When Situations Go from Bad to Worse: Guidance For International And Regional Actors Responding To Acute Violence Against Key Populations. LINKAGES Project. (2018)

immage

As the violence directed at members of key populations most affected by HIV — gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men; people who inject drugs; sex workers; and transgender people — intensifies and becomes “acute” in many parts of the globe, this brief offers guidance to international and regional actors who wish to be part of an effective and coordinated response. International and regional actors who may benefit from this guidance include, but are not limited to, key population networks, governmental bodies, donors, embassies, security experts, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), media, research institutions, United Nations (UN) agencies or offices, and human rights organizations operating globally or regionally.

Reconsidering Primary Prevention of HIV. Ayala G, Chang J, Matheson R, Sprague L and Thomas RM. (2017)

immage

The uneven distribution of HIV risks and burdens across populations is a well-substantiated fact, though seldom publicly acknowledged.1 Gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers, and transgender women are 24, 24, 13.5, and 49 times more likely to acquire HIV, respectively, than other reproductive aged adults (15 years old and older). Globally, new infections among these key populations account for 45% of all new HIV infections. This figure is likely to be an underestimate, given the intense stigma associated with disclosing and reporting acquisition risks for HIV among gay men, people who use drugs, sex workers, and transgender people.
