    Makonda-Ridley A

    Geneva, Switzerland, Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS [UNAIDS], 2001 Jan. 204 p.

    UNAIDS has decided to create a Global Directory of Condom Social Marketing Projects and Organisations to provide information and data on social marketing for countries, institutions and organisations working in HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted disease programmes, especially in the area of condom programming. The information contained in the directory demonstrates the different ways in which social marketing complements and supports HIV/AIDS prevention efforts. The directory, which covers different models of condom social marketing programmes, specifically intends to: Show the contribution of social marketing in HIV/AIDS programmes; Stimulate new ideas and developments in social marketing for HIV prevention; Serve as an advocacy document to encourage policy makers and implementers to adopt the social marketing approach for condom programming in HIV/AIDS, when possible and for health promotion in general; Constitute a database of social marketing organisations and programmes that reflects activities in different countries regarding HIV/AIDS and social marketing; Provide important information on social marketing. The condom social marketing organisations, profiled in Section 4, were closely involved in providing the necessary information to create the Directory. (excerpt)

    Resource guide to non-governmental organizations concerned with AIDS in Africa based in the United Kingdom.

    Haslegrave M

    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.

    Gowan A; Reining A

    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)
