AIDS on the agenda : adapting development and humanitarian programmes to meet the challenge of HIV/AIDS by Sue Holden( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"AIDS on the Agenda is written for policy-makers, managers, and programme staff in development and humanitarian agencies, to promote debate about the challenges that confront them in a world which has been changed for ever by the pandemic of AIDS." "The author argues for the third approach as the essential initial response to the problem. She shows how mainstream work in a wide range of sectors - including food security, livelihoods support, education, health promotion, and emergency provision of water and sanitation - can be modified to reduce susceptibility to HIV infection and vulnerability to the impacts of AIDS. She also offers practical advice on modifying personnel and financial systems to protect the interests of staff and the viability of organisations when operating in AIDS-prone contexts." "The text is based on case studies drawn from the experiences of three agencies (ActionAid, Oxfam International, and Save the Children UK) and their partners; and on insights contributed by a wide range of other organisations. The project was funded by the UK government's Department for International Development."--BOOK JACKET

7 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book communicates in a direct and vivid way the experience of a group of young refugees in the Horn of Africa. It not only records the tragedies witnessed by the young contributors, but is also a celebration of their lives and cultures. Looking through their eyes we can experience some of the dramas they have survived, the bewilderment they feel at being refugees; but also their optimism for a better future. We have much to learn from their words and pictures and their courage in communicating their experiences to us is greatly to be admired. This book is an important contribution towards a greater understanding of what it means to be a child refugee in today's world. Anna Ford
