The Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care project, known in west Africa as PACTE-VIH, addresses the critical gaps in programming for key populations — specifically female sex workers and their clients, and men who have sex with men — across west Africa. As part of project closeout (July 2017), PACTE-VIH developed an "insight" series of lessons learned throughout five years of implementation. This resource highlights the importance, lessons learned, and tips for replicating activities to engage media in HIV programming with key populations.
A call for manuscripts to address the urgent need to take stock of emerging evidence related to optimizing and monitoring service delivery for key populations. Submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed and those accepted will comprise a special supplement of the Journal of the International AIDS Society focusing on new evidence and data-driven strategies for improving key population programming across the HIV cascade. Deadline for submission is Dec. 1, 2017.

The guide consists of this document and a set of training tools, handouts, and PowerPoint presentations.
This toolkit provides practical guidance to governments, funders, civil society organizations and other implementing partners on conducting a gender analysis and using findings to inform HIV prevention, care and treatment programs with key populations. It outlines considerations and steps for conducting a gender analysis; explores how to engage with stakeholders, including key population members, in a meaningful partnership; shares lessons learned from a comprehensive gender analysis in Kenya and an abridged gender analysis in Cameroon; and provides tools and resources for conducting a gender analysis with key populations.
Updated news regarding the global fund and sex workers, including transition for sex workers in countries who will not be eligible for funding through the Global Fund in the future; selection of Global Fund Board Leadership; and the search for the new Executive Director.
The Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care project, known in west Africa as PACTE-VIH, addresses the critical gaps in programming for key populations — specifically female sex workers and their clients, and men who have sex with men — across west Africa. As part of project closeout (July 2017), PACTE-VIH developed an "insight" series of lessons learned throughout five years of implementation. This resource highlights the background, outcomes, challenges, lessons learned, and recommendations for implementing mHealth programming for HIV prevention with key populations.
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.
This independent review, commissioned by the Community, Rights and Gender (CRG) Department at the Global Fund Secretariat and published by MSMGF, shares findings, conclusions, and recommendations for enhancing the meaningful engagement of communities in all phases of Global Fund grants, with an emphasis on grant making and grant implementation. The review synthesizes lessons learned and good practices for how communities engage meaningfully, and identifies key principles and strategic actions the Global Fund can take to ensure greater accountability between communities, Country Coordinating Mechanisms, other key stakeholders, and the Global Fund itself.
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.
The enhanced 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.
There is also a training curriculum that complements the guide by offering a detailed curriculum for training peer outreach workers to implement the EPOA. The guide consists of this document and a set of training tools, handouts, and PowerPoint presentations.
The LINKAGES project (Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV), has established a global Program Acceleration Initiative that will use its existing partnerships to accelerate and strengthen the delivery of the comprehensive package of services at scale. This implementation guide is part of the initiative; it sets out the steps that programs can take to deliver services to key populations effectively and quickly.

Implemented by FHI 360 with support from USAID, The Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care project (PACTE-VIH), addresses the critical gaps in programming for key populations — specifically female sex workers and their clients, and men who have sex with men — across west Africa. This document summarizes the PACTE-VIH project closeout ceremony held 15 June 2017 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The purpose of the ceremony was to review successes and lessons learned over the past five years of project implementation.
