and materials on HIV/AIDS in South East Asia by using simple e-mail commands.
For instance, a posting on 3 August 2004 concerns educating and empowering children with HIV. One participant from Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) argues that through cartoons and fairy tales, it is possible to promote the health and well-being of children living with HIV and AIDS. There is an urgent need to educate HIV positive children and MSF has developed tools to do this, because carers did not know how to approach them. The tools allowed carers to communicate properly with the children

Nutrition and HIV/AIDS (ProNut-HIV)


Expand view

The discussion group deals with how to enhance positive living through proper nutrition care and support by promoting a constructive dialogue between people living with HIV, front line workers, researchers, HIV and AIDS specialists and policy makers. The forum intends to focus primarily on the nutrition care and support of mothers and children, and later on the focus may shift to the nutrition care and support of other groups such as adults (men and women) and elderly. The forum invites people living with HIV, front line workers, researchers and program planners in HIV and AIDS and policy makers to actively participate and contribute to the dialogue. To maintain a high-quality and lively interaction, expert moderators in HIV and AIDS and nutrition will facilitate the discussion
