Born too soon : the global action report on preterm birth by Fernando Althabe( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born too soon: the global action report on preterm birth provides the first-ever national, regional and global estimates of preterm birth. The report shows the extent to which preterm birth is on the rise in most countries, and is now the second leading cause of death globally for children under five, after pneumonia. Addressing preterm birth is now an urgent priority for reaching Millennium Development Goal 4, calling for the reduction of child deaths by two-thirds by 2015. This report shows that rapid change is possible and identifies priority actions for everyone. This inspiring report is a joint effort of almost 50 international, regional and national organizations, led by the March of Dimes, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, Save the Children and the World Health Organization in support of the Every Woman Every Child effort, led by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Born too soon proposes actions for policy, programs and research by all partners--from governments to NGOs to the business community -- that if acted upon, will substantially reduce the toll of preterm birth, especially in high-burden countries. The report contains a foreword by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and is accompanied by more than 30 new and expanded commitments to prevention and care of preterm birth, joining more than 200 existing commitments on the Every Woman Every Child web site

The impact of foreign aid on the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-saharan Africa by Mary Kinney( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In May 2007, the United States' President promised to contribute an additional US$ 30 million to the fight against HIV/AIDS. This is only one of the most recent donor commitment of what has been a substantial amount of foreign aid to fight HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS estimates that donor governments committed US$5.6 billion in 2006 alone). Compared to other regions in the world, Sub-Saharan Africa is the most heavily affected by HIV and AIDS with an estimated 24.7 million people living with HIV. Due to its high levels of infection, many African states receive substantial amounts of foreign aid specific to HIV/AIDS. However, it is unclear whether foreign aid actually helps to curb the epidemic or if it increases treatment for people living with HIV. In order to sustain this funding, donors need evidence that foreign aid is having a positive impact on the HIV I AIDS epidemic. In an attempt to find whether such evidence indeed does exist, I investigate the relationship between HIV I AIDS related foreign aid and two indicators of the AIDS epidemic: (1) HIV reduction and (2) access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) treatment. In doing so, I also consider the influence of four national characteristics that may relate both to foreign aid and to HIV prevention and ART coverage and thus obscure the impact of foreign aid. The national characteristics for this study include: state capacity, governance, the type of AIDS response, and the severity of the epidemic. I collect a wealth of data on 29 Sub-Saharan African countries from vanous international institutions. The study is transparent and can be replicated, adjusted and expanded for future research. The empirical results indicate that HIV I AIDS related foreign aid increases national ART coverage. It also suggests that national characteristics do not appear to alter the impact of AIDS funding on treatment. The research yields a second major finding: there is no association between foreign aid and HIV prevalence reduction. This result su
