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 condom social marketing organisations, profiled in Section 4, were closely involved in providing the necessary information to create the Directory. (excerpt)
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.
