Nairobi, Kenya, Northern Aid, National Focal Point on FGM, 2001. 60 p.According to the 1998 Kenyan Demographic and Health Surveys, 38% of Kenyan women have been circumcised. The consequences of female genital mutilation (FGM) are many including, high maternal and infant mortality rates, irreversible lifelong health risks at the times of menstruation, consummation of marriage and during childbirth, immediate and long-term physical, sexual and psychological complications among others. During the past decade, different governments including the Kenyan government, international development agencies, UN and international and national organizations developed policies condemning the practice of FGM. In accordance, the National Focal Point of Kenya has compiled a directory in an effort to identify all players in this field. This directory provides a profile or organizations ranging from the Gok ministries to religious/research/counseling organizations, other local and international nongovernmental organizations and donors, including UN bodies. This directory aims to assist organizations to establish links with each other, in order to share experiences and to consolidate their efforts, as this is crucial in the eradication of FGM.

Zimbabwe AIDS directory -- 1995: non-governmental organisations, AIDS service organisations, support groups, funders, resources.
Harare, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe AIDS Network, 1995. ix, 126 p.As the AIDS epidemic has unfolded in Zimbabwe, a number of organizations have developed AIDS programs for awareness and prevention and to help people cope with HIV infection. This Directory aims to provide information on the nongovernmental organizations (NGO), AIDS service organizations, support groups and donors involved in AIDS work in Zimbabwe. It also identifies information sources and materials available internationally, particularly those available free or at low cost, and with special relevance for Africa. Entries are listed alphabetically by name and acronym. It is hoped that the Directory will assist many organizations within the NGO community and beyond to identify resources and improve links with sister organizations, donors, and others responding to the demands of the AIDS epidemic. Most importantly, it is hoped that it will help people directly affected by or infected with HIV/AIDS to gain better access to services and support.
Directory of hormonal contraceptives 1996. 3rd ed. Repertoire des contraceptifs hormonaux 1996. 3e edition. Guia de anticonceptivos hormonales 1996. 3a edicion.
London, England, International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF], 1996. 102 p. (IPPF Medical Publications)The "Directory of Hormonal Contraceptives" lists the composition and manufacturer of all such methods available in the major world countries. By coding all products with the same composition or formula, despite different brand names, the directory enables family planning providers to advise clients as to whether an identical formulation is available in other countries to which they might be relocating. The first and second editions of this directory were very useful to family planning associations, individual physicians, and international organizations. Since publication of the second edition in 1992, many new hormonal products have become available and others have been discontinued. This third edition expands the categories of hormonal contraceptives from the original five to eight: combined pills, phasic pills, progestogen-only pills, progestogen injectables, combined injectables, implants, hormonal IUDs, and emergency contraception. A further change is inclusion of some countries with populations under 100,000 that are members or associate members of IPPF. Finally, products containing more than 50 mcg of estrogen are no longer included since this dose is seldom used.
Guide to sources of international population assistance 1991, sixth edition: multilateral agencies; regional agencies; bilateral agencies; non-governmental organizations; university centres; research institutions; training organizations.
New York, New York, UNFPA, 1991. xvii, 386 p. (United Nations Population Fund Population Programmes and Projects Vol. 1)This guide, in its sixth edition since 1976, reflects a broad view of the definition of international population assistance. Therefore, included are many organizations and agencies that offer services rather than direct funding and that offer services only if funding is available. Listings are also included of demographic and research training institutions if they are concerned with developing countries and not limited to their own countries. The guide is divided into four sections: 1) multilateral organizations and agencies; 2) regional organizations and agencies; 3) bilateral agencies; and 4) nongovernmental organizations, universities, research institutions, and training organizations.

Washington, D.C., Center for Population Options, International Center on Adolescent Fertility, 1994. x, 70 p.This directory of agencies that support adolescent health programs in developing countries is a unique tool for identifying sources of support. The directory allows the identification of funding agencies that precedes the collaboration which is essential for turning the commitment, concern, and new ideas of program developers into reality. Part 1 of the directory lists organizations that fund programs directly (and which constitute the bulk of the listings). Part 2 presents organizations that fund through intermediaries (provide financial support to US-based agencies that work abroad). The best way to obtain support from these foundations is to collaborate with an intermediary organization. Appropriate intermediary organizations can be identified by obtaining the annual report of the foundation to see which organizations received funding recently. Agencies that provide technical assistance (in-kind support such as training, assistance in evaluation methodology, and educational supplied) are identified in Part 3. These organizations do not provide financial assistance. Finally, organizations interested in adolescent health are described in Part 4. These organizations have expressed an interest to be kept informed of activities, but they are not receptive to unsolicited proposals. They may be contacted to receive more information on their adolescent health activities. Information for each listing includes contacts, geographic regions of high priority, general purposes, types of projects supported, concern with adolescent health, descriptions of sample grants for youth work, and the application procedure. Advice on the art of advocacy, fund raising tips, how to write a proposal, and recommended resources is given in the appendices.

Geneva, Switzerland, WHO, 1988. vi, 82 p.There are 4 natural family planning (NFP) methods: rhythm, cervical mucus (Billings), basil body temperature, and symptothermal. The rhythm method is one in which cycle history of last 6-12 months is used to estimate the possible days of fertility. In the cervical mucus method a women must be able to detect changes in the cervical mucus discharge during the cycle. The basil body temperature method uses the difference in temperature that occurs after ovulation, and can only be used to detect the infertile time after ovulation. The symptothermal method combines the mucus method and the basil body temperature methods. In addition it uses other physiological indicators such as breast tenderness, pain, bleeding, and abdominal heaviness. The use of natural planning methods demands the cooperation and motivation of both partners to be successful. The methods can be taught by midwives, nurses doctors and other health care professionals. NFP teacher training is the cornerstone of the NFP programs and service. Teachers must have the technical ability and practical experience to carry out training programs. NFP programs can only be successful in areas that are receptive to NFP and have high literacy rates. To plan and implement NFP services, one must take into account community needs, resources available, and the structures needed to deliver these services. It is important to evaluate the effectiveness of the program, including formal evaluation of the teachers, monitoring of the users, and getting feedback from both.

Resource guide to non-governmental organizations concerned with AIDS in Africa based in the United Kingdom.
In: AIDS in Africa: the social and policy impact, edited by Norman Miller and Richard C. Rockwell. Lewiston, New York, The Edwin Mellen Press, 1988. 327-36. (Studies in African Health and Medicine Vol. 1)Africa has long been a major area of concern for development organizations and voluntary agencies based in the United Kingdom. While each organization pursues its own goals and objectives within its area of expertise, mechanisms for cooperation do exist. Such cooperation usually occurs around specific issues, such as famine relief, refugee assistance and primary health care. This essay surveys recent developments among members of a new consortium in the United Kingdom concerned with AIDS in Africa and other parts of the world. Also included is an appendix of the members and active observers of the United Kingdom Non-Governmental Consortium on AIDS in the Third World as of January 1988.
Resource guide to non-governmental organizations concerned with AIDS in Africa based in North America.
In: AIDS in Africa: the social and policy impact, edited by Norman Miller and Richard C. Rockwell. Lewiston, New York, The Edwin Mellen Press, 1988. 311-25. (Studies in African Health and Medicine Vol. 1)Many non-governmental organizations based in North America have in recent years focused programs on HIV and AIDS. Some of these have had longstanding ties to Africa, particularly church-based and health-oriented groups or those who have worked on population, famine, refugee or child care issues. Others currently involved in African AIDS issues have been concerned specifically with family planning, education, communications or broad developmental issues. Many in the latter group are, in fact, new to work on the continent. This resource guide is divided into 4 parts. The 1st surveys a specific NGO sector, that of the family planning organizations in the US concerned with AIDS. The 2nd section provides brief descriptions of some US-based organizations concerned with AIDS. A 3rd section focusses on the NGO organizations based in Canada. A final section provides a list of multi-national organizations plus governmental offices in Canada and the US concerned with AIDS. These descriptions, it should be emphasized, are all based on a preliminary survey and are not meant to be exhaustive. (author's modified)
