HEADLIGHT : Understanding WHO’s Consolidated Guidelines on HIV Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment and Care for Key Populations. APCOM. (2014)

The Guidelines aim to support countries provide more effective and comprehensive HIV services for the key populations, including men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people and include discussion of specific issues relating to adolescent key populations. Although, there is still a lack of evidence to support recommendation of PrEP to transgender women. In this brief we highlight the recommendations made in the Guidelines that are most relevant to MSM and transgender people.

Mainstreaming HIV and AIDS in Youth Employment. ILO. (2014)

immage

Young people are facing significant challenges in finding decent job opportunities. The 2008 global financial crisis has disproportionately impacted youth across the world. The global recovery process has weakened throughout 2012 and 2013, and the global youth unemployment rate in 2013 is estimated at 12.6 per cent. Based on the ILO calculations, more than 73  million young people are currently unemployed. Despite the magnitude of this figure, youth unemployment represents only the tip of the iceberg. Young people are affected by decent work deficits and are over-represented among worker in poor-quality jobs, measured in terms of working poverty, low pay and/or employment status and the incidence of informality. The economic and social costs of unemployment, under-employment, discouragement and widespread low-quality jobs for young women and men continue to increase.
