What's out there on PrEP: a literature review What's Out There on PrEP: a Literature Review
Type of content Research, Program guidance

The role of community in the uptake of PrEP is vital as has been highlighted throughout this review. The discourse has been most prominent at global policy level, and as PrEP as a viable prevention strategy takes hold at country level, ensuring that PrEP is carefully integrated into existing HIV programmes in close partnership with KPs themselves will be the next challenge towards ensuring maximum community-led demand for PrEP. This literature review and subsequent steps in the ITPC’s community-led demand creation process upholds ITPC’s efforts to integrate the voice of community in the discourse on PrEP implementation and rollout.

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.

Community-based supporters (CBSs) administered the tests and provided referrals for additional services along the HIV cascade. After the first three months of implementation, CBSs proved that they could reach significant numbers of MSM and trans women with HIV testing using OraQuick.
