Consolidated guidelines on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for key populations
In this new consolidated guidelines document on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for key populations, the World Health Organization brings together all existing guidance relevant to five key populations – men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, people in prisons and other closed settings, sex workers and transgender people – and updates selected guidance and recommendations.
These guidelines aim to:
- provide a comprehensive package of evidence-based HIV-related recommendations for all key populations;
- increase awareness of the needs of and issues important to key populations;
- improve access, coverage and uptake of effective and acceptable services; and
- catalyze greater national and global commitment to adequate funding and services.
The web annexes include the systematic reviews, literature review, values and preferences, supplementary case studies and technical briefs on HIV and young key populations that informed the development of guidance and recommendations for the Consolidated guidelines on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for key populations.
