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.
In commemoration of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, LINKAGES’ new infographic explores how HIV programs for key populations can address violence. The infographic highlights the global prevalence of HIV and violence among key populations, the impact of violence on HIV among key populations across the cascade, and six recommendations to integrate violence prevention and response into HIV programs for key populations.
This briefing paper illustrates how Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-Being for All at All Ages, is relevant to the specific health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people. The paper highlights existing data pertinent to the health and well-being of LGBTI people across seven targets within this Goal, as well as relevant data gaps. The paper then makes a series of recommendations regarding what type of data and indicators Member States should report in order to effectively monitor progress on LGBTI health needs and ensure implementation of SDG 3 is truly universal and in line with the SDGs principle of “leave no one behind.”
Cette boîte à outils se concentre sur la prévention du VIH parmi les populations clés - les travailleurs du sexe, les consommateurs de drogues injectables, les personnes transgenres, les hommes gais et les autres hommes ayant des rapports sexuels avec des hommes. À l'échelle mondiale, les populations clés sont 10 à 24 fois plus exposées au risque de contracter le VIH que les adultes de la population générale En 2015, les infections parmi les populations clés représentaient 36% de toutes les nouvelles infections. Cette boîte à outils a trois objectifs principaux:
- Doter les activistes communautaires des connaissances et des compétences dont ils ont besoin en matière de PrEP, de plaidoyer et de mobilisation de la communauté pour qu'ils soient en mesure de mobiliser leurs communautés pour exiger la PrEP
- Permettre aux activistes communautaires de la PrEP de plaider auprès de leurs gouvernements et de leurs fournisseurs de services afin de permettre aux populations clés d'accéder aux services de PrEP
- Veiller à ce que ces services soient fournis d'une manière ordonnable, adaptée à leurs besoins et aux obstacles d'accès.
The global sex workers’ rights movement calls for ‘third parties’ because it recognises the diversity of relationships that exist between sex workers and others in the organisation and facilitation of sex work. The term ‘third party’ can include a range of individuals, including but not limited to, managers, brothel keepers, receptionists, maids, drivers, landlords, hotels who rent rooms to sex workers, and anyone else who is seen as facilitating sex work
MSMGF has published its complete digital library of video lectures covering all six chapters of the MSM Implementation Toolkit (MSMIT) in its online learning platform, CPR (Community Partnership Resources) for health professionals. The video lectures are a free method of disseminating the content of the MSMIT via a series of 32 guided lectures on YouTube. CPR is part of an overall strategy to promote the roll out and uptake of normative guidance concerning gay men’s health. The goal is to enable health care providers to deliver high-quality HIV related services for gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men. The tool can also be used by advocates, implementers and policy makers to increase demand for comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services among gay and bisexual men.
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. The two-day event brought together more than 45 participants from 20 diﬀerent countries representing civil society, key populations, governments, and technical expert groups. Open discussions and working groups focused on key considerations of PrEP implementation across key population groups, and the development of innovative strategies to create better access to PrEP for communities.
This document illuminates the position of the advocacy platform (established by The Global Forum on MSM & HIV, together with the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, and with representatives from UNAIDS Secretariat, UNDP, UNFPA, the World Bank, and WHO), on four advocacy priorities identified during the Bangkok convening, and offers examples of messaging, potential partners, and data necessary to coordinate action.
This tool offers practical advice on how to design and implement programs and approaches for and with people who inject drugs, across the full continuum of HIV and HCV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care, aligned with UN guidance. It contains examples of good practice from around the world that may support efforts in planning programs and services, and describes issues that should be considered and how to overcome challenges. The intended users of this tool are public-health officials and managers of HIV and harm reduction programmes; nongovernmental, community and civil-society organizations, including networks of people who use drugs; and health workers. It will also be of interest to advocates and activists for the rights of people who use drugs, and to international funding agencies and health policy-makers.
In 2017, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) embarked on an initiative to develop and implement innovative community-led demand creation solutions for access to and use of oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) of HIV by key populations. This initiative included a preliminary literature review of global community perspectives on PrEP, the Community-led Consultative Think Tank Meeting on PrEP, and development of the Key Population Activist Toolkit on PrEP. This document includes the seven points that were developed from this consultative process and articulates key PrEP messages from key population networks and PrEP experts.
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.
UNDP provided a process and methodology to comprehensively assess laws, regulations and policies in relation to legal gender recognition in nine countries in Asia. This detailed assessment of relevant legal, regulatory and policy provisions, and the context within which they have developed, aims to benefit strategic planning on how to overcome the barriers that transgender people face.
This resource explains the rationale and the process for implementing the gender strategy for the Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV (LINKAGES) project. It is divided into four sections: background on the LINKAGES project and the need for gender integration in HIV programming for key populations; guidance on gender integration in U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) programming; project priorities and tools for gender integration; and monitoring and evaluating gender-integrated HIV programming in the project.
Este conjunto de herramientas se enfoca en prevenir el VIH entre las poblaciones clave: trabajadores sexuales, personas que se inyectan drogas, personas transgénero y hombres homosexuales y otros hombres que tienen sexo con hombres. A nivel mundial, las poblaciones clave tienen entre 10 y 24 veces más riesgo de contraer el VIH que los adultos en la población general. En 2015, las infecciones entre las poblaciones clave representaron el 36% de todas las nuevas infecciones. Hay tres objetivos principales de este conjunto de herramientas:
- Para equipar a los activistas comunitarios con el conocimiento y las habilidades que necesitan en torno a la PrEP, la promoción y la movilización de la comunidad para que puedan movilizar a sus comunidades para exigir la PrEP.
- Para permitir que los activistas comunitarios de PrEP aboguen con sus gobiernos y proveedores de servicios para permitir que las poblaciones clave accedan a los servicios de PrEP
- Para garantizar que estos servicios se brinden de una manera que sea aceptable, que se ajuste a sus necesidades y que aborde las barreras de acceso.
Briefing on the expansion of the 'Mexico City Policy.' On 13 January 2017, the US President announced the reintroduction and expansion of the ‘Mexico City Policy’, also known as the Global Gag Rule, a policy that bans awarding US global health funds to non-governmental organisations working outside of the US that perform, actively give information about, or promote the decriminalisation of abortion.
