    India's hyped HIV / AIDS figures skew priorities.

    Population 2005. 2002 Mar-Apr; 4(1):7.

    Indian health workers and activists are accusing international agencies of inflating HIV/ AIDS statistics, which in turns skews priorities in the area of public health. The issue of inflated figures for HIV/AIDS victims in India has been the subject of controversy ever since Health Minister C. P. Thakur took exception to "inflated projections" released by the Joint U.N. Program on AIDS (UNAIDS) of deaths and infections caused by the virus in this country. Exasperated at a UNAIDS report which claimed that 4 million Indians had died of AIDS in 1999, Mr. Thakur said that only his ministry and the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) have the machinery to gather statistics and the authority to publicize them. UNAIDS country representative David Miller said that the mortality rate did need some scientific basis. "We are looking at a number of alternatives to arrive at some accurate number," he said.

    United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA]

    New York, New York, UNFPA, 2001. xii, 98 p.

    Financial Resource Flows for Population Activities in 1999 is the thirteenth edition of a report previously published by UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund) under the title of Global Population Assistance Report. The United Nations Population Fund has regularly collected data and reported on flows of international financial assistance to population activities. The Fund's annual Reports focused on the flow of funds from donors through bilateral, multilateral and non-governmental channels for population assistance to developing countries I and countries with economies in transition. Also included were grants and loans from development banks for population activities in developing countries. In light of the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development and, at the request of the Commission on Population and Development, UNFPA updated its reporting system and began collecting data on domestic resource expenditures in developing countries in addition to data on international population assistance. This report contains information on international assistance from 1990 to 1999 and domestic resource flows to population activities from 1997 to 1999. (excerpt)
