In: European Population Conference / Conference Europeenne sur la Population. Proceedings / Actes. Volume 2. 23-26 March 1993, Geneva, Switzerland / 23-26 mars 1993, Geneve, Suisse, [compiled by] United Nations. Economic Commission for Europe, Council of Europe, United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA]. Strasbourg, France, Council of Europe, 1994. 379-81.This statement by the Committee for International Cooperation in National Research in Demography (CICRED) reiterates its aims and activities in providing population information through its publications and in maintaining contact with national population research centers. Since 1971, CICRED has provided quarterly computerized abstracts of 80 population reviews, which summarize about 1200 articles annually. A multilingual thesaurus has been available in English, French, and Spanish on computer disc and will soon be available in Arabic, Portuguese, and Chinese. 19 national monographs on aging will be available after 1993 in complete and summary form with a focus on the demographic, health, and economic implications of aging. 10 monographs on the impact of international migration on receiving countries were distributed in 1993. A regional assessment of the population research potential in developing countries has been conducted in Latin America, Asia and the Pacific, and Africa. Other conference proceedings have been published on the following topics: the impact of family planning on fertility change, integration of population factors into the socioeconomic planning process, the links between population and the environment, and the demographic impact of mortality.
[Unpublished] 1989. Presented at the 5th International Conference on AIDS, Montreal, Canada, June 4-10, 1989. 7 p. (WHO/GPA/DIR/89.2)Based on AIDS statistics reported to WHO, as of June 1, 1989, 149 nations reported 157,191 AIDS cases. 69% of these cases lived in 43 countries in the Americas, 16% in 47 countries in Africa, 14% in 28 European countries, and 1% in 31 countries of Asia and Oceania. Yet WHO estimated that the actual number was probably 480,000. Further, a Delphi study showed that >3 times the number of new HIV infections will occur during the 1990s than did in the 1980s. The global AIDS epidemic followed 3 courses in the 1980s. The 1st consisted of markedly rising HIV infection cases in areas already affected by HIV. In 1987, HIV seroprevalence among intravenous drug users stood at almost 1% in Bangkok; in 1988, 20%, and in June 1989, >40%. The 2nd involved the appearance of AIDS in areas that either had not been affected or only slightly so. In Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, HIV-1 seroprevalence rose to 4% form <1% within 2 years. Finally, complex and diverse social, economic, and cultural situations at national, provincial, and community levels served to further the extent of AIDS. The proportion of AIDS cases related to intravenous drug use jumped from 3%-13% in 1 year in Brazil and from 6%-34% in 4 years in Europe. To prevent the spread of AIDS, WHO founded the Global Programme on AIDS in 1987. As of June 1, 1989, it gave >US$60 million to 127 nations and arranged technical support for >1000 assignments to assist nations in developing national AIDS programs. WHO expected such programs to be developed in all the world's 187 countries by the end of 1989. To prevent the spread of AIDS, these programs must form linkages with other health and social programs. They also need to concentrate their efforts on health and social problems unique to their nation. They must take the lead in finding new approaches to prevent the spread of AIDS, caring for AIDS patients, and to guarantee equity in the provision of services.
