    Breakthrough: UNDP's response to HIV / AIDS.

    United Nations Development Programme [UNDP]

    New York, New York, UNDP, 2004 Jun. 34 p.

    Something remarkable is happening in many parts of the world. Faced with a common enemy, people from different countries are discovering a shared goal. These are ordinary men and women who until recently had thought of HIV/AIDS as something that happened to other people. Responding to the epidemic has today become a passionate cause for each one. These individuals and groups are linked by one common factor: They have all been part of UNDP's Leadership for Results programme-- a unique and innovative process that helps to create an enabling environment to halt and reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS, by fostering hope, generating transformation and producing breakthrough results.

    Overcoming AIDS stigma and media fatigue.

    Spadacini BM

    Global AIDSLink. 2003 Apr-May; (79):12-13.

    The media plays a unique role within society either to denounce or to perpetuate the bias and moral judgments against people with HIV/AIDS. Sometimes journalists can underestimate how influential their portrayal of HIV/AIDS is in shaping people's attitudes, especially when society fails to distinguish between people and the disease they suffer from; when denial is so pervasive that the infected are ostracized by their families. In addition, reporters, editors and producers constantly grapple with ways to find fresh angles to discuss HIV, and ensure their viewers and readers remain engaged by a topic that never appears to grow old. To address these and other key topics concerning the media and its treatment of HIV/AIDS, the World Bank organized a distance-learning course from June to November 2002 that simultaneously brought together journalists and HIV/AIDS project managers from Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Nigeria and Malawi. The course, entitled Fighting the HIV/AIDS Pandemic through Information and Strategic Communication, recognizes the role that successful communication campaigns can play in increasing understanding of the disease and promoting life-saving behaviors. Each program stream consisted of eight video-conferenced modules, which were followed up through in-country work. (excerpt)

    New challenges and opportunities? Communication for HIV and development.

    du Guerny J; Hsu LN

    [Bangkok, Thailand], United Nations Development Programme [UNDP], South-East Asia HIV and Development Project, 2001 Feb. [7] p.

    This prompted me to wonder about the following two sides of the same consideration below: 1. Whether development decision makers and experts could explore how Communication could help them promote policies and activities on the interrelations between HIV/AIDS and development; and 2. Whether Communication experts could try to apply their talents to these complex but important interrelations. This is why, besides contributing to the Drum Beat chat, I would like to draw the attention of those interested in the relationship between HIV/AIDS and development to the potential role Communication could play. In other words, as HIV/AIDS is increasingly being recognized as a multisectoral issue, I would like to advocate for the need to develop appropriate Communication strategies for the development sectors (e.g. transport, construction, agriculture) most relevant for combating HIV/AIDS, besides the health one.
