New Resource: Costing Data Guide for Key HIV Service Providers to FSW and MSM in Côte d’Ivoire

 

Costing Data Use Guide For Providing Key HIV Services to Female Sex Workers and Men Who Have Sex with Men in Côte d’Ivoire is a useful report published by The Health Policy Project. The report is has been designed for program planners, policy, and decision makers, and civil society organisations that advocate for and work with Female Sex Workers (FSW) and Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) in programs related to HIV and AIDS.

It draws upon key findings from the original study (in French) and provides details on how to use data for decision making and evidence-based HIV programs, services, and policies, which address the needs of people living with HIV (PLHIV), MSM, and FSWs in Côte d’Ivoire.  HIV prevalence in Côte d’Ivoire among key populations, including FSWs and MSM, is significantly higher due to the challenges they face in their access to HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support services. In order to prove this situation a study has been carried out to estimate the costs associated with a minimum package of HIV services for FSWs and for MSM.
