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.

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.

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)
Sydney, Australia, United Nations Information Center, 1985. 97 p.This booklet, describing support available from the UN, is a valuable resource for decision-makers and others interested in development issues. The South Pacific, a vast oceanic region of 100s of scatted islands, is rapidly changing. Since the early 1960s, 11 South Pacific countries have attained self-government or independence, and 5 are now numbered among the 159 member states of the UN. New issues and events keep the region is sharp international focus. While technological progress has reduced distances between the islands, the South Pacific countries continue to face many development challenges in health, housing, education, and adequate nutrition and water supplies. Growing urbanization, increased dependence on imported foods, and cash crops for exports are affecting the environmental and cultural patterns of the South Pacific. These issues are of primary concern to both the South Pacific and the UN. Over 30 of the UN family of agencies are cooperating with the governments of the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Republic of Palau (Belau), Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Western Samoa. The UN provides expertise and training opportunities, as well as capital assistance, to help improve the lives of the South Pacific islanders as they move towards self-sufficiency.
