LINKAGES Enhance Peer Outreach Approach Implementation Guide

The enhance peer outreach approach (EPOA) is currently being piloted by LINKAGES partners in several countries in Asia, Africa, and the Eastern Caribbean. Experience so far shows that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to the EPOA. It is a model that requires adaptation to the local context, and because it is new, a period of adaptation may be needed as programs learn what works best for them. This guide describes the EPOA and its potential benefits, the essential components of the EPOA, and the steps involved in implementing it, including potential challenges. It includes a checklist for preparing to implement the EPOA (Section 4), and the annexes include examples ofprogram tools and forms.

A High-level Failure for the United Nations on Key Populations

New York, NY – The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP), The Global Network of Trans Women and HIV (IRGT), Global Action for Trans Equality (GATE),  and MSMGF (The Global Forum on MSM & HIV) together with the Global Platform to Fast-Track the HIV and Human Rights Responses Among Gay and Bisexual Men and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men (The Platform) are deeply disappointed by the adoption of a flawed Political Declaration today at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Ending AIDS (HLM).  The Political Declaration inexcusably fails to meaningfully address the HIV epidemic among key populations, including gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men, sex workers, people who use drugs, and transgender people.
