Within the context of an uncontrolled epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Sub-Saharan Africa and new attempts to scale-up MSM-targeted programming, this policy brief aims to address some of these gaps by examining current access to basic HIV prevention and treatment services among MSM in Sub-Saharan Africa. These findings combine the quantitative and qualitative data from the 2012 Global Men’s Health and Rights (GMHR) study, and interviews with LGBT-led CBOs across six countries.
Community-based organization (CBO) formation and strengthening is a long process but necessary for the development of strong CBO partners for the targeted intervention programme. Pehchan provides a range of technical support and capacity building, including training packages to build necessary competencies in CBO staff. The Pehchan training curriculum was developed in 2013 to ensure that each member of the CBO staff understands technical issues and is able to address organisational and management challenges.
Le présent document contient des recommandations techniques sur les interventions qui permettent de prévenir et de traiter efficacement le VIH et les autres IST chez les travailleuses du sexe et leurs clients. Ces recommandations s’adressent aux responsables nationaux de la santé publique et aux administrateurs des programmes de lutte contre le VIH/sida et les IST, aux organisations non gouvernementales, y compris les organisations communautaires et appartenant à la société civile, ainsi qu’aux agents de santé.
Il est indispensable de cibler correctement l’investissement en faveur de la lutte contre le VIH pour y apporter une réponse efficace. Cibler les bonnes populations et les bonnes interventions à la bonne échelle n’est pas chose aisée.
The MSMGF and Johns Hopkins University in 2014 launched a new international training curriculum designed to give healthcare providers the cultural competency and clinical skills necessary to meet the health needs of gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). Following the announcement of the World Health Organization's new Consolidated Guidelines for Key Populations, the curriculum is also intended to serve as a critical vehicle to ensure the reach of WHO's efforts at the country level.
Produced by ISEAN-Hivos Program (IHP), RAMPA is the name given to this collection of stories of significant change observed by community participants in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Phillippines over two years since the beginning of IHP in 2011. The stories come frommembers of CBOs in these countries, and RAMPA shows the vulnerability and strengths of individuals in communities of sexual and gender minorities who are most-at-risk of HIV.
This toolkit was published in 2011 by MSMGF to fulfill a need that exists for men who have sex with men (MSM) everywhere to engage in advocacy locally, nationally, and globally as a means to end the HIV epidemic and to secure fulfilling, meaningful futures.
Intended as a primer for MSM advocates and service providers, this series covers key interventions and frameworks that have been central to the current global dialogues on HIV prevention, treatment and care. Topics were identified and prioritized based on results of the MSMGF's 2010 Global Men’s Health and Rights study (GMHR), which surveyed more than 5,000 MSM worldwide regarding access to and knowledge of the current spectrum of HIV prevention strategies.
This guidance document published in 2011 by PEPFAR is a response to the urgent need to strengthen and expand HIV prevention for MSM and their partners and to improve MSM’s ability to access HIV care and treatment.
What does exclusion cost? This documents illustrates preliminary findings of a case study that developed and tested an economic model to measure the cost of excluding sexual minorities, especially the LGBT community. The model examines workplace discrimination, health disparities in HIV, suicide, and depression, and concludes that they could cost societies billions of dollars.
