Female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and transgender women—collectively referred to as key populations—are disproportionately affected by gender-based violence and HIV, yet little is known about the violence they face, its gender-based origins, and responses to gender-based violence. The purpose of this study was to understand the nature and consequences of gender-based violence experienced, to inform HIV policies and programming and to help protect key populations’ human rights.
This report, which is also available in Spanish, presents high-quality evidence on the nature of violence experienced by female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and transgender women in El Salvador and proposes recommendations to inform HIV service delivery policies and programming by making it more responsive to the needs of key population victims of violence. It is one in a series of country reports on violence, key populations, and HIV in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This technical report describes the steps taken by the CHAMP project, the LINKAGES project, and community-based organizations to integrate violence response into HIV programming with and for key populations in Cameroon and shares key lessons learned from this collaborative, community-based process.
This case study is about the Consortium of MSM and Transgender Networks (the Consortium), a groundbreaking collaboration of global and regional networks by and for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people. It describes the Consortium’s achievements, good practices and lessons learned, with a focus on its most recent work. The case study is framed around eight key achievements from the Consortium’s action on HIV, sexual health and human rights.
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 importance, lessons learned, and tips for replicating activities to engage media in HIV programming with key populations.
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.

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.
This success story documents the Third Regional Meeting on Key Populations in Yaoundé, Burkina Faso, which focused on the urgent needs of populations most vulnerable to HIV. The September 2016 meeting was hosted by the PACTE-VIH project and broke new ground by bringing together leaders from many small communities of men having sex with men and female sex workers—those among the most vulnerable to HIV—to partner with public health professionals, ministers and other senior government officials, international officials, and donor agencies.
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.
"(Even) Greater than the Sum of Its Parts" documents the impact of the Consortium’s efforts and describes the added value of collaboration. The primary context of the case study is the Consortium’s implementation of two grants by the Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) over the past two years. The case study offers multiple examples of how working in a Consortium has benefited member networks and MSM and transgender communities in general.
Afin de combler les lacunes importantes dans les programmes clés de population en Afrique de l'Ouest, l'USAID s'est associée à FHI 360 pour développer PACTE-VIH, dans le but de créer «un projet réplicable qui atteint les populations clés avec le VIH et les tests de STI tout en réduisant la stigmatisation en créant un environnement propice MSM et FSW au Burkina Faso et au Togo. "PACTE-VIH est un accord de cinq ans avec deux sous-partenaires au Togo et 10 sous-partenaires au Burkina Faso. En réponse aux besoins évidents de la région de l'Afrique de l'Ouest pour élargir les projets qui ont atteint effectivement des populations clés avec des programmes de lutte contre le VIH (et les résultats prometteurs du projet PACTE-VIH, maintenant dans l'année 4 de la mise en œuvre), USAID et PACTE-VIH A développé cette trousse de réplication pour fournir des outils, des leçons apprises et des étapes pour la mise en œuvre du projet dans un format convivial. Également disponible en anglais.
This brief was developed to encourage and inform gender-integrated HIV prevention, care, and treatment programming for men who have sex with men in Kenya. It can be used by individuals and organizations that deliver services to men who have sex with men; those participating in program design and monitoring and evaluation; and decision makers and funders supporting the programs. It is one in a series of briefs on the Nexus of Gender and HIV among key populations most affected by HIV: men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, and people who inject drugs. Information relevant to individuals who are members of multiple key populations can be found across the series.
To anticipate where the MSM, HIV, and human rights movements might be in another 25 years, the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) carried out a foresight scenario planning process with several dozen of its stakeholders and partners. MSMGF began with a simple but fundamental question: “What will the global MSM and HIV movements look like in 25 years?” The scenario planning process and its outcomes are documented in MSMGF’s latest publication.
