I am pleased to share a new Pathfinder technical brief: Rights-based HIV prevention and treatment for key populations in Mozambique.
Key populations-people who have been pushed to the margins of society by discriminatory laws, policies, and social stigma-are defined by UNAIDS as key to a country's HIV epidemic, and key to its response. In Mozambique, these populations include female sex workers, men who have sex with men, incarcerated individuals, and people who inject drugs. While Mozambique has reduced the number of new HIV infections over the past decade, HIV prevalence among Mozambique's key populations is disproportionately high, when compared to the general population. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention- and Anadarko-funded Increasing Access to HIV Prevention, Care, and Treatment for Key Populations in Mozambique project (2015-2018), led by Pathfinder International, contributed to a reduction in HIV incidence by increasing access to clinical and community services that protect and respect the human rights of key populations. This technical brief explores implementation of Pathfinder's rights-based approach in the context of VIDAS II project.
Please share widely!
