Combination Prevention of HIV – A Technical Guide to Working with Key Affected Populations

This guide presents evidence and example activities that serve as a resource for program implementers and planners working to prevent HIV among female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and people who inject drugs.

The guide helps with the design of integrated structural, biomedical, and behavioral approaches that are tailored to address the specific drivers of these key affected populations. This resource offers guidance on a range of structural, biomedical, and behavioral interventions, including those that address: advocacy, stigma and discrimination, HIV care and treatment, PEP, STI management and diagnosis, PMTCT, peer education, harm reduction, and many more.

Included are sections on structural, biomedical and behavioral interventions. The behavioral interventions include

  • Individual-level behavior change through peer education and community-based counseling
  • Collective-level behavior change
  • Institutional-level behavior change through health providers
  • Media communication for behavior change
