CLAC's Resource Library contains many resources on key populations. To make a general search, add your keywords to the Search box located in the upper left corner of the website. For a more detailed search that yields fewer (and more relevant) results, use the various search filters on this page. To start, choose a topic from the dropdown menus below to generate a list of those resources — then use the other filters to narrow your results. After you have generated a list of resources, you may select specific resources by clicking on the headline/title of that reource. Indiviudual resource pages offer you the option to browse similar resources by searching key population, language, theme, and keyword tags. We welcome your contributions!
Trans women conducted 74 structured interviews with other trans women in El Salvador, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, and Haiti in 2016. We conducted qualitative applied thematic analysis to understand the nature and consequences of GBV and transphobia and descriptive quantitative analysis to identify the proportion who experienced GBV in each context.
This report aims to identify the critical enablers for community mobilisation of ICT use and support those involved in the HIV response to better articulate the added value that ICT plays in improving health outcomes and includes a summary of key trends in ICTs, case studies of current program pilots, lessons learned by the community thus far, and key considerations moving forward. It is understood that the full spectrum of needs and activities described above will not happen in a linear nor uniform way across Asia. Various factors such as local contexts, political environments, demographics of target populations, and capacity of CBOs will all impact when, where, and how ICTs are integrated into program use.
This report, which is also available in Spanish, presents high-quality evidence on the nature of violence experienced by female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and transgender women in El Salvador and proposes recommendations to inform HIV service delivery policies and programming by making it more responsive to the needs of key population victims of violence. It is one in a series of country reports on violence, key populations, and HIV in Latin America and the Caribbean.

This technical report describes the steps taken by the CHAMP project, the LINKAGES project, and community-based organizations to integrate violence response into HIV programming with and for key populations in Cameroon and shares key lessons learned from this collaborative, community-based process.
This toolkit was developed to help program implementers, particularly CBOs and others working in direct service delivery, to more effectively address safety and security challenges within their implementation of HIV programs for and with key populations. It is designed for use in hostile environments; for example, where members of key populations are criminalized and face elevated levels of stigma, discrimination, and violence. It seeks to amplify good programming through identifying and cataloging promising practices and tools, making overarching recommendations to address safety and security challenges, and providing a systematic approach (via checklists) to identify and respond to one’s own safety and security gaps. It also clearly describes the context in which safety and security investments are needed and the importance of these investments for an effective HIV response.
This case study is about the Consortium of MSM and Transgender Networks (the Consortium), a groundbreaking collaboration of global and regional networks by and for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people. It describes the Consortium’s achievements, good practices and lessons learned, with a focus on its most recent work. The case study is framed around eight key achievements from the Consortium’s action on HIV, sexual health and human rights.
Este informe presenta evidencia de alta calidad sobre la naturaleza de la violencia experimentada por trabajadoras sexuales, hombres que tienen sexo con hombres y mujeres transgénero en El Salvador y propone recomendaciones para informar las políticas y programación de entrega de servicios de VIH haciéndola más receptiva a las necesidades de la población clave víctimas de la violencia. Es uno de una serie de informes de países sobre violencia, poblaciones clave y VIH en América Latina y el Caribe.
This document: (1) outlines the acceleration initiative; (2) describes the process and the progress made under it using examples from four countries: Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Malawi, and South Sudan; and (3) discusses some of the lessons learned. This information may be of interest to those designing and implementing programs for HIV or other diseases, including public health officials and program managers, civil society organizations, advocates, funding agencies, and policymakers.
The Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care project, known in west Africa as PACTE-VIH, addresses the critical gaps in programming for key populations — specifically female sex workers and their clients, and men who have sex with men — across west Africa. As part of project closeout (July 2017), PACTE-VIH developed an "insight" series of lessons learned throughout five years of implementation. This resource highlights the importance, lessons learned, and tips for replicating activities to engage media in HIV programming with key populations.
In commemoration of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, LINKAGES’ new infographic explores how HIV programs for key populations can address violence. The infographic highlights the global prevalence of HIV and violence among key populations, the impact of violence on HIV among key populations across the cascade, and six recommendations to integrate violence prevention and response into HIV programs for key populations.
This briefing paper illustrates how Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-Being for All at All Ages, is relevant to the specific health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people. The paper highlights existing data pertinent to the health and well-being of LGBTI people across seven targets within this Goal, as well as relevant data gaps. The paper then makes a series of recommendations regarding what type of data and indicators Member States should report in order to effectively monitor progress on LGBTI health needs and ensure implementation of SDG 3 is truly universal and in line with the SDGs principle of “leave no one behind.”
L'EPOA est décrite en détail dans l'approche LINKAGES Enhanced Peer Outreach: Guide de mise en œuvre. Ce programme de formation complète le guide en offrant un programme détaillé pour la formation des agents de sensibilisation par les pairs afin de mettre en œuvre l'EPOA. Le guide se compose de ce document et d'un ensemble d'outils de formation, de documents et de présentations PowerPoint.
L'approche améliorée de sensibilisation par les pairs (EPOA) est actuellement mise à l'essai par les partenaires de LINKAGES dans plusieurs pays d'Asie, d'Afrique et des Caraïbes orientales. L'expérience jusqu'à présent montre qu'il n'y a pas d'approche "universelle" pour l'APE. C'est un modèle qui nécessite une adaptation au contexte local, et parce qu'il est nouveau, une période d'adaptation peut être nécessaire à mesure que les programmes apprennent ce qui leur convient le mieux. Ce guide décrit l'EPOA et ses avantages potentiels, les composants essentiels de l'EPOA, et les étapes impliquées dans sa mise en œuvre, y compris les défis potentiels. Il comprend une liste de contrôle pour la préparation de la mise en œuvre de l'APE (section 4), et les annexes comprennent des exemples d'outils et de formulaires de programme.
A call for manuscripts to address the urgent need to take stock of emerging evidence related to optimizing and monitoring service delivery for key populations. Submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed and those accepted will comprise a special supplement of the Journal of the International AIDS Society focusing on new evidence and data-driven strategies for improving key population programming across the HIV cascade. Deadline for submission is Dec. 1, 2017.
