AIDS 2010: Barriers to Migrants and Mobile Populations in Accessing Comprehensive HIV Services and Treatment
Although conditions of mobility and migration are known to increase individuals’ vulnerability to HIV, there is little attention paid to the barriers migrants face in accessing comprehensive services, especially treatment and care.
AIDS 2010: Advancing Country Ownership: Achieving Program Sustainability and Long-Term Impact (Part 2)
A central focus of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is increasing country ownership in HIV strategy, program design and implementation.
Integration of services is a key challenge in the global response to the HIV and TB epidemics.
Despite years of prevention efforts, HIV incidence has been inadequately controlled and the HIV/AIDS epidemic remains a global public health crisis.
Three years after the adoption of the WHO/UNAIDS Guidance on Provider-Initiated HIV Testing and Counseling, universal access to HIV testing remains a distant goal.
Collectively we have made remarkable progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS – 4 million people have access to treatment, millions of children orphaned by AIDS are receiving essential services and health systems are being strengthened.
AIDS 2010: Safety and Effectiveness of 1% Tenofovir Vaginal Microbicide Gel in South African Women: Results of the CAPRISA 004 Trial
An update of current state of microbicide development will be provided. Speakers will provide a state of microbicide development update, safety and efficacy data from CAPRISA 004 and implications of the CAPRISA 004 trial results for the microbicide and PrEP field.
AIDS 2010: The Forgotten Epidemics: HIV and HCV in Prisons, Pre-Trial Detention, and other Closed Settings
Rates of HIV and HCV in prisons, pre-trial detention centers and other closed settings are much higher than in the community, and risk behaviours – in particular consensual and non-consensual forms of sexual activity and injecting drug use – are prevalent behind bars.
