Title: HIV/TB Programme - WFP Myanmar
Date of publication: April 2016
Description/subject: Context: "Myanmar remains one of the 34 countries worldwide that have the highest burden of chronic malnutrition, where more than one third (35.1 percent) of children under 5 are stunted and 7.9 percent are acutely malnourished. Myanmar is also one of the world ’ s 22 high tuberculosis (TB) burden countries, with a TB prevalence rate three times higher than the global average and one of the highest in Asia. The country remains in all three lists for TB High Burden Countries (TB HBCs): TB, TB/HIV and multi - drug resistant TB (MDR - TB), with people aged under 15 years constituted 26 percent of more than 138,300 new and relapse TB cases during 2014. Myanmar is also one of the world ’ s 27 high MDR - TB burden countries, and the MDR - TB rate among new cases is the highest in South East Asia. In 2014, around 210,000 people were estimated to live with HIV (PLHIV) in Myanmar, and in spite of 33 percent decrease in the number of deaths by AIDS, an estimated 10,000 people died of AIDS related illnesses in the same year. Although HIV prevalence in Myanmar has been in declining phase, it remains very high especially in people who inject drugs (23.1 percent), in men having sex with men (6.6 percent), and female sex workers (6.3 percent)..."

Title: Responding to HIV and AIDS - A Practitioner’s Guide to Mainstreaming in Development Projects
Date of publication: 2011
Description/subject: "The guide provides comprehensive information on HIV/AIDS mainstreaming and assists project staff to identify ways to effectively address the root causes of HIV infection and to mitigate the effects of HIV and AIDS on their core activities. It also addresses HIV and AIDS issues concerning staff within an organization. The guide was developed and revised in conjunction with Misereor partners in the South. Many of the examples and explanations were taken from African contexts; nevertheless the guide is designed to be used also in Asian and Latin American countries. Therefore you will also find references to non-African countries in this guide. Contents: * Responding to HIV and AIDS: HIV and AIDS as a development issue and introduction to the mainstreaming concept... * Root causes of HIV infection and effects of HIV and AIDS... * Mainstreaming: A practical guide... * Good practice examples of HIV/AIDS mainstreaming... *Seeking pathways within and beyond your organisation..."

Title: Promising responses to HIV and AIDS in agriculture, rural development, self-help and social protection
Date of publication: 2010
Description/subject: Foreword: "HIV and AIDS have various implications on the life of individuals, families, communities and societies. HIV and AIDS are not “merely” a health but also a development issue as they reduce chances for development and increase poverty. People living with HIV, households headed by women, elderly or orphans often have barriers to perform like others not affected by HIV and AIDS. Therefore they need specific attention and tailor-made responses in the different development sectors focusing on their needs, abilities and skills. One of the main pillars of Misereor’s work and its partners’ in different countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America is the reduction of poverty and assistance of the poor and the marginalized. Misereor and its partners have to take HIV and AIDS into account in development projects. This document was conducted as a desk study for the revision of the Misereor guide “Responding to HIV and AIDS – A practitioner’s guide to mainstreaming in development projects” (published 2010). It provides useful information and practical examples of such responses in the fields of agriculture, rural development, self-help and social protection. It aims to invite Misereor partners and others working in these fields to reflect on their current approaches and to encourage them to respond in their core business to the challenges brought by HIV and AIDS."

Title: Scale-up of national antiretroviral therapy programs: progress and challenges in the Asia Pacific region.
Date of publication: 2010
Description/subject: Background: There has been tremendous scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) services in the Asia Pacific region, which is home to an estimated 4.7 million persons living with HIV/AIDS. We examined treatment scale-up, ART program practices, and clinical outcome data in the nine low-and-middle-income countries that share over 95% of the HIV burden in the region. Methods: Standardized indicators for ART scale-up and treatment outcomes were examined for Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, and Vietnam using data submitted by each country to the WHO/ The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)/UNICEF joint framework tool for monitoring the health sector response to HIV/AIDS. Data on ART program practices were abstracted from National HIV Treatment Guidelines for each country. Results: At the end of 2009, over 700 000 HIV-infected persons were receiving ART in the nine focus countries. Treatment coverage varies widely in the region, ranging from 16 to 93%. All nine countries employ a public health approach to ART services and provide a standardized first-line nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor-based regimen. Among patients initiated on first-line ART in these countries, 65–88% remain alive and on treatment 12 months later. Over 50% of mortality occurs in the first 6 months of therapy, and losses to follow-up range from 8 to 16% at 2 years. Conclusion: Impressive ART scale-up efforts in the region have resulted in significant improvements in survival among persons receiving therapy. Continued funding support and political commitment will be essential for further expansion of public sector ART services to those in need. To improve treatment outcomes, national programs should focus on earlier identification of persons requiring ART, decentralization of ART services, and the development of stronger healthcare systems to support the provision of a continuum of HIV care....Keywords: antiretroviral therapy, Asia Pacific, HIV, outcomes, scale-up, treatment

Title: Prevention of HIV/AIDS among Migrant Workers in Thailand Project (PHAMIT) : The Impact Survey 2008
Date of publication: 2009
Description/subject: "Thailand has experienced some degree of success in preventing uncontrolled spread of HIV, and in providing effective care for persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA). Nevertheless, HIV transmission is still occurring, especially among those less fortunate who migrate to seek economic opportunity. A prime example of this are the lower-income populations of some of Thailand’s neighbors who come to work on fishing boats or in the fishery industry of Thailand. The vulnerability of these populations comes from their relative lack of knowledge and understanding of HIV prevention and tendency to engage in higher risk sexual behavior than when in their home communities of origin. To address these vulnerabilities, the Prevention of HIV/AIDS among Migrant Workers in Thailand Project (PHAMIT) was conceived and implemented by the Raks Thai Foundation in collaboration with six NGO partners including: Empower Foundation, the Foundation for AIDS Rights (FAR), World Vision Foundation/Thailand, the Stella Maris Seafarers Center, the MAP Foundation, and the Pattanarak Foundation. Funding for the Project was provided by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) with the goal to lower the incidence of HIV among foreign migrant workers in Thailand through communication strategies to reduce risk behaviors and support access from migrants to general health and reproductive health services. The Project was implemented during 2003-2008. In order to independently assess the performance of the PHAMIT Project compared to its targets and objectives, the Raks Thai Foundation contracted with the Institute for Population and Social Research (IPSR) of Mahidol University to conduct a final Project evaluation in 2008. IPSR would like to express its gratitude to Mr. Promboon Panitchapakdi, Executive Director of the Raks Thai Foundation for entrusting this important evaluation to the researchers of IPSR. It is our hope that the findings of this evaluation will be of benefit to the Project implementers, the PHAMIT partners in the field who will continue to deliver the interventions, and to any persons interested in conducting evaluation research of this type."

Title: An assessment of vulnerability to HIV infection of boatmen in Teknaf, Bangladesh
Date of publication: 14 March 2008
Description/subject: Conclusion: "Boatmen in Teknaf are an integral part of a high-risk sexual behaviour network between Myanmar and Bangladesh. They are at risk of obtaining HIV infection due to cross border mobility and unsafe sexual practices. There is an urgent need for designing interventions targeting boatmen in Teknaf to combat an impending epidemic of HIV among this group. They could be included in the serological surveillance as a vulnerable group. Interventions need to address issues on both sides of the border, other vulnerable groups, and refugees. Strong political will and cross border collaboration is mandatory for such interventions."

Findings: Hill Tribe Women and Girls in Thailand; Burmese Migrant Women and Girls in Thailand; VII. Law and Policy – Thailand; VIII. Applicable International Human Rights Law; IX. Law and Policy – United States X. Conclusion and Expanded Recommendations..."This study was designed to provide critical insight and remedial recommendations on the manner in which human rights violations committed against Burmese migrant and hill tribe women and girls in Thailand render them vulnerable to trafficking,2 unsafe migration, exploitative labor, and sexual exploitation and, consequently, through these additional violations, to HIV/AIDS. This report describes the policy failures of the government of Thailand, despite a program widely hailed as a model of HIV prevention for the region. Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) findings show that the Thai government's abdication of responsibility for uncorrupted and nondiscriminatory law enforcement and human rights protection has permitted ongoing violations of human rights, including those by authorities themselves, which have caused great harm to Burmese and hill tribe women and girls..."

Title: MAP Report 2001: The Status and Trends of HIV/AIDS/STI epidemics in Asia and the Pacific
Date of publication: 04 October 2001
Description/subject: "HIV has been well established in Asia for many years. However, many countries have recorded relatively low rates of infection even in sub-populations with high-risk behaviour. At the time of the last MAP report on Asia from Kuala Lumpur in 1999, only Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia were reporting substantial nation wide epidemics, with a number of states in India and provinces in China also heavily affected. In the last two years, the picture has changed dramatically. Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Nepal and Vietnam, for example, have all registered marked increases in HIV infection in recent years, while in China, home to a fifth of the world's people, the infection seems to be moving into new groups of the population..."
