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.

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.

Boîte à outils de l’activiste: La PrEP pour les populations clés Boîte à outils de l’activiste: La PrEP pour les populations clés
Type of content Program guidance, Advocacy

Cette boîte à outils se concentre sur la prévention du VIH parmi les populations clés - les travailleurs du sexe, les consommateurs de drogues injectables, les personnes transgenres, les hommes gais et les autres hommes ayant des rapports sexuels avec des hommes. À l'échelle mondiale, les populations clés sont 10 à 24 fois plus exposées au risque de contracter le VIH que les adultes de la population générale En 2015, les infections parmi les populations clés représentaient 36% de toutes les nouvelles infections. Cette boîte à outils a trois objectifs principaux:

  • Doter les activistes communautaires des connaissances et des compétences dont ils ont besoin en matière de PrEP, de plaidoyer et de mobilisation de la communauté pour qu'ils soient en mesure de mobiliser leurs communautés pour exiger la PrEP
  • Permettre aux activistes communautaires de la PrEP de plaider auprès de leurs gouvernements et de leurs fournisseurs de services afin de permettre aux populations clés d'accéder aux services de PrEP
  • Veiller à ce que ces services soient fournis d'une manière ordonnable, adaptée à leurs besoins et aux obstacles d'accès.
