This toolkit was created to increase access to, and the quality of, prevention, care and treatment services for key populations (men who have sex with men and female sex workers) in West Africa by facilitating the replication of the PACTE-VIH model.
The goal of this toolkit is to increase access to and the quality of prevention, care, and treatment services for key populations by facilitating the replication of the PACTE-VIH model.
This toolkit has three objectives:
- Describe the components of the PACTE-VIH model and discuss how each component was developed and implemented
- Share key project resources: training curricula, service delivery protocols, and materials for information, education, and communication (IEC), and behavior change communication (BCC)
- Provide guidance and recommendations for replication of the model
Target Audience for this Toolkit
This toolkit will be useful for the implementation of key population programs among those who plan to adopt or adapt the PACTE-VIH model to provide essential and comprehensive prevention and support services for key populations in mixed epidemic environments that have high levels of stigma and discrimination. Potential users include nongovernmental organizations, government representatives, and donors who fund key population programs.
Organizations or coalitions interested in replicating the PACTE-VIH model should consider several overarching aspects of the project in addition to the five key strategies detailed in the rest of the toolkit.
