This success story features police outreach efforts and training to help law enforcement understand how creating fear among FSW and MSM discourages them from seeking health services for HIV and STI prevention. These efforts are part of the five-year, West Africa Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project, known in the region as PACTE-VIH, managed by FHI 360.
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.
The objective of this document is to provide technical recommendations on effective interventions for the prevention and treatment of HIV and other STIs among sex workers and their clients. The guidelines are designed for use by national public health officials and managers of HIV/AIDS and STI programmes, nongovernmental organizations including community and civil society organizations, and health workers.
Cette directive fournira des recommandations pour les partenaires régionaux et nationaux sur appropriée interventions visant à répondre aux besoins des HSH et transgenres. Il fournit également un occasion de souligner et de mettre l'accent sur la corrélation entre la prévention et de traitement en la réponse à l'épidémie de VIH chez les HSH et les personnes transgenres, en particulier à la lumière de plus en plus évident sur le bénéfice préventif de la thérapie antirétrovirale (ART). Ceci peut conduire à une réduction substantielle de la transmission au niveau de la population.
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.
