    Guide to the strategic planning process for a national response to HIV / AIDS. Introduction.

    Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS [UNAIDS]

    Geneva, Switzerland, UNAIDS, 1998. 7 p. (UNAIDS Best Practice Collection. Key Material; UNAIDS/98.18)

    Strategic planning, as developed in the present guide, defines not only the strategic framework of the national response, i.e. its fundamental principles, broad strategies, and institutional framework, but also the intermediate steps that need to be achieved in order to change the current situation into one that represents the objectives to be reached. In normative--as opposed to strategic--planning, activities are planned according to universal norms that apply to all beneficiaries, irrespective of their conditions or situations. Strategic planning takes an issue's underlying determinants into account, which vary according to the persons concerned (e.g. their social class, religion, culture, gender specificities, etc.) and according to situations that may alter rapidly over time. Strategic planning means adapting norms to a given or changing situation. A strategic plan, therefore, includes a normative as well as a strategic dimension. (excerpt)

    Guide to the strategic planning process for a national response to HIV / AIDS. 4. Resource mobilization.

    Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS [UNAIDS]

    Geneva, Switzerland, UNAIDS, 2000 Aug. 19 p. (UNAIDS Best Practice Collection. Key Material; UNAIDS/00.21E)

    The major focus of this module is on 'mobilization of resources' and it should primarily be read or used in conjunction with each of the first three modules. Those who will use it are the situation analysis and/or the response analysis team, and the team responsible for the formulation of the strategic plan. However there will also from time to time be a need to secure resources after the formulation of the strategic plan, for instance to support the expansion of emerging successful strategies, or to supplement shortfall in funding for a priority strategy or a catalytic project. This module will therefore also deal with relevant approaches, techniques and methods for that purpose. Following an overview and definition of resources and resource partners, the module: highlights the ways in which resources are effectively mobilized through a strategic planning process; describes specific approaches to mobilization of 'additional' resources in the course of the implementation of the strategic plan.

    Country commodity manager. CCM: a computer program for the management and forecasting of reproductive health commodity needs. Instruction manual. Software version 2.

    United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA]. Technical Support Division

    New York, New York, UNFPA, 2004. 47 p. (E/800/2004)

    The purpose of the Country Commodity Manager (CCM) is to assist country offices in their efforts to assess their reproductive health commodity requirements, stock positions, and possible shortfalls. CCM is an easy-to-use program which can quickly generate models and reports which will: 1) forecast reproductive health commodity requirements based on logistics and inventory data, 2) validate this forecast utilizing demographic data, and 3) warn of future reproductive health commodity shortfalls. CCM also provides a mechanism to readily transmit each country’s data to UNFPA headquarters from their country offices for use in generating global level reports for the purposes of planning, advocacy and resource mobilization. In this latest release of the software, we have added other reproductive health commodities and kits to the list of contraceptives that was managed in the first version. Our goal is to collect global data on all of these commodities. This new release also includes the much requested ability for users to add the names of any other commodities they wish to the data tables to be managed and reported on by CCM. (excerpt)

    Planning, development and health: an approach to training, 2nd ed., rev.

    United Nations. Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific [ESCAP]; Royal Tropical Institute

    Bangkok, Thailand, ESCAP, 1984. 323 p. (ESCAP Programme on Health and Development Technical Paper No. 66/PHD 19; ST/ESCAP/286)

    This training manual describes the organization of the courses, the course syllabus, the 1983 course on planning, development and health, the follow-up evaluation of the training courses of 1976-82 and the specialized activities in planning for health and development at ESCAP. Planning for health is viewed as an integral part of overall development planning with the conscious incorporation of clear goals, to help ensure that development programs have a positive impact on the health of the region's poor. ESCAP's training program aims to amplify, in concrete terms, the close relationship between health and development and to build the capability to take an integrated and multisectoral approach to inproving health and accelerating development. The design and implementation of a training program oriented to strengthen capacities in planning, development and health is a function of these 3 terms. The basic frame has remained farily similar to the 1976 course. Training aims at behavior change--to strengthen capacity for action, rather than to accumulate knowledge and information for information's sake. Training objectives must be appraised in terms of relevance, adequacy, effectiveness, efficacy and impact before actual implementation beings. The course is conceived as a unified, multi-sectoral approach to assess the health situation and propose intervention measures aimed at the elimination of the social causes of ill-health and disease of a country. The focus is in the relationships between health and development through systems analysis and relevant planning tools. The aim of the courses is to produce a cadre of planners for health with an innovative and intersectoral outlook, consistent with the dynamic approaches in health, development and planning and with abilities to convince the higher planning structures, rally political support and enlist coummunity involvement with focus on Health for All by the Year 2000. Tables and charts facilitate understanding of concepts involved in this training.

    World Health Day - April 7, 1998. Invest in the Future: Support Safe Motherhood. Resource booklet.

    American Association for World Health

    Washington, D.C., American Association for World Health, 1998. 47 p.

    World Health Day, established by the World Health Organization (WHO), is celebrated on April 7 in the 191 WHO member countries. WHO has designated Safe Motherhood as the common theme for 1998 World Health Day activities. Safe Motherhood is an international initiative aimed at ensuring women have safe pregnancies and deliveries and healthy infants. This manual was prepared as a resource for those involved in the planning of World Health Day 1998 in the US, where the slogan is: "Invest in the Future: Support Safe Motherhood." After providing background information on the global importance of the prevention of maternal mortality and morbidity, the manual sets forth detailed guidelines on forming an organizing committee, selecting events and activities, choosing a location, creating a planning schedule, identifying community resources, defining target audiences, using the mass media to publicize events, hospitality arrangements, and program evaluation. World Health Day activities appropriate for individuals, communities, workplaces, schools, religious organizations, government agencies, and health care settings are suggested. Also included, for possible reproduction, is a series of fact sheets on topics such as pregnancy-related mortality in the US, maternal nutrition, sexually transmitted diseases, family planning, prenatal care, warning signs during pregnancy, and breast feeding. Finally, lists of state contacts and hotlines are appended.
