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.
Cette boîte à outils se concentre sur la prévention du VIH parmi les populations clés - les travailleurs du sexe, les consommateurs de drogues injectables, les personnes transgenres, les hommes gais et les autres hommes ayant des rapports sexuels avec des hommes. À l'échelle mondiale, les populations clés sont 10 à 24 fois plus exposées au risque de contracter le VIH que les adultes de la population générale En 2015, les infections parmi les populations clés représentaient 36% de toutes les nouvelles infections. Cette boîte à outils a trois objectifs principaux:
- Doter les activistes communautaires des connaissances et des compétences dont ils ont besoin en matière de PrEP, de plaidoyer et de mobilisation de la communauté pour qu'ils soient en mesure de mobiliser leurs communautés pour exiger la PrEP
- Permettre aux activistes communautaires de la PrEP de plaider auprès de leurs gouvernements et de leurs fournisseurs de services afin de permettre aux populations clés d'accéder aux services de PrEP
- Veiller à ce que ces services soient fournis d'une manière ordonnable, adaptée à leurs besoins et aux obstacles d'accès.
A call for manuscripts to address the urgent need to take stock of emerging evidence related to optimizing and monitoring service delivery for key populations. Submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed and those accepted will comprise a special supplement of the Journal of the International AIDS Society focusing on new evidence and data-driven strategies for improving key population programming across the HIV cascade. Deadline for submission is Dec. 1, 2017.
This document provides an overview of UNITAID and outlines the role, terms of office, qualifications and commitments required to serve as a Member of the Communities Living with and Affected by HIV, TB and Malaria and those Coinfected with HIV and HCV Delegation to the Board of UNITAID.
To discuss key considerations of PrEP implementation across key population groups, and develop strategies and solutions on community-led KP demand creation, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) hosted a global community-led consultation on PrEP. 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.
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.
This resource list explains international support available for human rights defenders and organizations that work with LGBTI people and men who have sex with men, sex workers, or people who inject drugs in the case of human rights violations or security threats. It is meant for digital use only. PLEASE DO NOT PRINT.
The EPOA is described in detail in the LINKAGES Enhanced Peer Outreach Approach:Implementation Guide. This training curriculum complements the guide by offering a detailed curriculum for training peer outreach workers to implement the EPOA. The guide consists of this document and a set of training tools, handouts, and PowerPoint presentations.
This toolkit provides practical guidance to governments, funders, civil society organizations and other implementing partners on conducting a gender analysis and using findings to inform HIV prevention, care and treatment programs with key populations. It outlines considerations and steps for conducting a gender analysis; explores how to engage with stakeholders, including key population members, in a meaningful partnership; shares lessons learned from a comprehensive gender analysis in Kenya and an abridged gender analysis in Cameroon; and provides tools and resources for conducting a gender analysis with key populations.
This document illuminates the position of the advocacy platform (established by The Global Forum on MSM & HIV, together with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, and with representatives from UNAIDS Secretariat, UNDP, UNFPA, the World Bank, and WHO), on four advocacy priorities identified during the Bangkok convening, and offers examples of messaging, potential partners, and data necessary to coordinate action.
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 background, outcomes, challenges, lessons learned, and recommendations for implementing mHealth programming for HIV prevention with key populations.
This tool offers practical advice on how to design and implement programs and approaches for and with people who inject drugs, across the full continuum of HIV and HCV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care, aligned with UN guidance. It contains examples of good practice from around the world that may support efforts in planning programs and services, and describes issues that should be considered and how to overcome challenges. The intended users of this tool are public-health officials and managers of HIV and harm reduction programmes; nongovernmental, community and civil-society organizations, including networks of people who use drugs; and health workers. It will also be of interest to advocates and activists for the rights of people who use drugs, and to international funding agencies and health policy-makers.
This independent review, commissioned by the Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) Department at the Global Fund Secretariat and published by MSMGF, shares findings, conclusions, and recommendations for enhancing the meaningful engagement of communities in all phases of Global Fund grants, with an emphasis on grant making and grant implementation. The review synthesizes lessons learned and good practices for how communities engage meaningfully, and identifies key principles and strategic actions the Global Fund can take to ensure greater accountability between communities, Country Coordinating Mechanisms, other key stakeholders, and the Global Fund itself.
In 2017, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) embarked on an initiative to develop and implement innovative community-led demand creation solutions for access to and use of oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) of HIV by key populations. This initiative included a preliminary literature review of global community perspectives on PrEP, the Community-led Consultative Think Tank Meeting on PrEP, and development of the Key Population Activist Toolkit on PrEP. This document includes the seven points that were developed from this consultative process and articulates key PrEP messages from key population networks and PrEP experts.
This toolkit focuses on preventing HIV among key populations – sex workers, people who inject drugs, transgender people, and gay men and other men who have sex with men. Globally, key populations are 10-24 times more at risk of contracting HIV than adults in the general population In 2015, infections among key populations accounted for 36% of all new infections. There are three main aims of this toolkit:
- To equip community activists with the knowledge and skills that they need around PrEP, advocacy and community mobilization so that they are able to mobilize their communities to demand PrEP
- To enable community PrEP activists to advocate with their governments and service providers to allow key populations access to PrEP services
- To ensure that these services are provided in a manner that is aﬀordable, appropriate to their needs, and addresses access barriers.
