Safety and Security Toolkit: Strengthening the Implementation of HIV Programs for and with Key Populations Safety and Security Toolkit: Strengthening the Implementation of HIV Programs for and with Key Populations
Type of content Program guidance

This toolkit was developed to help program implementers, particularly CBOs and others working in direct service delivery, to more effectively address safety and security challenges within their implementation of HIV programs for and with key populations. It is designed for use in hostile environments; for example, where members of key populations are criminalized and face elevated levels of stigma, discrimination, and violence. It seeks to amplify good programming through identifying and cataloging promising practices and tools, making overarching recommendations to address safety and security challenges, and providing a systematic approach (via checklists) to identify and respond to one’s own safety and security gaps. It also clearly describes the context in which safety and security investments are needed and the importance of these investments for an effective HIV response.

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.

Approche Améliorée De Sensibilisation Par Les Pairs, Epoa De Linkages Guide De Mise En Œuvre Approche Améliorée De Sensibilisation Par Les Pairs, Epoa De Linkages Guide De Mise En Œuvre
Type of content Training, Program guidance

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.

Differentiated Care for Antiretroviral Therapy for Key Populations: Case Examples from the LINKAGES Project Differentiated Care for Antiretroviral Therapy for Key Populations: Case Examples from the LINKAGES Project
Type of content Success story

An estimated 37 million people are living with HIV today. Differentiated antiretroviral therapy (ART) delivery, a part of differentiated care, aims to improve retention and viral suppression by optimizing models of drug and care delivery. Models fall into four categories: health care worker-managed group; client-managed group; facility-based individual; and out-of-facility individual. The case studies presented here from FHI 360’s LINKAGES projects in Botswana, Haiti, Kenya, and Malawi are examples of the out-of-facility individual model, sometimes referred to as the community model.
