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.

In Laos, LINKAGES introduced a community-based model of HIV testing with OraQuick—a relatively new rapid oral HIV test that requires neither specialized equipment nor highly trained providers to administer it. Community-based supporters (CBSs) administered the tests and provided referrals for additional services along the HIV cascade. After the first three months of implementation, CBSs proved that they could reach significant numbers of MSM and trans women with HIV testing using OraQuick.
