PPTCT Fact Sheets for South Asian Countries

Country-specific PPTCT Fact Sheets have been developed for all eight South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka). These serve as a baseline for monitoring country progress towards the elimination of new HIV infections and congenital syphilis. As part of the regional efforts towards elimination, a costing tool aimed at supporting countries to estimate the costs of eliminating new paediatric HIV infection and congenital syphilis was also developed.

Programmatic guidance note for HIV prevention among adolescents

This document provides guidance to countries in South Asia regarding:  (i) design and delivery of HIV prevention programmes that reach adolescents and young people practicing unsafe behaviours that increase their risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs); (ii) design and delivery of programmes to influence the behaviour of adolescents and young people to reduce their risk of contracting HIV and STIs; and (iii) reaching adolescents and young people in situations that make them especially vulnerable to higher risks of HIV or other STIs.

The Gender Agenda:  Making HIV Responses Work for Key Affected Women and Girls

A video produced by the Inter-Agency Task team on Women, Girls, Gender Equality and HIV.
UNICEF ROSA joined forces with the Asia Pacific Interagency Task Team on Women, Girls, Gender Equality and HIV and the ‘Unzip the Lips’ campaign (http://www.unzipthelips.org/) to produce a short video on women most at risk of and most affected by HIV in the Asia Pacific region. The video highlights the needs and rights of these key affected women and girls in a concentrated epidemic. The video was shown to 260 delegates from 34 countries at the UN ESCAP Asia-Pacific High-level Intergovernmental Meeting on HIV/AIDS held in February 2012. While this is not a ROSA specific production, ROSA serves as a member in the IATT and therefore the video is relevant to our work.
