Bethesda, Maryland, International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics, . 20 p.The International Institute for Vital Registration and Statistics (IIVRES) is a non-governmental, international organization free from political, commercial or national affiliation. Its principal objective is to promote the improvement of civil registration of births and deaths and other vital events and the compilation of vital statistics from such registration records. National officials responsible for civil registration or vital statistics in countries that are members of the UN or UN specialized agencies are eligible for membership. International agency personnel with related responsibilities are also invited to join. The annual Directory of Members is based on information received from countries and agencies, the IIVRES Chronicle, and a series of technical papers. This Directory lists 346 national members in 150 countries, as well as 31 international officials and technical assistance advisers. The national members include 79 from Africa, 55 from North America, 40 from South America, 86 from Asia, 56 from Europe, and 30 from Oceania.
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.
Report on developments and activities related to population information during the decade since the convening of the World Population Conference, Bucharest, 1974.
New York, United Nations, 1984 Jun. vi, 52 p. (POPIN Bulletin No. 5 ISEA/POPIN/5)A summary of developments in the population information field during the decade 1974-84 is presented. Progress has been made in improving population services that are available to world users. "Population Index" and direct access to computerized on-line services and POPLINE printouts are available in the US and 13 other countries through a cooperating network of institutions. POPLINE services are also available free of charge to requestors from developing countries. Regional Bibliographic efforts are DOCPAL for Latin America. PIDSA for Africa, ADOPT and EBIS/PROFILE. Much of the funding and support for population information activities comes from 4 major sources: 1) UN Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA): 2) US Agency for International Development (USAID); 3) International Development Research Centre (IRDC): and 4) the Government of Australia. There are important philosophical distinctions in the support provided by these sources. Duplication of effort is to be avoided. Many agencies need to develop an institutional memory. They are creating computerized data bases on funded projects. The creation of these data bases is a major priority for regional population information services that serve developing countries. Costs of developing these information services are prohibitive; however, it is important to see them in their proper perspective. Many governments are reluctant to commit funds for these activites. Common standards should be adopted for population information. Knowledge and use of available services should be increased. The importance os back-up services is apparent. Hard-copy reproductions of items in data bases should be included. This report is primarily descriptive rather than evaluative. However, given the increase in population distribution and changes in government attitudes over the importance of population matters, the main tasks for the next decade should be to build on these foundations; to insure effective and efficient use of services; to share experience and knowledge through POPIN and other networks; and to demonstrate to governments the valuable role of information programs in developing national population programs.
