The authors, working for Pehchan, conducted a series of interviews with their colleagues to understand the impact of programming and funds provided by the Global Fund on transgender people in India. The interviews, either in local language or English, were done through a structured questionnaire that focused on four main components: personal history, trans scenario in India, Global Fund Program experiences, and specific recommendations for future interventions.

The report is based on interviews of transgender persons and hijras across India who worked with or clients of Pehchan, and it captures the human stories explaining personal struggles in claiming of identity.

Ethical and Safety Recommendations for Intervention Research on Violence against Women. WHO. (2016)

immage

The publication of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations 'Putting women first: ethical and safety recommendations for research on domestic violence against women' provided researchers with a set of concrete actions and best practices for conducting survey research on violence against women (VAW) in a manner that was both ethical and safe. These recommendations have spawned additional publications highlighting ethical concerns in different aspects of research on VAW. Most recently, additional guidelines have been released focusing on general recommendations for conducting research on VAW, on primary prevention initiatives, on sexual violence in emergency settings, with perpetrators of sexual violence, and on violence against children.

A majority of countries regularly report treatment numbers and other data against a standard set of indicators to UNAIDS through the Global AIDS Response Progress Reporting (GARPR) system.

Key Populations Brief: People Living with HIV. Stop TB Partnership. (2016)

immage

While HIV-induced immunosuppression makes people living with HIV (PLHIV) extremely vulnerable to TB, stigma, absence of precise point-of-care diagnostics, and poor integration of TB and HIV services make TB particularly deadly for this population. Along with stigma, other factors such as gender, poverty and malnutrition promote delays in diagnosis, present barriers to treatment, and impact patients’ adherence to medications.

Key Populations Brief: Health Care Workers. Stop TB Partnership. (2016)

immage

Health care workers (HCWs) are at an increased risk of acquiring tuberculosis (TB) compared to the general population. In low-resource, high-TB-burden settings, occupationally acquired TB is depleting the very workforce fighting the disease on the frontline. Failures in health systems, occupational health (OH) services and TB infection control (TBIC), staffing shortages, supply issues, lack of funding, and lack of supervision, are putting the lives of HCWs, their families, and those they are tasked with caring for at risk. The fear of stigma, coupled with weak labour protections and poor confidentiality measures, often means that HCWs are afraid to disclose their health status to employers for fear of being ostracized or losing their jobs.
