LINKAGES Violence Prevention and Response Package LINKAGES Violence Prevention and Response Package
Type of content Training, Program guidance

Members of key populations experience disproportionate burdens of both HIV and violence. These epidemics are linked—violence increases HIV vulnerability and poses a barrier to HIV testing, disclosure and adherence to antiretroviral therapy. Addressing both public health challenges simultaneously is an important strategy for epidemic control and the protection of human rights. The LINKAGES project developed a programmatic guide and three training manuals that support the integration of violence prevention and response activities and HIV prevention, care and treatment services in key population programs. The guide contains principles, step-by-step instruction, and sample templates and tools. 

Connecting Asia: Mobilising a community-led HIV response using Information and Communications TechnologyConnecting Asia: Mobilising a community-led HIV response using Information and Communications Technology Connecting Asia: Mobilising a Community-led HIV Response Using Information and Communications Technology
Type of content Program guidance

This report aims to identify the critical enablers for community mobilisation of ICT use and support those involved in the HIV response to better articulate the added value that ICT plays in improving health outcomes and includes a summary of key trends in ICTs, case studies of current program pilots, lessons learned by the community thus far, and key considerations moving forward. It is understood that the full spectrum of needs and activities described above will not happen in a linear nor uniform way across Asia. Various factors such as local contexts, political environments, demographics of target populations, and capacity of CBOs will all impact when, where, and how ICTs are integrated into program use.

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.

Achievements with Media to Create an Enabling Environment for KP Interventions in Togo and Burkina Faso Achievements with Media to Create an Enabling Environment for KP Interventions in Togo and Burkina Faso
Type of content Program guidance

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.

Agenda 2030: For LGBTI Health and Well-being Agenda 2030: For LGBTI Health and Well-being
Type of content Program guidance, Advocacy

This briefing paper illustrates how Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-Being for All at All Ages, is relevant to the specific health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people. The paper highlights existing data pertinent to the health and well-being of LGBTI people across seven targets within this Goal, as well as relevant data gaps. The paper then makes a series of recommendations regarding what type of data and indicators Member States should report in order to effectively monitor progress on LGBTI health needs and ensure implementation of SDG 3 is truly universal and in line with the SDGs principle of “leave no one behind.”

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.
