New York, New York, IPPF, WHR, 2005.  p.Moving beyond its solid foundation of family planning services, IPPF/WHR's work has increasingly supported a comprehensive vision of sexual and reproductive health that includes human rights, sensitivity to gender, and a focus on quality care. The advent of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, which has been particularly devastating in the Caribbean region, has made urgent the need to integrate HIV/AIDS into the spectrum of education and services offered by IPPF/WHR's member associations. The IPPF Western Hemisphere Regional Office made great strides in its HIV/AIDS/STI work through 2004 and 2005, both at the Regional Office (RO) and member association level. During these two years, the HIV team has done much strategic planning, taken measures to increase RO capacity and partnerships, and promoted a significant increase in the number of HIV/AIDS and other STI (sexually transmitted infection) programs among member associations. This update provides an overview of the current HIV/AIDS/STI program unit and activities in the field. (author's)
Strategy to accelerate progress towards the attainment of international development goals and targets related to reproductive health.
Reproductive Health Matters. 2005; 13(25):11-18.Reproductive and sexual ill-health account for 20% of the global burden of ill-health for women, and 14% for men. The strategy presented in this document is the World Health Organization’s first global strategy on reproductive health. It was adopted by the 57th World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2004. Five priority aspects of reproductive and sexual health are targeted: improving antenatal, delivery, postpartum and newborn care; providing high-quality services for family planning, including infertility services; eliminating unsafe abortion; combatting sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, reproductive tract infections, cervical cancer and other gynaecological morbidities; and promoting sexual health. The strategy was developed as a result of extensive consultations in all regions with representatives from ministries of health, professional associations, non-governmental organizations, United Nations partners and other key stakeholders. It lays out actions needed for accelerating progress towards the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other international goals and targets relating to reproductive health, especially those from the International Conference on Population and Development in 1994 and its five-year follow-up. ‘‘The strong endorsement of this strategy by the WHA represents an unequivocal message that countries are committed to do all they can to achieve the goals and targets of the ICPD Programme of Action adopted in 1994.’’ (author's)
