HIV/AIDS surveillance in Egypt: current status and future challenges
Boutros, S.; Skordis, J. ( 2010 )

By international standards, HIV/AIDS prevalence is low in Egypt [< 0.1%]. However, questions about the accuracy of this figure are coupled with fears of an imminent increase in prevalence, with evidence suggesting that, despite Egypt's conservative culture, high-risk behaviour is more widespread than commonly reported and the country's changing socioeconomic context is perpetuating this trend. Through an analysis of the current HIV/AIDS surveillance system in Egypt, this paper explores some of the unique challenges this country faces in dealing with the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It concludes that constraints, such as Egypt's cultural norms and laws, the population's lack of knowledge about HIV/AIDS and the bureaucratic health system, hinder the development and implementation of effective surveillance systems

HIV/AIDS surveillance in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
Shrestha, Purushottam N. ( 1996 )

Reporting of AIDS cases began right from the inception of national AIDS programmes in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. HIV surveillance was initiated with ad hoc serological surveys of selected groups of population. However, these surveys suffered from statistical bias. To minimize this bias, sentinel surveillance was introduced in two groups: patients with sexually transmitted diseases and antenatal clinic attendants. Apart from surveillance, many other population groups are being tested for HIV, mainly for case-finding. As HIV surveillance has an important role in AIDS prevention and control, adequate attention should be paid to its improvement, including the use of unlinked anonymous testing and the participation of the private sector

HIV/AIDS treatment and care : WHO protocols in CIS countries
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2004 )

Lack of access to antiretroviral treatment has been declared by the WHO as a global health emergency, which requires immediate actions. In majority of the CIS countries, where number of people living with HIV/AIDS who need treatment is constantly growing, there is an urgent need to develop a system and algorithm for HIV/AIDS service delivery. This document was developed considering developed health care system of the CIS countries and offers protocols of HIV/AIDS treatment and care, including HAART, for adults and children, treatment of opportunistic infections, palliative care, PMTCT, treatment of HIV/AIDS in IDU, etc. This document was developed based on the recent WHO recommendations for the countries with limited resources, revised in December 2003 and March 2004 in the framework of the WHO "3 by 5" initiative. You are keeping the first version of the Protocols in your hand. The Protocols will be revised in the future based on improved data available on HIV/AIDS treatment and care. Check updates on HIV/AIDS treatment and Care protocols were designed as a basis for National Protocol development in the CIS countries

HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and tuberculosis in prisons : report on a joint WHO/UNAIDS European seminar, Warsaw, Poland, 14-16 December 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1998 )

Responding to the serious threat to public health posed by the high levels of HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and tuberculosis in the European prison population, the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, in collaboration with the institutions participating in the WHO health in prisons project, organized a seminar of representatives of prison administrations and health care staff, national AIDS and tuberculosis programmes, nongovernmental organizations, and justice, interior and health ministries from 16 countries. The participants exchanged information on the current situation as to risk behaviour, risk factors and transmission of disease in prisons in Europe. They assessed progress in and possible barriers to the adaptation and application of the WHO guidelines on HIV infection and AIDS in prisons and the WHO strategy for tuberculosis control, and discussed models of good practice for prevention and care. Calling for urgent action from governments and the international community, the participants made recommendations on safeguarding the rights of all prisoners to receive health care, including preventive measures, equivalent to that available in the community, without discrimination
