Abstract:

In this new consolidated guidelines document on HIV prevention, diagnosis, treatment
and care for key populations, the World Health Organization (WHO) 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.
