From 2015 to 2017, the LINKAGES project, UNDP, and the University of the West Indies collaborated with gay men and other men who have sex with men, female sex workers, and transgender women in El Salvador, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados to conduct participatory research on gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV. Key population members were trained as data collectors and conducted 278 structured interviews with peers. This success story, which is also available in French and Spanish, highlights study findings and describes how LINKAGES, UNDP, and local partners have used the research to address GBV within HIV service delivery policies and programming.
