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.
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.
This policy brief addresses the hostile human rights environment faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people throughout the world. It outlines the type of legal and policy measures that fuel that environment and describes their devastating impact on communities and organisations, as well as programmes for health and HIV.

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.
Extensive barriers remain to sufficiently addressing transgender needs in the HIV epidemic, and little work has been done to document good practices for engaging key donors such as the Global Fund.This report, commissioned by the IRGT: A Global Network of Transgender Women and HIV, examines relevant literature and identifies key themes through six semi-structured interviews with transgender community activists, civil society organization representatives, and officials from the Global Fund and other major HIV donors.
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.
