men who have sex with men, transgender persons and people who inject drugs —
and improve their enrollment and retention in care and treatment across the HIV
cascade. LINKAGES will accelerate the ability of governments, key population
leaders, organizations working with key populations, and private-sector
providers to plan and implement services that reduce HIV transmission among key
populations and their sexual partners and extend the lives of those already
living with HIV. The key elements of the FHI 360-led team’s strategic and
technical approach are:
  • Identifying key populations and locales
    and comprehensively assessing risk,
  • Diagnosing “leaks” and revealing access
    barriers within the HIV services cascade,
  • Scaling up “what works” while
    innovating to ensure the most strategic use of resources and access to
    newly emerging technologies,
  • Addressing structural barriers and
    transforming local KP organizations,
  • Ensuring interventions are sustainable
    over the long term, and
  • Supporting the mainstreaming of human
    rights, gender and competency and capacity development.
