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.

New York, New York, United Nations Population Fund, 1988. xi, 477 p. (Population Programmes and Projects Vol. 1.)This is the 5th edition of the GUIDE to be published. A new edition is issued every 3 years. The GUIDE was mandated by the World Population Plan of Action, adopted by consensus at the World Population Conference held in Bucharest, Romania, in August 1974. Each entry for an organization describes its mandates, fields of special interest, program areas in which assistance is provided, types of support activities which can be provided, restrictions on types of assistance, channels of assistance, how to apply for assistance, monitoring and evaluation of programs, reporting requirements, and address, of organization. International population assistance is broadly construed as 1) direct financial grants or loans to governments or national and non-governmental organizations within developing countries; 2) indirect grants for commodities, equipment, or vehicles; and 3) technical assistance training programs, expert and advisory services, and information programs. To gather information for this edition of the GUIDE, a questionnaire was sent to more than 350 multilateral, regional, bilateral, non-governmental, university, research agencies, organizations, and institutions throughout the world.
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)

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.
