Understanding and monitoring the prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection among premarital clients and discordant rate among premarital couples and applying specific interventions targeted at this group could bring dual benefit as it prevents both heterosexual and vertical transmission of the disease. 8.2% of premarital VCT clients included in the current study were sero positive for HIV. 6.5% of premarital VCT couples were found to be sero discordant, while concordant negative and concordant positive accounted for 92.0% and 1.4% respectively. Both HIV sero positivity and discordance were relatively higher among those who previously separated/divorced and widowed partners. So, don't you think that exerting special efforts to make premarital couples aware of their own and their partners' sero status before engagement is imperative to their future healthy life and the future of the nations?

The results are four-fold: First, the community of Malakal lack adequate knowledge of HIV/AIDS and such low knowledge of the disease has resulted in misconceptions towards persons living with it. Secondly, the PLWHA have developed negative attitudes in their relationships with the community, by denying the reality of living with the disease. Thirdly, the community perceives the PLWHA as different from themselves, people from whom they should distance themselves. Fourthly, there is great fear of HIV/AIDS which hinders the common person from discussing issues related to HIV/AIDS.The findings of this study have shown that to succeed in combating HIV/AIDS one has to tackle the challenges posed by the stigma associated with the epidemic; otherwise the efforts to provide care, treatment and prevention will not have an impact and ultimately impede efforts to defeat HIV/AIDS in the world.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) counseling and testing provides an entry point to comprehensive HIV/AIDS management. In Africa, most women attending antenatal clinics are usually counseled and tested for HIV only once that is during the initial visit and yet there is chance that they could contract HIV later on in pregnancy. Moreover, the women could also be in window period at the time of initial testing and could eventually turn HIV positive. Failure to repeat the test therefore later on in pregnancy leaves a gap in Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT). This book churns out first hand evidence of HIV incidence among erstwhile HIV negative pregnant women in Kakamega County - Kenya. The book also looks at factors that influence the decisions of the women to retest for HIV. The recommendations from this book provide practical solutions to governments and agencies in developing nations and the world at large by helping the policy makers craft strategies to curb Mother to Child Transmission of HIV.

I am indebted to Tigray Government for the support and My wife for being very supportive and her patience during my study. The prevalence of HIV is high with visible impact in a recently starting the struggle to overcome poverty. The effort to combat the impact of HIV have no equal attention to other developmental activities. Governmental organizations have little attention in mainstreaming HIV/AIDS in the planning process and/or during implementation. Non Governmental organizations and civil society organizations are few in number and financially weak, coordination for NGO'S and community organizations have duplication of interventions and concentration in geographical distribution, Poor surveillance, research and reporting system. Local Community based organizations like "EQUIB","MAHIBER" and Civil associations like Women association and youth association are not contributing their share.

Malnutrition and infection are invariably linked together each aggravating the other. Cell-mediated immunity, a function of the T-cells is markedly depressed by malnutrition. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS acts by destroying the T-cells which are actively involved in the defense of the body against viruses, fungi, parasites, bacteria and destruction of cancer cells. There is a need for HIV/AIDS infected persons to know and build a positive attitude towards dietary management of HIV/AIDS to prolong and improve their quality of lives. This book outlines the knowledge and attitudes towards the role of nutrition management of HIV/AIDS among the infected and affected.

Mental health and HIV/AIDS are closely interlinked. Mental disorders, including substance-use disorders, are associated with increased risk of HIV infection and affect adherence to and efficacy of antiretroviral treatments. Conversely, HIV infection can increase risk for neuropsychiatric complications including stress, mood, and neurocognitive disorders. This book provides clinicians with a comprehensive evidenced-based and practical approach to the management of patients with HIV infection and co-morbid mental disorders. It provides up-to-date and clear overviews of current clinical issues, as well as the relevant basic science. Information and data from studies of different HIV groups (eg men who have sex with men) make the text relevant to a broad spectrum of clinicians, including those working with low socioeconomic status groups in high income countries and those working in the developing world. The book uses the popular format of the World Psychiatric Association’s Evidence and Experience series. Review chapters summarize the evidence on the epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical aspects of mental disorders in HIV,and interventions (both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology including drug-drug interactions). These are complemented by commentaries addressing particular facets of each topic and providing insight gained from clinical experience. Psychiatrists, psychologists and all mental health staff working with HIV-infected patients will find this book of great benefit.

As Sub-Saharan Africa continues to claim the lion's share of the world's HIV burden, it is crucial to shed some light on the types of sexual behaviors and the underlying factors influencing these behaviors in relation to HIV/AIDS in this particular part of the world. Even though the relationship between sexual behaviors and HIV/AIDS has garnered a lot of attention and many researches have been conducted in the area, comprehensive knowledge is still inadequate in Sub-Saharan countries partially explaining the staggering incidence rate despite enormous investment focused on prevention. Given the paramount economic and social impact of HIV in Africa as a result of its drastic effect on the young and productive part of the society, studies specifically targeting this age group can unravel a wealth of information essential for intervention. This book closely examines perception of risk of HIV/AIDS and intention to adopt preventive behaviors among students in Dire Dawa University in Ethiopia.

HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, "Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome," has become one of the world's most serious health and development challenges, since the first cases were reported in 1981: At the end of 2010, an estimated 34 million people were living with HIV globally, including 3.4 million children less than 15 years. The number of people newly infected in 2010 was 2.7 million. Almost all of those living with HIV (97%) reside in low and middle income countries, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa remained the most affected region in the global AIDS epidemic. This regions accounts more than two third (68%) of people living with HIV. Most children with HIV live in this region. Globally, the annual numbers of people newly infected with HIV continues to decline (Global HIV/AIDS Response progress report, 2011).

Our argument is that civil society should be involved in the five key Areas (among others) which are: information collection and dissemination; Policy development consultation; Policy implementation, Assessment and monitoring and Advocacy for environmental justice. Generally, environmental governance is defined as a concept in political ecology and environmental policy that advocates sustainability as the supreme consideration for managing all human activities political, social and economic.

In all programs in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, there is a general consensus that information and education remain the backbone. To disseminate information, the media can play a significant role. However, various commentators have claimed that the media have been an underutilized force in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Moreover, studies of media coverage of HIV/AIDS conducted in various parts of the world have shown that scant coverage and distorted portrayal are almost the rule of the day. Generally speaking, however, whether the media are using their roles in the prevention of HIV/AIDS effectively remains a subject of scholarly debate. In Ethiopia, imperial information about media coverage of HIV/AIDS is sparse. This book, therefore, provides detailed analyzes of the magnitude and nature of HIV/AIDS coverage in Ethiopian newspapers. Since the analysis was made using different theories and other researches as a backdrop, the book provides important implications not only about the coverage of HIV/AIDS but also about theoretical underpinnings. The book will be useful for students, journalists, researchers and professionals in the field of media and communications.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: 2, , language: English, abstract: This study examined the relationship between marriage, social support, and psychological health among impoverished, rural mothers. While research suggests marital status and social support are negatively correlated with depression, research investigating such relationships and effects on poor, rural mothers over time is scant.To examine the roles of marital status, social support, and time on depression, mean comparison and analysis of variance were run for depression levels across time, categories of partnership, categories of social support, and categories of change in marital status over time. While findings revealed that marital status had little effect on depression levels, social support appeared to be negatively correlated with depression. Furthermore, mothers who maintained marital status and reported high social support reported the lowest depression levels. Findings contribute to the limited body of research focusing on health in rural areas and yield valuable knowledge about the experience of psychological health among impoverished, rural mothers.

HIV/AIDS has challenged humans perhaps more than any other pandemic in recent history. In the era of globalization and increased movement of people crossing borders, immigrants especially from HIV prone countries to the western world have been singled out as one of the 'risk groups' by host nations.In countries like Sweden, where multicultural society is in the making, HIV prevention programs have targeted immigrants more than others. However, HIV infections are still on the increase and HIV prevention strategies and methods have been questioned. This book explores the views of HIV prevention workers drawn from immigrants themselves and closely examines explanations from structural to specific contextual factors for the challenges of HIV prevention in multicultural neighborhoods of Gothenburg city in Sweden. The study surfaces out new dimensions that have not been sufficiently addressed by concerned bodies in HIV prevention efforts. The analysis from this study would help policy makers, professionals, HIV practitioners and ordinary people especially in the western world, where immigrants are significant proportion of society.

HIV/AIDS, a disease with neither cure nor vaccine, is a devastating pandemic. About 40 million people are infected, 4.1 million are infected annually, and 800,000 die from AIDS-related deaths each year. In developing countries, it is transmitted mainly heterosexually. Infection can be reduced through abstinence, faithfulness, and use of condoms. People must be knowledgeable about the disease and perceive that they are at risk of infection. This study investigated construction of sexual risk for HIV and behavioural change among youth in Masaka and Kampala districts in Uganda. The research studied perceived risk of youth in sexual activities, or activities which lead to sex and behaviour which youth adopt to reduce the risk. The findings have ample implications and applications for policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and scholars engaged in theoretical endeavours.

Online and blended learning requires the reconstruction of instructor and learner roles, relations, and practices in many aspects. Assessment becomes an important issue in non-traditional learning environments. Assessment literacy, i.e., understanding assessment and assessment strategies, is critical for both instructors and students in creating online and blended environments that are effective for teaching and learning. Instructors need to identify and implement assessment strategies and methods appropriate to online or blended learning. This includes an understanding of the potential of a variety of technology tools for monitoring student learning and improving their teaching effectiveness. From the students’ perspective, good assessment practices can show them what is important to learn and how they should approach learning; hence, engaging them in goal-oriented and self-regulatory cognitions and behaviors.The book targets instructors, instructional designers, and educational leaders who are interested in understanding and implementing either summative or formative assessment in online and blended learning environments. This book will assist the relevant audience in the theory and practice of assessment in online and blended learning environments. Providing both a research and practice perspective, this book can help instructors make the connection between pedagogy and technology tools to maximize their teaching and student learning.

They also identified a need for explicit and accurate knowledge on HIV/AIDS issues, opportunities to acquire behavioural skills for HIV prevention, and involvement of external speakers.The needs of the pupils have not been adequately addressed by the current classroom practice. Factors which influenced this can be linked to lack of policies that are responsive to culture and religion, ineffective and inadequate teaching policy guidelines, and lack of a policy prioritizing HIV/AIDS education by making it examinable. The findings suggest tha...

This book aimed to identify the level of voluntary disclosure and the corporate governance attributes that would affect the level of voluntary disclosure in the annual financial reports of Jordanian banks listed in the Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) for the years 2007-2010. The corporate governance attributes include (i) the board of directors’ size, (ii) the independence of the board, (iii) the separation between the position of chairman of the board of directors and CEO, (iv) the audit firm, (v) the profitability of the company and (vi) the concentration of the company's capital. Other attributes examined include: the size of the firm, the company's financial leverage and the number of branches. To measure voluntary disclosure, a disclosure index including 80 items was applied to the annual reports of (15) Jordanian banks listed in the ASE. A multiple regression model was employed and the results showed that, on average a bank disclosed 59.52% of the items included in the voluntary disclosure index. In addition, the results indicated that there was no relationship between voluntary disclosure and corporate governance which was measured by the above six mentioned variables.

There is no room for complacency about AIDS anywhere. It is estimated some 5 million people become infected with HIV per annum. Since the major means of transmission for the virus is heterosexual intercourse, identifying sero-discordant couples/partners through Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) will have paramount importance to mitigate the epidemic. This study aims to assess the prevalence of HIV sero-discordant test results and possible socio-demographic and behavioral determinants. Assessment of post-test reaction of discordant couples and perceived competency of counselors towards couple counseling will also be assessed. The study is retrospective crossectional study design based on simple random sampling of couples tested for HIV in 2004/5. The Ethiopian Standard VCT client record formats was sorted chronologically to serve as sampling frame. The calculated sample size for the quantitative study was 601 couples (1202 individuals). Qualitative data was generated from counselors and peer supervisors to enrich the quantitative data and address issues not addressed quantitatively.

After nearly 4 years of working in HIV and AIDS field, I have studied the whole episode from different parts of the world. My experience of being born and grown up in Africa, where nearly 22.5 million people are living with HIV and AIDS and has only 10% of world's population (UNAIDS/WHO,2008) and my working experience in England for nearly seven years have taught me that, the developed world approaches towards HIV Pandemic are quite different from that of developing World. The review of educational approach on HIV awareness, prevention, treatment and care management reveals that there are health inequalities between the developed and developing worlds (Pratt, 2003). In addition I have learned that the attitudes of us, Africans, towards HIV and AIDS need to change in order to effectively promote HIV/AIDS Prevention intervention in the communities, starting from the grassroots through to the government levels. The prevention Intervention of HIV in the developed world has been successful due to various opportunities and strengths including economy, technology and communities' accessibility to education which, have much influence in combating HIV and AIDS Pandemic.

HIV/AIDS has assumed an endemic dimension that everyone’s perception is important to tackle the scourge. This led the quest for HIV/AIDS knowledge and risk-related behaviours of the military personnel in Enugu Nigeria. They belong to high risk groups for HIV infection and there was paucity of such study amongst them. HIV/AIDS is a leading health problems in the developing countries Nigeria inclusive; the projections of annual deaths caused by AIDS has increased in Nigeria from less than 50,000 in 1999 to about 170,000 in 2007 and the number of Nigerian children orphaned as a result of parental AIDS deaths is projected to be near 1.2 million in 2007. Many army personnel in this book reported participating in high risk sexual behaviors,which may increase their risk of acquiring and spreading HIV/AIDS despite the overall relatively high knowledge level about HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention. This book was written for people around the world for cautiousness about HIV/AIDS; especially the army personnel.
