Applying a Gender Lens in HIV Programming for Key Populations in Ghana Applying a Gender Lens in HIV Programming for Key Populations in Ghana

Key populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Ghana routinely experience various forms of abuse — including sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), discrimination, stigma, and human rights violations — simply because of their sexual orientation or sex-related profession. Men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs) are especially likely to experience such abuses — alongside threats, coercion, arbitrary restraint, andeconomic deprivation — because their behavior does not conform to what society considers acceptable roles for men and women.

Building Local Institutional Capacity to Serve Key Populations and People Living with HIV in Ghana Building Local Institutional Capacity to Serve Key Populations and People Living with HIV in Ghana

Although HIV prevalence in Ghana has experienced a slow decline in the past decade, there remains a significant epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs) in particular. HIV programming efforts of local nongovernmental organizations (NGO) required capacity building and organizational development to strengthen their ability to effectively implement, monitor, and evaluate HIV programs for key populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV). In response, FHI 360 Ghana was awarded Strengthening HIV/AIDS Response Partnership and Evidenced-based Results (SHARPER) in 2010 by USAID to reduce HIV transmission among MSM, FSWs, PLHIV and the sex partners of these groups.
