Название: The Africa Multi-Country AIDS Program 2000-2006: Results of the World Bank's Response to a Development Crisis
Авторы: Gorgens-Albino M., Mohammad N., Blankhart D.
'The Africa Multi-Country AIDS Program 2000–2006' shows that the funding made available through the World Bank's Multi-Country AIDS Program (MAP) has dramatically increased access to HIV prevention, care, and treatment across Africa. The book uses extensive data from national surveys and HIV/AIDS programs that show how MAP funding has helped support children and adults affected by AIDS, prevented mother-to-child transmission, helped countries build capacity for expanded and more effective national programs — including providing treatment — and been a catalyst for greatly increased support. Published and unpublished data from 30 countries are compiled to provide the fi rst summary picture of the results to which MAP support in Africa has contributed. One unique feature of the MAP has been its emphasis on channeling money to communities, grassroots initiatives, civil-society organizations, and NGOs. Personal stories from people and groups in Uganda, Ethiopia, and Rwanda offer powerful examples of how these grass-roots efforts and sharing of knowledge and experiences among countries have improved health and lives, reduced stigma, and given new hope to people living with and affected by HIV across the continent. The book also introduces a new Results Scorecard and Framework to better measure and report on results of Bank-fi nanced HIV/AIDS programs in Africa. The results described in this book will be of great interest to readers working in the areas of civil society engagement, public health, poverty reduction, social development, and population and reproductive health, as well as to anyone interested in national and global responses to HIV in Africa.
