    Preventing a crisis: family planning associations and AIDS.

    International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF]. AIDS Prevention Unit

    [London, England], IPPF, AIDS Prevention Unit, 1988 Jan. [150] p.

    The International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) has established an AIDS prevention unit to provide disease prevention support to IPPF field officers and family planning programs. As part of its functions, the unit has prepared an AIDS planning and programming manual for use by senior family planning association staff. The manual 1st explains how AIDS is transmitted and current methods of treatment. It goes on to explain how family planning associations can go about developing AIDS prevention plans and the elements of those plans. Screening for HIV infection, the implications of AIDS for various methods of contraception, and health care workers' exposure risks are then discussed, followed by an outline of the development and implementation of AIDS information, education, and communication programs. The final sections of the manual discuss AIDS counselling, selection and training of clinic and service delivery personnel, development of services for adolescents and current IPPF AIDS activities.

    [Unpublished] [1979]. 4 p.

    The education and training of family planning personnel at every level in underdeveloped countries should be object of particular care and organization. Factors to be taken into consideration are the climate, means of transportation within the country, attitude of governments toward family programs, costs and funding. Help from international agencies should be accepted only through the country's scientific societies, or through existing family planning centers. Doctors should be specially trained on theoretical and practical aspects of biology and reproduction, and they should spend time working for existing programs. Midwives and nurses should take adequate courses in contraceptive technology; community leaders should be identified, and counselors given specific responsibilities.
