Baseline: Most countries do not yet truly know their epidemic and need to step up efforts to collect, analyse and use data for planning, policy formulation and assessing progress. Overall, significant progress has been made in increasing access to HIV care and treatment and that of NCDs and the HIV epidemic seems to reach a plateau, though at high level. Stigma and discrimination are important challenges and legislative reform is required to ensure the human rights of vulnerable populations and those infected with HIV are respected
Target: All countries have established adequate systems for surveillance of HIV/NCDs to enable countries to better understand their HIV epidemic and NCD status and inform decision making, and increase access to related health services. At least 60% of countries have policies to support HIV and noncommunicable disease programmes that address stigma and discrimination and among vulnerable groups, taking into account of gender-based HIV vulnerabilities. Countries have improved HIV and nutrition education, and clear dietary guidelines.
# of schools in which nutrition has been added to the school curriculum.
# of countries with food based dietary guidelines prepared.
Baseline: Countries have draft work place policies Few schools with nutrition as part of curriculum. 4 countries with food based dietary guidelines prepared
Target: At least 60% of member states have policies to support HIV and non-communicable disease programmes that address stigma, discrimination and vulnerabilities. Work place policies adopted or included in national HIV/AIDS revised policies in at least 4 countries. All new programmatic, prevention-oriented responses take account of gender-based HIV vulnerabilities. At least 6 countries have developed food based dietary guidelines and integrated nutrition into school curricula
Output 1.3 National Surveillance of NCD/HIV strengthened
Indicators: % of obesity in females and males between the ages of 16-55% of minors who regularly consume alcohol# of schools with substance abuse and HIV prevention counselling
Baseline: Reporting on UNGASS Indicators in Barbados and the OECS ranges from 27% in Dominica to 77% in St. Lucia, with 5 of the 10 countries reporting on 50% or more. Reporting on Indicators relating to most vulnerable populations is low, indicating that national decision makers have not achieved clear understanding on the most at risk populations in the epidemic. Counselling support, particularly for at risk groups need to be strengthened.
Target: All countries have adequate and functional sites and systems for surveillance of HIV/NCD and capacity of statistics offices, ministries of health, and national aids commissions strengthened through networking, exchange of experiences and training opportunities. HIV prevalence and incidence among population between 0 - 25 reduced by 25% and obesity in females and males by 25%. Policies and updated legislation in place to restrict use of alcohol among minors, support counselling in schools to address the problem of drug and alcohol abuse by students, and integrate substance use and HIV prevention messages into youth services in at least 3 countries.
