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!
This success story on the mHealth campaign was developed as part of the USAID-funded Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project (PACTE-VIH) to remind recipients to take their antiretroviral drugs as prescribed; systematically use condoms and lubricants during sexual intercourse; check their HIV status every three months; and to visit HIV testing and counseling services and seek early treatment for sexually transmitted diseases.
This success story documents the Third Regional Meeting on Key Populations in Yaoundé, Burkina Faso, which focused on the urgent needs of populations most vulnerable to HIV. The September 2016 meeting was hosted by the PACTE-VIH project and broke new ground by bringing together leaders from many small communities of men having sex with men and female sex workers—those among the most vulnerable to HIV—to partner with public health professionals, ministers and other senior government officials, international officials, and donor agencies.
This success story features police outreach efforts and training to help law enforcement understand how creating fear among FSW and MSM discourages them from seeking health services for HIV and STI prevention. These efforts are part of the five-year, West Africa Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project, known in the region as PACTE-VIH, managed by FHI 360.
This success story focuses on training workshops to raise awareness among media owners, editors, and reporters about the discrimination and violence toward key populations.The workshops—sponsored by the USAID-funded Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project (PACTE-VIH)—were the result of alliances formed between the media, HIV responders and members of vulnerable communities.
This success story documents the use of Unique Identifier Codes (UICs) developed by the PACTE-VIH project to guarantee anonymity and increase precision in treatment of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among key populations in Burkina Faso and Togo. With the UIC card, individuals can visit any health services center to get treatment and advice without risk.
