Men who have sex with men and HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. Globally, men who have sex with men (MSM) continue to bear a high burden of HIV infection. In sub-Saharan Africa, same-sex behaviours have been largely neglected by HIV research up to now. The results from recent studies, however, indicate the widespread existence of MSM groups across Africa, and high rates of HIV infection, HIV risk behaviour, and evidence of behavioural links between MSM and heterosexual networks have been reported (...) . Yet most African MSM have no safe access to relevant HIV/AIDS information and services, and many African states have not begun to recognise or address the needs of these men in the context of national HIV/AIDS prevention and control programmes. The HIV/AIDS community now has considerable challenges in clarifying and addressing the needs of MSM in sub-Saharan Africa; homosexuality is illegal in most countries, and political and social hostility are endemic. An effective response to HIV/AIDS
Family support for reducing morbidity and mortality in people with HIV/AIDS. BACKGROUND: Care and support play a critical role in assisting people who are HIV-positive to understand the need for prevention and to enable them to protect others. As the HIV/AIDS pandemic progresses and HIV-seropositive individuals contend with devastating illness, it seemed timely to inquire if they receive support from family members. It also was important to develop a normative idea of how much family support (...) exists and from whom it emanates. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of family support on morbidity, mortality, quality of life, and economics in families with at least one HIV-infected member, in developing countries. SEARCH STRATEGY: The following databases were searched:The Cochrane Central Register for Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, MEDLINE, AIDSLINE, CINAHL, Dissertation Abstracts International (DAI), EMBASE, BIOSIS, SCISEARCH, the Cochrane HIV/AIDS group

Interventions for improving the psychosocial well-being of children affected by HIV and AIDS. BACKGROUND: As a result of HIV-related mortalities more than 13 million children under the age of 15 have lost a parent due to HIV and AIDS. There are also many children who have HIV-positive parents or primary caregivers; these children are affected by HIV and AIDS and are potentially vulnerable to HIV transmission. Children affected by HIV and AIDS are more vulnerable and face greater challenges (...) to their psychosocial well-being compared to other children of the same age. Interventions have been adopted with the aim of improving the psychosocial well-being of children affected by HIV and AIDS. OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this review was to assess the effectiveness of interventions that aim to improve the psychosocial well-being of children directly affected by HIV and AIDS. SEARCH STRATEGY: Electronic databases were systematically searched using pre-defined search terms. Internet searches
