To start, choose a topic from the dropdown menus below to generate a list of those resources — then use the other filters to narrow your results. After you have generated a list of resources, you may select specific resources by clicking on the headline/title of that reource. Indiviudual resource pages offer you the option to browse similar resources by searching key population, language, theme, and keyword tags. We welcome your contributions!
Standard operating procedures (SOPs) and minimum standards will support the design and implementation of quality HIV interventions in Mozambique. The SOPs and minimum standards will standardize and quantify the intervention package and define the services and ensure uniformity of terms, definitions and systems.
The World Health Organization (WHO) anticipates releasing updated guidance on oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), containing tenofovir (TDF), as an additional HIV prevention choice. The new guidance is likely to be significantly broader than previously and creates real opportunities to move forward with implementing PrEP as part of comprehensive HIV programmes. This publication, produced collaboratively between UNAIDS, WHO and AVAC, is intended to complement WHO recommendations and support the optimal use of oral PrEP to protect individuals and contribute to ending the AIDS epidemic.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is effective in preventing HIV transmission. Oral PrEP has been evaluated in gay men and other men who have sex with men, transgender women, heterosexual men and women and people who inject drugs. This question-and-answer document is intended to complement WHO recommendations (2012) and support the optimal use of oral PrEP to protect individuals and contribute to ending the AIDS epidemic.
This technical brief summarizes essential information and existing WHO recommendations for HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care among transgender populations.
This March 2015 meeting held in Johannesburg was a forum for information-sharing and advocacy agenda-setting through lively debates and discussions.

This brief seeks to help policymakers and program implementers understand and address the HIV needs and human rights of sex workers.

This joint briefing paper by NSWP and INPUD highlights the specific needs and rights of sex workers who use drugs, as a community that spans two key populations. This document provides an overview of some of the most endemic and substantive ways in which sex workers who use drugs face double criminalisation and associated police harassment, intersectional stigma, compounded marginalisation and social exclusion, heightened interference and harassment from healthcare and other service providers, infantilisation, pathologisation, and an associated undermining of agency, choice, and self-determination.
The Standard Operating Procedures in this document provide guidance on project management as well as behavioral, biomedical, and structural interventions necessary to provide quality services that would improve lives of female sex workers in Zambia, and provides the reader with the context for developing the strategy/activity as well as the structure, individual responsibilities, and monitoring plan.
The Blueprint is a document with far-reaching potential and applications in trans health and human rights in the region. The purpose of the Blueprint is to strengthen and enhance the policy-related, clinical, and public health responses for trans people in Asia and the Pacific.
NSWP hopes that this advocacy toolkit will highlight the harms associated with this approach of criminalisation, both in relation to the simplistic and crude understandings of sex work and of sex workers that are used to justify the law, and in relation to the direct outcomes of the resulting legal framework of criminalising the purchase of sex. In contrast to claims that the Swedish model is a necessary and effective approach in protecting women from violence and exploitation, sex workers in Sweden note worrying consequences of the law in terms of their safety and wellbeing.
123 peer-to-peer in-depth qualitative interviews with female, male and transgender sex workers and key informants was carried out in Indonesia (Jakarta), Myanmar (Yangon), Nepal (Kathmandu) and Sri Lanka (Colombo). “The research provides sound evidence that the violence that sex workers experience denies them their fundamental human rights and contributes to the spread of HIV,” said Meena Saraswathi Seshu, from Centre for Advocacy on Stigma and Marginalisation, one of the co-authors of the report.
This tool supplements the World Health Organization Consolidated Guidelines on HIV Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Care for Key Populations; it provides technical guidance to assist countries in planning and monitoring efforts to address HIV among key populations (KP), with specific guidance on monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the comprehensive package of interventions to address HIV among KP.
