CLAC's Resource Library contains many resources on key populations. To make a general search, add your keywords to the Search box located in the upper left corner of the website. For a more detailed search that yields fewer (and more relevant) results, use the various search filters on this page. 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!
This success story focuses on training workshops to raise awareness among media owners, editors, and reporters about the discrimination and violence toward key populations.The workshops—sponsored by the USAID-funded Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project (PACTE-VIH)—were the result of alliances formed between the media, HIV responders and members of vulnerable communities.
This success story documents the use of Unique Identifier Codes (UICs) developed by the PACTE-VIH project to guarantee anonymity and increase precision in treatment of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among key populations in Burkina Faso and Togo. With the UIC card, individuals can visit any health services center to get treatment and advice without risk.
The role of community in the uptake of PrEP is vital as has been highlighted throughout this review. The discourse has been most prominent at global policy level, and as PrEP as a viable prevention strategy takes hold at country level, ensuring that PrEP is carefully integrated into existing HIV programmes in close partnership with KPs themselves will be the next challenge towards ensuring maximum community-led demand for PrEP. This literature review and subsequent steps in the ITPC’s community-led demand creation process upholds ITPC’s eﬀorts to integrate the voice of community in the discourse on PrEP implementation and rollout.
The aim of the Advocacy for Community Treatment (ACT) toolkit is to support and train community activists to advocate effectively and passionately on access to treatment for people living with HIV, including those from key populations.
Key populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Ghana routinely experience various forms of abuse — including sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), discrimination, stigma, and human rights violations — simply because of their sexual orientation or sex-related profession. Men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs) are especially likely to experience such abuses — alongside threats, coercion, arbitrary restraint, andeconomic deprivation — because their behavior does not conform to what society considers acceptable roles for men and women.
Although HIV prevalence in Ghana has experienced a slow decline in the past decade, there remains a significant epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs) in particular. HIV programming efforts of local nongovernmental organizations (NGO) required capacity building and organizational development to strengthen their ability to effectively implement, monitor, and evaluate HIV programs for key populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV). In response, FHI 360 Ghana was awarded Strengthening HIV/AIDS Response Partnership and Evidenced-based Results (SHARPER) in 2010 by USAID to reduce HIV transmission among MSM, FSWs, PLHIV and the sex partners of these groups.
Cette publication fournit des conseils aux gouvernements, aux organisations de la société civile (organisations non gouvernementales et les organisations communautaires), et d'autres partenaires de mise en œuvre de prévention du VIH, les soins et les programmes de traitement avec les populations clés. Il est conçu pour aider ces programmes car ils établissent des systèmes de surveillance qui sont utilisés par les travailleurs de première ligne, y compris les travailleurs pairs de sensibilisation, les superviseurs du personnel de sensibilisation, les gestionnaires de programme, et d'autres pour comprendre la performance. Disponible en anglais.
Over the past 10 years, FHI 360 has implemented and refined a combination of outreach strategies — through the USAID-funded SHARP (2004-2009), SHARPER (2010-2014), and LINKAGES (2014-2019) projects — to overcome the structural barriers that prohibit key populations from safely accessing HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. Peer education, helpline counseling, social-media outreach, and outreach events have helped to fulfill a mandate of enrolling key populations in HIV care and treatment in Ghana.
LINKAGES Integrated Technical Organizational Capacity Assessment (ITOCA) and Action Planning: Facilitator’s Guide is designed to train LINKAGES’ teams to implement ITOCA. The activities are illustrative, and every facilitator should adapt and adjust his/her content to match the organizational culture and collaboration style, as well as his/her personal preferences for working with groups. The ITOCA is facilitated through a workshop that usually takes three days. This guide covers 14 ITOCA capacity areas, is written from the facilitator’s/workshop planner’s perspective, and includes directives on how to facilitate the ITOCA, including the discussion activities, collection of scores, results analysis and debrief, and development of the ISP.
This publication provides guidance to governments, civil-society organizations (nongovernmental organizations and community-based organizations), and other partners implementing HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs with key populations. It is designed to assist these programs as they establish monitoring systems that are used by front line workers, including peer outreach workers, staff outreach supervisors, program managers, and others to understand performance. It includes comprehensive tools and forms that various levels of staff can use to collect and analyze data to manage and improve the program. It is also available in French.
To address critical gaps in key population programming in West Africa, USAID paired with FHI 360 to develop PACTE-VIH, with the goal of creating "a replicable project that reaches key populations with HIV and STI testing while reducing stigma by creating an enabling environment for MSM and FSWs in Burkina Faso and Togo." PACTE-VIH is a five-year agreement with two sub-partners in Togo, and 10 sub-partners in Burkina Faso.
This policy brief presents up-to-date evidence about transgender health in the Philippines based on the IHBSS survey conducted in Cebu City, on the Femina Trans Initiative and on the results of the focus group discussions conducted in the Philippines that were part of the aforementioned regional assessment.
This guide is designed to assess the ability of a country’s stakeholders (including government, development partners, and civil society) to lead and sustain HIV epidemic control among KPs as donors transition to different levels and types of funding.
