2002

Expand view

This chapter considers malaria control in displaced populations and in the context of complex emergencies, and places community participation (reflecting both understanding and acceptability of interventions) at the centre of both prevention and control of malaria. It finds that the sociocultural context surrounding displacement situations needs to be considered when designing malaria control interventions, and that treatment-seeking behaviours are complex and poorly understood in the context of complex emergencies. It offers suggestions in assessing needs and gathering information to inform project planning

Expand view

The Global hiv Prevention Working Group, convened by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, seeks to generate a greatly expanded commitment to preventing hiv transmission as part of a comprehensive approach to fighting the global epidemic. Both developed and developing countries have demonstrated that existing prevention strategies can have a major impact. This 'blueprint for action' - the first report of the Working Group - provides a road map for rapidly scaling up prevention programs to contain and ultimately reverse the aids epidemic. The report reviews the scientific literature on the effectiveness of hiv prevention interventions, identifies obstacles to quickly expanding prevention programs, and makes specific recommendations to prevent millions of infections this decade
