Boîte à outils de l’activiste: La PrEP pour les populations clés Boîte à outils de l’activiste: La PrEP pour les populations clés
Type of content Program guidance, Advocacy

Cette boîte à outils se concentre sur la prévention du VIH parmi les populations clés - les travailleurs du sexe, les consommateurs de drogues injectables, les personnes transgenres, les hommes gais et les autres hommes ayant des rapports sexuels avec des hommes. À l'échelle mondiale, les populations clés sont 10 à 24 fois plus exposées au risque de contracter le VIH que les adultes de la population générale En 2015, les infections parmi les populations clés représentaient 36% de toutes les nouvelles infections. Cette boîte à outils a trois objectifs principaux:

  • Doter les activistes communautaires des connaissances et des compétences dont ils ont besoin en matière de PrEP, de plaidoyer et de mobilisation de la communauté pour qu'ils soient en mesure de mobiliser leurs communautés pour exiger la PrEP
  • Permettre aux activistes communautaires de la PrEP de plaider auprès de leurs gouvernements et de leurs fournisseurs de services afin de permettre aux populations clés d'accéder aux services de PrEP
  • Veiller à ce que ces services soient fournis d'une manière ordonnable, adaptée à leurs besoins et aux obstacles d'accès.
Key Considerations for Community-led Demand Creation for Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) among Key PopulationsKey Considerations for Community-led Demand Creation for Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) among Key Populations Key Considerations for Community-led Demand Creation for Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) among Key Populations
Type of content Advocacy

In 2017, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) embarked on an initiative to develop and implement innovative community-led demand creation solutions for access to and use of oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) of HIV by key populations. This initiative included a preliminary literature review of global community perspectives on PrEP, the Community-led Consultative Think Tank Meeting on PrEP, and development of the Key Population Activist Toolkit on PrEP. This document includes the seven points that were developed from this consultative process and articulates key PrEP messages from key population networks and PrEP experts.

Key Population Activist Toolkit Key Population Activist Toolkit
Type of content Program guidance, Advocacy

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.
Manual deActivismo para Poblaciones Clave en PrEP Manual de Activismo para Poblaciones Clave en PrEP
Type of content Program guidance, Advocacy

Este conjunto de herramientas se enfoca en prevenir el VIH entre las poblaciones clave: trabajadores sexuales, personas que se inyectan drogas, personas transgénero y hombres homosexuales y otros hombres que tienen sexo con hombres. A nivel mundial, las poblaciones clave tienen entre 10 y 24 veces más riesgo de contraer el VIH que los adultos en la población general. En 2015, las infecciones entre las poblaciones clave representaron el 36% de todas las nuevas infecciones. Hay tres objetivos principales de este conjunto de herramientas:

  • Para equipar a los activistas comunitarios con el conocimiento y las habilidades que necesitan en torno a la PrEP, la promoción y la movilización de la comunidad para que puedan movilizar a sus comunidades para exigir la PrEP.
  • Para permitir que los activistas comunitarios de PrEP aboguen con sus gobiernos y proveedores de servicios para permitir que las poblaciones clave accedan a los servicios de PrEP
  • Para garantizar que estos servicios se brinden de una manera que sea aceptable, que se ajuste a sus necesidades y que aborde las barreras de acceso.
What's out there on PrEP: a literature review What's Out There on PrEP: a Literature Review
Type of content Research, Program guidance

The role of community in the uptake of PrEP is vital as has been highlighted throughout this review. The discourse has been most prominent at global policy level, and as PrEP as a viable prevention strategy takes hold at country level, ensuring that PrEP is carefully integrated into existing HIV programmes in close partnership with KPs themselves will be the next challenge towards ensuring maximum community-led demand for PrEP. This literature review and subsequent steps in the ITPC’s community-led demand creation process upholds ITPC’s efforts to integrate the voice of community in the discourse on PrEP implementation and rollout.

Type of content Training, Research, Program guidance

The World Health Organization (WHO) anticipates releasing updated guidance on oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), containing tenofovir (TDF), as an additional HIV prevention choice. The new guidance is likely to be significantly broader than previously and creates real opportunities to move forward with implementing PrEP as part of comprehensive HIV programmes. This publication, produced collaboratively between UNAIDS, WHO and AVAC, is intended to complement WHO recommendations and support the optimal use of oral PrEP to protect individuals and contribute to ending the AIDS epidemic.

New Prevention Technologies and Their Implications for Sex Workers: Briefing Paper 04 New Prevention Technologies and Their Implications for Sex Workers: Briefing Paper 04

This NSWP briefing paper provides an overview of the new HIV prevention tools on the horizon, including microbicides, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), vaccines, and ‘treatment for prevention’. It details the possible positive and negative impacts of these as identified by sex worker organisations. Finally, it explores how sex workers’ advocacy can influence the development and introduction of these tools in ways that maximise usefulness and minimise risk to sex workers.
