Connecting Asia: Mobilising a community-led HIV response using Information and Communications TechnologyConnecting Asia: Mobilising a community-led HIV response using Information and Communications Technology Connecting Asia: Mobilising a Community-led HIV Response Using Information and Communications Technology
Type of content Program guidance

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.

Safety and Security Toolkit: Strengthening the Implementation of HIV Programs for and with Key Populations Safety and Security Toolkit: Strengthening the Implementation of HIV Programs for and with Key Populations
Type of content Program guidance

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.

Type of content Program guidance

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.

Agenda 2030: For LGBTI Health and Well-being Agenda 2030: For LGBTI Health and Well-being
Type of content Program guidance, Advocacy

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.”

Approche Améliorée De Sensibilisation Par Les Pairs, Epoa De Linkages Guide De Mise En Œuvre Approche Améliorée De Sensibilisation Par Les Pairs, Epoa De Linkages Guide De Mise En Œuvre
Type of content Training, Program guidance

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.

Community Partnership Resources (CPR) Online Learning Platform Community Partnership Resources (CPR) Online Learning Platform
Type of content Guidelines, Training

MSMGF has published its complete digital library of video lectures covering all six chapters of the MSM Implementation Toolkit (MSMIT) in its online learning platform, CPR (Community Partnership Resources) for health professionals. The video lectures are a free method of disseminating the content of the MSMIT via a series of 32 guided lectures on YouTube. CPR is part of an overall strategy to promote the roll out and uptake of normative guidance concerning gay men’s health. The goal is to enable health care providers to deliver high-quality HIV related services for gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men. The tool can also be used by advocates, implementers and policy makers to increase demand for comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services among gay and bisexual men.

Community-led Consultative Think Tank Meeting on PrEP Access and Use Community-led Consultative Think Tank Meeting on PrEP Access and Use

The two-day event brought together more than 45 participants from 20 different countries representing civil society, key populations, governments, and technical expert groups. Open discussions and working groups focused on key considerations of PrEP implementation across key population groups, and the development of innovative strategies to create better access to PrEP for communities.

Differentiated Care for Antiretroviral Therapy for Key Populations: Case Examples from the LINKAGES Project Differentiated Care for Antiretroviral Therapy for Key Populations: Case Examples from the LINKAGES Project
Type of content Success story

An estimated 37 million people are living with HIV today. Differentiated antiretroviral therapy (ART) delivery, a part of differentiated care, aims to improve retention and viral suppression by optimizing models of drug and care delivery. Models fall into four categories: health care worker-managed group; client-managed group; facility-based individual; and out-of-facility individual. The case studies presented here from FHI 360’s LINKAGES projects in Botswana, Haiti, Kenya, and Malawi are examples of the out-of-facility individual model, sometimes referred to as the community model.
