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.

Esta historia de éxito, que también está disponible en francés y español, destaca los hallazgos del estudio y describe cómo LINKAGES, el PNUD y los socios locales han utilizado la investigación para abordar la VBG dentro de las políticas y la programación de prestación de servicios para el VIH.
Significant resources have created strong ‘test and treat’ programs globally. What about those who test HIV negative? How can we strengthen the linkage of HIV-negative individuals to prevention programs in ways that work for them? In our recently completed Test-And-Prevent Analysis, the OPTIONS Consortium identifies practices for linking individuals from HIV testing to HIV prevention. This work aims to identify interventions that are effective, the enabling conditions that support linkage, and remaining questions.

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.
To discuss key considerations of PrEP implementation across key population groups, and develop strategies and solutions on community-led KP demand creation, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) hosted a global community-led consultation on PrEP.
