In this resource, the World Health Organisation (WHO) brings together all existing guidelines on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for five key populations (both adults and adolescents) in the HIV response: men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, people in prisons and other closed settings, sex workers and transgender people. It includes a number of new recommendations and updates existing guidance and recommendations as appropriate. The 8-page policy brief summarises the Consolidated Guidelines.
These guidelines aim to:
- provide a comprehensive package of evidence-based HIV-related recommendations for key populations;
- increase awareness of the needs of and issues important to key populations;
- improve access to, uptake and coverage of effective and acceptable services; and
- catalyse greater national and global commitment to adequate funding and services.
