Policy Brief: It All Starts Here: Estimating the Size of Populations of Men who have Sex with Men and Transgender People. APCOM (2010)

Policy Brief_Estimating_Size_of_Populations_of_MSM_and_TGs_2010-1

Over the past two years it has become increasingly clear that scaling up services to most-at-risk populations (MARPs) around the world, particularly in concentrated epidemics, has to be prioritized if universal access to HIV prevention and care is to be achieved. An important challenge to reaching MARPs is that they are often marginalized, stigmatized and discriminated against. Partly as a result of this, and partly as a result of self-segregation, there is often a lack of information about these groups. If active efforts to significantly increase prevention, care and treatment service coverage for these vulnerable populations are to be made, we need to get to know their characteristics, including an estimation of the number of people that need these services.
