Preventing HIV among Guyana’s Key Populations: Guidelines Abstract:

These guidelines are designed to outline the public health response to HIV among key populations (KPs) in Guyana. The specific objectives are to:

  • Define the populations of interest
  • Define the combination prevention package for KPs
  • Update guidance on the operationalization of interventions
  • Define programme monitoring and evaluation (M&E) for KP prevention activities

The focus of these guidelines is on HIV prevention for KPs and priority populations. To meet the HIVision 2020 goal of eliminating HIV in Guyana, a multi-pronged approach that goes beyond prevention will be required. These guidelines highlight the approaches needed before care and treatment are given and linking with treatment for people who have HIV.
