Modelos de Aprendizaje es la unidad de investigación, documentación y diseminación de lecciones aprendidas de la Iniciativa Esperanza de Visión Mundial Internacional. Su trabajo inició en África en dos países piloto, Uganda y Zambia en el 2003. En LAC ha iniciado la implementación de modelos operativos en Honduras y República Dominicana en el 2006. Estos modelos son la prevención de VIH en niños, niñas, adolescentes y jóvenes (NNAJ), el cuidado integral de la PVVS y de la niñez huérfana y vulnerable, la integración del desarrollo de actividades generadoras de ingreso y prevención de VIH, el modelo de prevención de VIH en trabajadores móviles y Canales de Esperanza, que es la movilización de las Iglesias en una respuesta integral a la pandemia.

New HIV infections have slowed and AIDS-related deaths dropped in recent years as result of global prevention and treatment efforts. U.S. funding for global health and related programs has saved millions of lives over the past three decades. One of the most successful global health initiatives – the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief – was established by President Bush in 2003. By 2010, PEPFAR was able to accomplish the following: (PEPFAR, June 2012)

For the first time, the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV is considered a realistic public health goal and an important part of the campaign to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals(MDGs) 4, 5 and 6.
As an organisation that works directly in the communities, World Vision sees its role in strengthening PMTCT on this level. Therefore, the organisation’s focus is on community-PMTCT (c-PMTCT). Community-based interventions within each of the four ‘prongs’ of PMTCT are designed to increase community need (demand) for health services and commodities and to strengthen the quality of these services at the primary health-care (PHC) level. In addition, community institutions themselves are strengthened to advocate for the supply of services in accordance with international guidelines, and they are empowered to sustain the social mobilisation and the continuum of care for mothers and children within a family-based approach. c-PMTCT includes the early diagnosis of exposed infants and clinical referral for enrolment in CPT and ART to reduce preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5. This family-based approach ensures that male partners and other household cultural influencers are involved in the care and treatment of mother and child.
Stigma and discrimination have been associated with HIV and AIDS since it first emerged.

The HIV and AIDS Hope Initiative is World Vision’s effort to increase and intensify responses to the AIDS pandemic in all of the more than 90 countries where World Vision operates. The overall goal of the Hope Initiative is to reduce the global impact of AIDS on children, their families and communities through the enhancement and expansion of World Vision programs and partnerships focused on HIV prevention, care, and advocacy. This booklet summarizes the Hope Initiative strategies for the nine key areas of HIV and AIDS response on which World Vision focuses. It is intended to be of use to partners interested in learning about World Vision’s HIV programming, including nongovernmental organizations, churches and other faith communities, donors, and policymakers.

Thousands of ordinary people in Africa sacrifice their meagre resources to make the world a better place in the face of HIV and AIDS. World Vision highlights the outstanding stories of these otherwise unheralded heroes and heroines. PDF: 5.91 Mb
In this landmark paper, professor Dick Day argues that if the HIV/AIDS pandemic is to be curbed in Africa, there must be a paradigm shift as a prerequiste to behavior change. The most important behavioral change facing Africa is in the area of sexual behavior. There is a need for a shift to a Biblical worldview that sees God as the Creator and Designer of human sexuality.
It is unconscionable that children – the most vulnerable members of society – remain on the periphery of the world's response to the AIDS pandemic. In prevention, care and treatment, children and youth are given lowest priority or are off the agenda entirely. PDF: 0.76 Mb

There is general indifference among Evangelical
congregations in the Caribbean to the AIDS
pandemic. Congregations need to be mobilised
to enable congregants to properly guard against
the disease, to reduce and eventually remove
stigmatisation of and discrimination against
persons living with HIV (PLWH), and develop
adequate mechanisms that enable Evangelical
Christian youth to handle their sexuality within
an understanding of Biblical teaching, scientific
accuracy and culturally appropriate methods.
