"I am elated to announce Envision for Girls<http://www.childrenandaids.org/agywviz>: a data hub that maps programmes, and highlights opportunities for realizing the well-being of adolescent girls and young women. Knowing where the investments are, and where the gaps exist is now simply a few clicks away for HIV prevention advocates, ministries of health, national programme managers and donor agencies. This dashboard was created with the belief that to reach ambitious goals, current programme investments must be better aligned, and should target localities where new infections are highest."

Dear Colleagues,
Sharing with you an upcoming webinar series on the Toolkit for Research and Development of Paediatric ARV Drugs and Formulations that starts tomorrow.

-----
Toolkit for research and development of paediatric antiretroviral drugs and formulations

Various efforts have enabled better alignment and convergence around key principles in paediatric drug development. These principles now need to be crystallised and promoted, so that higher standards in paediatric drug research and development can be ensured. The toolkit was initiated by the WHO and Unitaid in collaboration with, IMPAACT, PENTAid and the WHO convened Paediatric ARV Working Group (PAWG). The toolkit identifies the challenges and outlines possible solutions for promoting and accelerating timely and high-quality research and development of antiretroviral drug formulations suitable for infants, children, adolescents, and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

WHO Global Open Consultation

1 week 4 days ago
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHO Global Open Consultation for Innovative Personal Protective Equipment
URGENT- Please Respond
The African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM) strongly encourages its membership
to respond to the World Health Organization's (WHO) request for consultation on
an innovative design for personal protective equipment (PPE). A WHO report on health
worker infections during the 2014-2016 Ebola virus epidemic in Guinea, Liberia,
and Sierra Leone found a number of deficiencies, including "inappropriate use or
lack of PPE". Factors contributing to these deficiencies ranged from challenges
in training to human factors and characteristics of PPE equipment. Technical Advisory
Committees have proposed ten "ideal characteristics" for improved PPE, which are
open for public consultation. WHO is seeking comments from institutions and organizations
as well as from individuals.
Please follow the link below for complete information and to submit comments.
Comments must be submitted by 28 September 2017.

RE: UNICEF at AIDS 2018 - Adolescents Living with HIV-RUNNING POSITIVE- A REAL LIFE STORY

1 week 4 days ago
Dear Colleagues

As you may know for many years now UNAIDS has been supporting the Adolescents Living with HIV in India to become true champions of - really living with HIV- and building a real life despite all the challenges and setbacks because of the disease and the society.

We have supported two of them who have participated in many sport events especially marathons here at home and around the globe to document their life stories from the beginning of the journey until now into a movie called RUNNING POSITIVE which will be launched in Amsterdam during the International AIDS Conference.

We do wish that this movie will bring hope in the life of the 2.1 million Adolescents living with HIV around the world and who are facing same challenges with adherence to treatment, schooling, getting a job, family life, living a normal life in the society, etc.

The launch of the movie will be on the 23rd of July 2018 from 17.00 hours to 19.00 hours at the Global Village, and you are invited to come and support our YOUNG CHAMPIONS at that world stage.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or my colleague Ms Nandini Kapoor at KapoorN@unaids.org

Best regards.

Venue: G104-105

Refreshments will be provided.




Many countries in Africa have introduced and are scaling up routine point-of-care (POC) early infant diagnosis (EID), and are also considering the targeted use of POC viral load (VL) testing within their national health programmes. To support countries with implementation, global health partners recently launched two complementary resources: Key Considerations for Introducing New HIV Point of Care Diagnostic Technologies in National Health Systems and the HIV Point-of-Care Diagnostics Toolkit. This session will highlight the specific contributions of these new resources, both of which are based upon robust implementation experience from more than 10 countries.

Speakers will include representatives from Ministries of Health, UNICEF, Unitaid, WHO, OGAC, ASLM, CHAI, EGPAF, and the International Coalition of Women Living with HIV (ICW).

Communique from ICW ISC to ICW Members and Friends

1 week 4 days ago
ICW Members, Partners and Friends

 

We write to you in the spirit of transparency and accountability as we believe in the leadership of women living with HIV and we are champions of ICW.  We write to you to share concerns regarding the governance and management of ICW as a global network that leaves the network unable to lead and bring women living with HIV together..  Our efforts to internally ask questions and resolve concerns have not worked and we see an increase in questionable actions so we feel we have no alternative but to speak publicly.




1. We have raised concerns on conflict of interest and possible mismanagement of funds by the Global Director who has traveled with her husband to Bangkok in November on Business class paid for with ICW funds. No investigation has been done to clear doubts raised by six ICW members or to resolve any potential misunderstanding. ICW Global Director has continued to fly with her husband on multiple ICW funded work trips in 2018. We are concerned that ICW global office procured printing of the ICW Strategic Plan from a business managed by ICW Director’s husband even way before the plan was approved by the ISC and ICW regions.




2. We are concerned that the November 2017 ISC meeting was not convened as guided by ICW Constitution.  ICW Director did not ensure that all new and returning members of the ISC would be present for the board meeting held in Bangkok. Five Board members (who were subsequently dismissed from the Board, were surprised to discover that their flights would depart immediately after reviewing the ICW Strategic Plan, before board meeting and elections of board officials thus excluding voting members form African regions and North America from participating.




3. Despite concerns being raised regarding conflict of interest and possible mismanagement by 6 Board members, ICW Chairperson renewed the contract of the Global director without a formal appraisal as defined by the constitution and Governance Manual.

 

4. A public communication went from the ICW Chairperson on May 8th that mentioned changes to the International Steering Committee (ISC) of the International Community of Women Living HIV (ICW). The communication mentioned that there would be rumors from within the ICW family as a result of these changes. 

 

5. Following that announcement, six ICW board members received a letter from the ICW Chairperson – Marama Pala on May 24th 2018, that they had been removed from the board.

 

6. In the spirit of transparency and accountability, the six board members are; Adrienne Munene – ICW Eastern Africa; Monisola Elizabeth Ajiboye – ICW West Africa; Louki Banguitoumba Tatiana –Central Africa; Sharon Mashamba –Southern Africa; Martha Cameron and Brittany Cameron from ICW North America.  Prior to their dismissal, all six members had raised questions regarding the management and governance of ICW Global Network.

 

7. We sought for explanation on the above-mentioned concerns but none was coming forth.  In our duty to ICW and to women living with HIV, we were not satisfied with the silence and lack of action thus we wrote a letter of no confidence on the chairperson in a letter dated March 13th 2018. This information was also copied to ICW funders for the purpose of transparency and accountability because we had concerns with financial management.

 

8. We requested for a meeting either virtually or in person to discuss a way forward for all board members to be led by a reputable and independent arbitration committee but the response was removal of all six members mentioned above from any communication and eventually receiving notice of their removal from the board.




9. We, the six members have since then reached out to UNAIDS and UN Women for support in mediating. UNAIDS and UN Women have committed to support in bringing all ICW leaders together from different regions to discuss and agree on a way forward. We have however learned that ICW Global Director – Rebecca have rejected the support offered.



10. The Kenya NGO Board – a government Department that regulates operations of NGO’s in Kenya received allegations and complaints from some ICW members, on the unconstitutional removal of six members from ICW Board, abuses of power, and possible irregularities. The Kenya NGO Board gave a notice to ICW Director on their intent to do a forensic audit of the organization on June 12th 2018..  ICW Trustee members have reported that Rebecca has refused to comply and since then ICW office has not been occupied.
As leaders from different regions within the ICW family, our aim has been to seek for clarity on the questions and concerns mentioned above in accordance with our mandate as a governing body. As we hold our leaders, and others accountable, we want to set the same standard for ourselves. Our reputation is at stake and the credibility of the only global network by and for women living with HIV..

We are committed to ensure that ICW ‘weather this storm and have already put strategies in place to remain united and move ICW forward. We value the role of membership in this network. ICW has always been a strong Network, one where decisions have been made on a collaborative basis, with the best interest of our members, who are women living with HIV

 

We will remain committed to ensuring that the network remains to its core of holding others to account by doing the same internally. We are committed to ensure that women living with HIV are not only at the centre of the HIV response but also take leadership in the wider global health agenda.

 

Approved by: ISC Board Members
