Female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and transgender women—collectively referred to as key populations—are disproportionately affected by gender-based violence and HIV, yet little is known about the violence they face, its gender-based origins, and responses to gender-based violence. The purpose of this study was to understand the nature and consequences of gender-based violence experienced, to inform HIV policies and programming and to help protect key populations’ human rights.
Trans women conducted 74 structured interviews with other trans women in El Salvador, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, and Haiti in 2016. We conducted qualitative applied thematic analysis to understand the nature and consequences of GBV and transphobia and descriptive quantitative analysis to identify the proportion who experienced GBV in each context.
This case study is about the Consortium of MSM and Transgender Networks (the Consortium), a groundbreaking collaboration of global and regional networks by and for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people. It describes the Consortium’s achievements, good practices and lessons learned, with a focus on its most recent work. The case study is framed around eight key achievements from the Consortium’s action on HIV, sexual health and human rights.
Transgender (trans) women experience gender-based violence (GBV) throughout their lives, which impedes their access to services and contributes to poor health outcomes and quality of life. To inform policies and health programs, trans women worked with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)- and President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)-supported LINKAGES project, the United Nations Development Programme, The University of the West Indies, and local organizations to document experiences of GBV and transphobia in healthcare, education, and police encounters.

Extensive barriers remain to sufficiently addressing transgender needs in the HIV epidemic, and little work has been done to document good practices for engaging key donors such as the Global Fund.This report, commissioned by the IRGT: A Global Network of Transgender Women and HIV, examines relevant literature and identifies key themes through six semi-structured interviews with transgender community activists, civil society organization representatives, and officials from the Global Fund and other major HIV donors.
This brief was developed to encourage and inform gender-integrated HIV prevention, care, and treatment programming for transgender people in Kenya. It can be used by individuals and organizations that deliver services to transgender people; those participating in program design and monitoring and evaluation; and decision makers and funders supporting the programs. It is one in a series of briefs on the Nexus of Gender and HIV among key populations most affected by HIV: men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, and people who inject drugs. Information relevant to individuals who are members of multiple populations can be found across the series.
This tool contains practical advice on implementing HIV and sexually transmitted infection (STI) programmes with transgender people and is based on recommendations in the Consolidated Guidelines on HIV Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Care for Key Populations, published in 2014 by the World Health Organization.
