    HIV/AIDS in the transport sector of Southern African countries: A rapid assessment of cross-border regulations and formalities

    12 January 2005

    This assessment is an output of the Project and is based on interviews conducted and extensive research gathered between 18 October and 12 November 2004. It assesses policies and practices relating to HIV/AIDS in transport and the harmonization of border-crossing procedures, with a focus on the nexus between these two complex areas. It concludes with a set of recommendations for implementing policies and activities to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS in the transport sector. The primary focus on Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe may serve as a starting point for addressing these issues in other Southern African countries and beyond.

    Making Co-Investment a Reality – Strategies and Experiences

    12 January 2005

    The purpose of this paper is to foster a common understanding of the co-investment concept and approach in the fight against HIV/AIDS. While promoting a broader development perspective, the document takes inventory of different perspectives and interests of the private and the public sector. It provides an in depth discussion of many of the issues raised in earlier, shorter documents as well as during a series of multi-stakeholder co-investment meetings. The paper gives an outline of the theoretical background of private-public partnerships (PPPs) and co-investment, followed by the documentation and analysis of various examples and experiences of co-investment interventions. The strong focus on practical issues takes account of the evolving nature of the co-investment concept. Therefore, the document should be viewed as a contribution to the continuous learning process on this topic, a living document that will be updated as more successful co-investment strategies and examples become available.

    ILO and International instruments that can be used to protect Migrants rights in the context of HIV/AIDS

    01 January 2005

    This paper looks at ILO and other international instruments that can be used to protect the rights of migrants, especially in the context of HIV/AIDS in the following areas: equality of opportunity and treatment; protection of health; access to basic social security; and protection of family unity. The objective is not to do an exhaustive analysis of all standards and guidelines in this area, but to give a brief summary of what exists inside and outside the ILO. The emphasis is first put on ILO conventions and recommendations concerning migration for employment and on the ILO Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the World of Work. The second part deals with other international instruments. The UN Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrants Workers and Members of their Families is given particular attention since it will soon enter into force and contains provisions particularly relevant in the above-mentioned areas. It should be highlighted that this UN convention and ILO main conventions on migration (No. 97 and No. 143) constitute a complementary body of law and that 68 States have adopted one or more of these instruments. Finally attention is paid to other international instruments that, while not being migrants or HIV-specific, can provide protection in this context.
