CLAC's Resource Library contains many resources on key populations. To make a general search, add your keywords to the Search box located in the upper left corner of the website. For a more detailed search that yields fewer (and more relevant) results, use the various search filters on this page. To start, choose a topic from the dropdown menus below to generate a list of those resources — then use the other filters to narrow your results. After you have generated a list of resources, you may select specific resources by clicking on the headline/title of that reource. Indiviudual resource pages offer you the option to browse similar resources by searching key population, language, theme, and keyword tags. We welcome your contributions!
This toolkit was developed to help program implementers, particularly CBOs and others working in direct service delivery, to more effectively address safety and security challenges within their implementation of HIV programs for and with key populations. It is designed for use in hostile environments; for example, where members of key populations are criminalized and face elevated levels of stigma, discrimination, and violence. It seeks to amplify good programming through identifying and cataloging promising practices and tools, making overarching recommendations to address safety and security challenges, and providing a systematic approach (via checklists) to identify and respond to one’s own safety and security gaps. It also clearly describes the context in which safety and security investments are needed and the importance of these investments for an effective HIV response.
This toolkit provides practical guidance to governments, funders, civil society organizations and other implementing partners on conducting a gender analysis and using findings to inform HIV prevention, care and treatment programs with key populations. It outlines considerations and steps for conducting a gender analysis; explores how to engage with stakeholders, including key population members, in a meaningful partnership; shares lessons learned from a comprehensive gender analysis in Kenya and an abridged gender analysis in Cameroon; and provides tools and resources for conducting a gender analysis with key populations.
This toolkit focuses on preventing HIV among key populations – sex workers, people who inject drugs, transgender people, and gay men and other men who have sex with men. Globally, key populations are 10-24 times more at risk of contracting HIV than adults in the general population In 2015, infections among key populations accounted for 36% of all new infections. There are three main aims of this toolkit:
- To equip community activists with the knowledge and skills that they need around PrEP, advocacy and community mobilization so that they are able to mobilize their communities to demand PrEP
- To enable community PrEP activists to advocate with their governments and service providers to allow key populations access to PrEP services
- To ensure that these services are provided in a manner that is aﬀordable, appropriate to their needs, and addresses access barriers.
The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for programs implementing peer navigation as part of a core package of HIV-related interventions for key populations. It is part of the LINKAGES Peer Navigation Toolkit, which also includes a facilitator’s guide, PowerPoint presentations, and additional resources designed to be used in a variety of contexts, according to local needs. There is another training docment, the Peer Navigation Training Facilitator's Guide Core Modules, which complements this implementation guide.
The purpose of this toolkit is to train HIV-positive peers to engage and retain people living with HIV (PLHIV) in the health care system. It is intended to complement the Peer Navigation for Key Populations Implementation Guide, which offers guidance for programs implementing peer navigation as part of a core package of HIV-related interventions for key populations. It is part of the LINKAGES Peer Navigation Toolkit, which also includes a facilitator’s guide, PowerPoint presentations, and additional resources designed to be used in a variety of contexts, according to local needs.
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.
This toolkit specifically aims to address the capacity gaps identified at the ARASA knowledge-sharing and networking consultations. It provides user-friendly guidance, case studies, and tools specifically directed at strengthening and promoting advocacy towards the rights of LGBTI individuals in Southern and East Africa. The toolkit adopts a rights-based approach to SOGI rights advocacy, consistent with ARASA’s approach to all its work, and focuses on promoting universal access to SRHR services including HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for LGBTI persons.
NSWP hopes that this advocacy toolkit will highlight the harms associated with this approach of criminalisation, both in relation to the simplistic and crude understandings of sex work and of sex workers that are used to justify the law, and in relation to the direct outcomes of the resulting legal framework of criminalising the purchase of sex. In contrast to claims that the Swedish model is a necessary and effective approach in protecting women from violence and exploitation, sex workers in Sweden note worrying consequences of the law in terms of their safety and wellbeing.
The Advocacy for Community Treatment (ACT) Toolkit facilitates community activists to become effective advocates for HIV treatment access. It includes a special focus on supporting key populations and ensuring everyone’s right to health is respected. Topics covered in the participatory Toolkit include: the science of HIV, the relationship between human rights and treatment, how trade impacts the availability of medicines, financing for health, and community advocacy planning.
The GLAM Toolkit provides background on the status of lubricant access in Africa and strategies for civil society to secure sustainable supplies of safe, condom-compatible lube.
This amfAR resource is intended for HIV-related community-based projects serving gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender individuals in low- and middle-income countries.
This toolkit was published in 2011 by MSMGF to fulfill a need that exists for men who have sex with men (MSM) everywhere to engage in advocacy locally, nationally, and globally as a means to end the HIV epidemic and to secure fulfilling, meaningful futures.
