Published in Fall 2017 by MSMGF, NSWP, INPUD, GATE, IRTG, GNP+ and ICW, this resource concludes with a call to action for renewed commitment to HIV primary prevention strategies that are proactive, address upstream factors, and re-center communities most impacted by HIV. Both the resource and call to action push for HIV and other sexual health services to be led by or conducted with communities. Further, the resource outlines core principles of practice for the development of policies and programmes that meaningfully address the HIV epidemic and pushes for funding for community-led responses to HIV.
The purpose of this document is to assist those responsible for the continuum of HIV services to construct, analyze, and use the HIV cascade framework to improve HIV services by KPs and retention in those services. Intended audiences include ministries of health and other government agencies, nongovernmental and civil society organizations, HIV program managers, and researchers.
This brief is dedicated to understanding access to HIV services among MSM and the implications for strengthening the global HIV response.
Sexual minority communities in India have long faced challenges in accessing public services, including healthcare. Given that HIV places a significant burden on male-born sexual minorities around the world, the range of HIV-related services is supposedly one of the interventions that specially targets them. However, questions abound on the nature of these interventions. This document highlights these questions and draws largely from a series of focus group discussions with male-born sexual minorities conducted by sexual minority activists in 11 districts in Karnataka, India.
Some of the organisations profiled in this NSWP global report on sex worker-led HIV programming have made significant headway in making local health care and social service providers, along with law enforcement officers, aware of the sometimes complex issues affecting sex workers, resulting in more effective and welcoming services. Despite these successes, the organisations themselves often operate on a shoestring budget and in an unfavourable political climate which sees widespread stigma and hostility towards sex workers and other marginalised groups.
