This toolkit focuses on preventing HIV among key populations – sex workers, people who inject drugs, transgender people, and gay men and other men who have sex with men. Globally, key populations are 10-24 times more at risk of contracting HIV than adults in the general population In 2015, infections among key populations accounted for 36% of all new infections. There are three main aims of this toolkit:
- To equip community activists with the knowledge and skills that they need around PrEP, advocacy and community mobilization so that they are able to mobilize their communities to demand PrEP
- To enable community PrEP activists to advocate with their governments and service providers to allow key populations access to PrEP services
- To ensure that these services are provided in a manner that is aﬀordable, appropriate to their needs, and addresses access barriers.
