    HIV / AIDS and the African refugee education program in New Zealand.

    Worth H; Denholm N; Bannister J

    AIDS Education and Prevention. 2003 Aug; 15(4):346-356.

    In the past decade, the resettlement of African HIV-positive refugees in New Zealand has meant dramatically changing patterns of new HIV infection. This increase in heterosexually acquired HIV has been met by mounting disquiet on the part of the public, politicians, and health officials. The voices of the refugees themselves have been lost in this debate. This article discusses the experiences of African refugees with HIV, being in New Zealand, and the establishment of the National HIV/AIDS Refugee Health Education Program, designed to meet the needs of African communities in New Zealand.

    At the crossroads -- HIV and the People's Republic of China.

    Cook S; Flynn J; Merchant S; Pietrandoni G

    Positively Aware. 2003 Mar-Apr; 14(2):20-24.

    Developing and implementing a model HIV prevention program at the grass-roots level in the People's Republic of China is a very difficult undertaking, but this is the task we have agreed to with the Health Bureau of Zhejiang Province in China. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and various universities in the U.S. are actively involved with HIV/AIDS in China; but all of these undertakings are between professionals, usually physicians, or high level administrators on all sides. What has not been done, and what is unique to the relationship that Howard Brown Health Center (HBHC) is developing, is to work directly with the people in China who will implement the treatment and prevention programs among the Chinese population. Getting out in the field among the Chinese populations most at risk-men who have sex with men (MSM), intravenous drug users (IDUs), and female sex workers-is a major milestone. (author's)
