L'EPOA est décrite en détail dans l'approche LINKAGES Enhanced Peer Outreach: Guide de mise en œuvre. Ce programme de formation complète le guide en offrant un programme détaillé pour la formation des agents de sensibilisation par les pairs afin de mettre en œuvre l'EPOA. Le guide se compose de ce document et d'un ensemble d'outils de formation, de documents et de présentations PowerPoint.
L'approche améliorée de sensibilisation par les pairs (EPOA) est actuellement mise à l'essai par les partenaires de LINKAGES dans plusieurs pays d'Asie, d'Afrique et des Caraïbes orientales. L'expérience jusqu'à présent montre qu'il n'y a pas d'approche "universelle" pour l'APE. C'est un modèle qui nécessite une adaptation au contexte local, et parce qu'il est nouveau, une période d'adaptation peut être nécessaire à mesure que les programmes apprennent ce qui leur convient le mieux. Ce guide décrit l'EPOA et ses avantages potentiels, les composants essentiels de l'EPOA, et les étapes impliquées dans sa mise en œuvre, y compris les défis potentiels. Il comprend une liste de contrôle pour la préparation de la mise en œuvre de l'APE (section 4), et les annexes comprennent des exemples d'outils et de formulaires de programme.
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.
This document provides an overview of UNITAID and outlines the role, terms of office, qualifications and commitments required to serve as a Member of the Communities Living with and Affected by HIV, TB and Malaria and those Coinfected with HIV and HCV Delegation to the Board of UNITAID.
The EPOA is described in detail in the LINKAGES Enhanced Peer Outreach Approach:Implementation Guide. This training curriculum 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.
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.
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.
A melhoria da abordagem de alcance dos pares (EPOA) está sendo testada atualmente por parceiros da LINKAGES em vários países da Ásia, África e do Caribe Oriental. A experiência até agora mostra que não existe uma abordagem "one-size-fits-all" para o EPOA. É um modelo que requer adaptação ao contexto local, e porque é novo, pode ser necessário um período de adaptação, pois os programas aprendem o que funciona melhor para eles. Este guia descreve o EPOA e seus benefícios potenciais, os componentes essenciais do EPOA e as etapas envolvidas na sua implementação, incluindo desafios potenciais. Inclui uma lista de verificação para se preparar para implementar o EPOA (Seção 4), e os anexos incluem exemplos de ferramentas e formulários do programa.
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, which is also available inFrench and Portuguese, 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 of program 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.
The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for programs implementing peer navigation as part of a core package of HIV-related interventions for key populations. It is part of the LINKAGES Peer Navigation Toolkit, which also includes a facilitator’s guide, PowerPoint presentations, and additional resources designed to be used in a variety of contexts, according to local needs. There is another training docment, the Peer Navigation Training Facilitator's Guide Core Modules, which complements this implementation guide.
