This document summarizes the findings of an exploratory study on coping strategies and life choices of couples in South Africa, Tanzania, and the Ukraine living in long-term serodiscordant relationships (i.e., couples in which one partner is HIV-positive and the other partner HIV-negative) undertaken by the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), and funded by World Health Organization (WHO).

This strategic framework supports the 'Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections among Children by 2015 and Keeping their Mothers Alive'. It offers guidance for preventing HIV infections and unintended pregnancies – both essential strategies for improving maternal and child health, and eliminating new paediatric HIV infections. The framework should be used in conjunction with other related guidance that together address all four prongs of eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
This generic rapid assessment tool, published in 2009 by multiple NGOs and civil society groups, covers a broad range of linkages issues, such as policy, systems, and services. By design, it aims to provide a guide for assessing linkages that can be adapted as needed to regional or national contexts based on a number of factors. Countries are encouraged to review the questions and the scope of the assessment and modify it according to the local situation.This tool can be used as a “standalone” activity or can be integrated into a larger review of the national response.

Previous systematic reviews have identified a high prevalence of HIV infection in transgender women in the U.S. and among sex workers. However, little is known about the burden of HIV infection in transgender women worldwide. This 2013 Lancet article aims to better assess the relative HIV burden among all transgender women worldwide, and offers a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies that assessed HIV infection burdens in transgender women published between 2000-2011.
