Maintaining and Prioritizing HIV Prevention Services in the Time of COVID-19. UNAIDS and Global HIV Prevention Coalition (GPC). (2020)

immage

In the time of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), sex and drug use will continue, regardless of physical distancing orders and policies. People who previously met in community gathering venues such as bars and clubs may now meet in different sites, ones that are “hidden” or less accessible. This, in turn, may hinder efforts to reach them with prevention interventions, such as condoms, lubricants, and needle–syringe programmes. With the widespread loss of livelihood and fewer employment opportunities, transactional sex, sex work and sexual exploitation may increase.

Condoms and Lubricants in the Time of COVID-19 — Sustaining Supplies and People-centred Approaches to Meet the Need in Low- and Middle-income Countries — A Short Brief on Actions, April 2020. UNAIDS, UNFPA and Global HIV Prevention Coalition (GPC). (2020)

immage

The aim of this brief is to ensure that the COVID-19 pandemic does not disrupt the supply of and demand generation for condoms. Sexual relations may be transformed in the new context of the pandemic, but they have not stopped. While access to male and female condoms has been critical in the global response to reduce HIV, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unintended pregnancies over the past three decades, these gains can be lost if condoms are not included in the essential commodities that are freely available to populations during the lockdown of countries.
