HIV prevention efforts are being scaled up globally, to target sex workers as a key affected population in the HIV response. The voices and experiences of sex workers living with HIV are too often rendered invisible: this means that the additional needs and rights of sex workers living with HIV are often overlooked in forums that support the rights of general populations of people living with HIV. This paper sets out the demands of positive sex workers articulated by sex workers themselves.

Within the context of an uncontrolled epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Sub-Saharan Africa and new attempts to scale-up MSM-targeted programming, this policy brief aims to address some of these gaps by examining current access to basic HIV prevention and treatment services among MSM in Sub-Saharan Africa. These findings combine the quantitative and qualitative data from the 2012 Global Men’s Health and Rights (GMHR) study, and interviews with LGBT-led CBOs across six countries.
