HIV and tuberculosis--science and implementation to turn the tide and reduce deaths
Havlir, Diane V; Lawn, Stephen D; Getahun, Haileyesus; Zachariah, Rony; Harries, Anthony D ( 2012-01-01 )

Every year, HIV-associated tuberculosis (TB) deprives 350,000 mainly young people of productive and healthy lives.People die because TB is not diagnosed and treated in those with known HIV infection and HIV infection is not diagnosed in those with TB. Even in those in whom both HIV and TB are diagnosed and treated, this often happens far too late. These deficiencies can be addressed through the application of new scientific evidence and diagnostic tools.A strategy of starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) early in the course of HIV infection has the potential to considerably reduce both individual and community burden of TB and needs urgent evaluation for efficacy, feasibility and broader social and economic impact. Isoniazid preventive therapy can reduce the risk of TB and, if given strategically in addition to ART, provides synergistic benefit. Intensified TB screening as part of the "Three I's" strategy should be conducted at every clinic, home or community-based attendance using a symptoms-based algorithm, and new diagnostic tools should increasingly be used to confirm or refute TB diagnoses. Until such time when more sensitive and specific TB diagnostic assays are widely available, bolder approaches such as empirical anti-TB treatment need to be considered and evaluated. Patients with suspected or diagnosed TB must be screened for HIV and given cotrimoxazole preventive therapy and ART if HIV-positive. Three large randomized trials provide conclusive evidence that ART initiated within two to four weeks of start of anti-TB treatment saves lives, particularly in those with severe immunosuppression. The key to ensuring that these collaborative activities are delivered is the co-location and integration of TB and HIV services within the health system and the community.Progress towards reducing HIV-associated TB deaths can be achieved through attention to simple and deliverable actions on the ground.

HIV and young people : report of the regional consultation, Thailand, 11-14 October 2005
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2007 )

Young people (10-24 years) are at the centre of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in terms of transmission, impact, vulnerability and potential for change. WHO is working to strengthen and accelerate country-level health sector action in relation to young people (YP) and HIV/AIDS, and thereby enable a range of actors to maximize their contributions to an expanded response for achieving global goals. This includes a focus on the 4 "S" strategies comprising Strategic information; Services and supplies; Supportive policy environment, and Strengthening action in other sectors. The publication is a report of a regional consultation held to review and obtain feedback on the draft Regional Strategy on HIV and young people; to develop and agree on a common framework for implementing activities related to HIV among Young People; to orient participants to the use of the monitoring and evaluation guide for national HIV/AIDS prevention programmes for young people and share evidence-based technical updates on Adolescent Health and Development (AHD) and HIV/Young People. The report provides an overview of regional scenarios on HIV/AIDS and young people, country experiences on provision of Youth Friendly Health Services (YFHS) and experiences in Bangladesh and India on the development of national standards and orientation programme package for health-care providers. It also gives a brief description on programme development tool, and Mapping Adolescent Programming and Measurement (MAPM), and provides an understanding on its use to review selected national HIV/AIDS plans to improve adolescent health development. A brief description on the draft regional strategic framework on control of HIV in young people is also provided in addition to description of the plan for future actions at country level, during the next six months as a follow-up of the consultation and areas for which technical assistance or capacity development will be required. The report concludes with recommendations regarding (i) Promotion of adolescent needs and development of national policy and strategy for adolescent health in Member countries; (ii) Initiation of age-and-sex disaggregated data on young people as an evidence base; (iii) Strengthening of support by countries to other sectors to contribute to HIV prevention and care in young people; (iv) Analysis of the innovative and successful initiatives taken on HIV/AIDS and young people, and utilization and sharing of information in this regard; (v) Improving the quality of health services and their utilization; Developing of guidelines, tools and standards by countries and expanding the coverage of quality services, (vi) Capacity development, technical assistance and networking for youth- friendly health services (YFHS) and related activities in countries of the Region.
