    [Report. Is sexual and reproductive health a key issue in policy proposals? The parties respond] Memoria. ¿Es la salud sexual y reproductiva un tema clave en las propuestas políticas? Los partidos responden.

    [La Paz, Bolivia], Programa de Coordinacion de Salud Integral [PROCOSI], [1998]. 100 p.

    Sexual and reproductive health have a decisive influence on the entire population's quality of life. We felt it necessary to share this concern with the political parties that were presenting the country with all types of proposals structured around government plans. How could this issue not be dealt with? As a first step, we sought out political parties to provide them with oral and written information about this problem and motivate them to reflect on it. The second step was to invite them to present their opinions about the international progress made on sexual and reproductive health and about the agreements Bolivia has signed at worldwide conferences organized by the United Nations in Cairo (1994) and Beijing (1995). The third step was to encourage them to write up viable proposals to overcome the tragedy of high maternal mortality rates in Bolivia. These were ways to approach the issue, since covering it in all its extension is not possible. (excerpt)

    The contemporary response of the Brazilian government, the civil society and UNESCO to the HIV / AIDS epidemic. CCO Meeting, New York, New York, October 2003. [Respuesta contemporánea del gobierno brasileño, la sociedad civil y la UNESCO a la epidemia de VIH/SIDA. Reunión del Comité de Organizaciones Copatrocinadoras, Nueva York, Nueva York, octubre de 2003]


    Brasilia, Brazil, UNESCO / Brazil, 2004. [10] p. (BR/2004/PI/H/1)

    Brazil has handled HIV/AIDS problems with much innovation and effectiveness, thereby creating good practices that other countries can learn from. As a universal organization, with a mandate encompassing the whole world, UNESCO must seek solutions wherever it can. Today, preventive education to fight HIV/AIDS is at the top of its agenda. Hence we must draw lessons from Brazil's experience so that your example can save lives and help development elsewhere: in Latin America, in Asia, in Africa, in Europe. We must learn from Brazil. We must learn fast. And we must apply what we learn quickly and effectively. (excerpt)

    Youth respond to world anti-AIDS campaign.

    VIETNAM POPULATION NEWS. 1998 Apr-Jun; (7):4-5.

    More than 8500 HIV/AIDS cases have thus far been reported in Vietnam. However, 6-10 times more people are actually estimated to be infected. In 1997, the government of Vietnam allocated about US$4 million to the country's national anti-AIDS program, and plans to mobilize another US$1 million for the program from domestic and international donors. Condom use needs to be promoted in Vietnam to help thwart the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), to help reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, and to garner greater male involvement and responsibility in family planning. Considerable efforts are being made to prevent the spread of HIV among Vietnam's youth. 90% of the more than 8500 HIV cases reported in Vietnam were among people under age 30 years, and about 5% were under age 19. In May 1998, the Vietnam Youth Union launched a nationwide program to help check the spread of HIV among youth, the UN Program for HIV/AIDS in Vietnam has targeted youth in its 1998 global anti-AIDS campaign, and UNICEF is developing youth-friendly activities such as youth clubs and youth mobile communication teams to improve youth's access to information and awareness. UNICEF is also working together with the Ministry of Education and Training to integrate life skills into the school curriculum, while the UNDCP is focusing upon HIV/AIDS prevention efforts among young drug users. UNFPA is working with the Youth Union to promote the use of condoms, disseminate information on HIV/AIDS, and integrate family planning and HIV/AIDS issues into the school curriculum, and the World Health Organization has pledged to stress the prevention and control of STDs for young people at risk.
