This report aims to identify the critical enablers for community mobilisation of ICT use and support those involved in the HIV response to better articulate the added value that ICT plays in improving health outcomes and includes a summary of key trends in ICTs, case studies of current program pilots, lessons learned by the community thus far, and key considerations moving forward. It is understood that the full spectrum of needs and activities described above will not happen in a linear nor uniform way across Asia. Various factors such as local contexts, political environments, demographics of target populations, and capacity of CBOs will all impact when, where, and how ICTs are integrated into program use.
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.
