Supporting People Living with HIV and Key Populations through Ambitious Global Fund Replenishment

The Global Fund is an essential mechanism that helps to ensure the life-saving treatment, care and prevention response for people living with HIV and key populations in countries that need it most.

简报: 性工作者关于 艾滋病/性病 药品和治疗缺 货的经验

从全球范围来看,性工作者受到艾滋病的严重影响。据估计,性工作者的感染率是一般人群的34倍。对于全球性工作者的健康和福祉来说,获得艾滋病预防的有关物品、检测和治疗是非常重要的。世界卫生组织的指南提供了面向包括性工作者在内重点人群干预措施的建议。这些干预措施包括全面的安全套和润滑剂项目、艾滋病检测和咨询、艾滋病治疗和关怀、性和生殖健康服务。SWIT进一步包含了针对艾滋病预防和关怀的建议。但是,联合国艾滋病规划署2018年的全球艾滋病进展报告指出,在重点人群对艾滋病预防物品和治疗的需求与实际供应之间存在着巨大的差距,全球重点人群的新发感染达到了47%。

这份简报探索了20个国家中性工作者关于基本药物的断供、抗病毒药物、安全套和润滑剂、性病和艾滋病的诊断,以及艾滋病病毒载量检测的经验。简报提供了来自性工作者的直接证据;彰显了这些药品断供如何导致了感染的脆弱性、治疗的中断、艾滋病性病的耐药,滞后诊断、治疗失败,以及死亡。简报还提供了解决这些问题的建议。

这份简报由国际艾滋病治疗联盟(ITPC)和全球性工作项目网络(NSWP)之间的合作。

Associations between sex work laws and sex workers’ health: A systematic review and meta-analysis of quantitative and qualitative studies

This systematic review and meta-analysis, led by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), has found that sex workers who have experienced 'regressive policing' (including arrest, extortion and violence from police), are three times more likely to experience sexual or physical violence. The study examines the impacts of criminalisation on sex workers’ safety, health, and access to services, using data from 33 countries. Sex workers' health and safety was found to be at risk not only in countries where sex work was criminalised, but also in Canada, which has introduced the “Nordic model”, where purchasing sex is specifically criminalised.

Briefing Paper: Sex Workers’ Experiences of Stock-outs of HIV/STI Commodities and Treatments

Globally, sex workers are disproportionately affected by HIV, with prevalence estimated to be up to 34 times higher among sex workers than the general population. Access to commodities for HIV prevention, detection and access to treatment is critical to the health and wellbeing of sex workers around the world. Interventions recommended in World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for key populations, including sex workers, include comprehensive condom and lubricant programming; HIV testing and counselling; HIV treatment and care; and sexual and reproductive health interventions.
