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!
Members of key populations experience disproportionate burdens of both HIV and violence. These epidemics are linked—violence increases HIV vulnerability and poses a barrier to HIV testing, disclosure and adherence to antiretroviral therapy. Addressing both public health challenges simultaneously is an important strategy for epidemic control and the protection of human rights.
This technical brief summarizes essential information and existing WHO recommendations for HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care among transgender populations.
This tool supplements the World Health Organization Consolidated Guidelines on HIV Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Care for Key Populations; it provides technical guidance to assist countries in planning and monitoring efforts to address HIV among key populations (KP), with specific guidance on monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the comprehensive package of interventions to address HIV among KP.
In this new consolidated guidelines document on HIV prevention, diagnoses, treatment and care for key populations, WHO brings together all existing guidance relevant to key populations - gay men and men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, people in prisons and other closed settings, sex workers, and transgender people.
There is need for sustained HIV prevention, care, and treatment, especially among key populations (KP) who comprise as much as 40 percent or more of new HIV infections. As activities are scaled up and more stakeholders and actors are involved in the provision of KP interventions, there is the need to ensure that a standardised set of services is provided to all KPs in a non-stigmatising and confidential manner. These Standard Operating Procedures have been developed as one of the essential and fundamental activities outlined in the National MARP Strategic Plan 2011-2015. They are designed to systematise the strategies employed under the NSP 2011–2015 and its M&E Plan.
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.
