    Zimbabwe AIDS directory -- 1995: non-governmental organisations, AIDS service organisations, support groups, funders, resources.

    Zimbabwe AIDS Network; Southern Africa AIDS Information Dissemination Service [SAfAIDS]

    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.

    Recommendations of the Abidjan workshop.

    AFRICAN POPULATION NEWSLETTER. 1995 Jul-Dec; (68):1-2.

    In June 1995, the Joint United Nations Economic Commission for Africa/OAU/ADB Secretariat, in cooperation with the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), organized a workshop on the implementation of the Dakar/Ngor Declaration and the Cairo Program of Action. Major recommendations from the workshop are summarized. Recommendations were addressed to African governments, African nongovernmental organizations (NGO), and regional and international institutions. Salient recommendations are: African governments should recommence long-term economic and social development planning, they should take steps to ensure the implementation and evaluation of national population programs, and countries should set realistic targets based upon the careful analysis of their demographic and socioeconomic conditions. NGOs should increase their efforts to favor groups with limited access to population programs, develop gender-sensitive approaches, and step up campaigns to remove legal barriers on adolescents' access to reproductive health services.
