It is designed for use in environments where members of key populations are criminalized and face elevated levels of stigma, discrimination, and violence. It identifies promising practices and tools, makes recommendations to address safety and security challenges, and provides a systematic approach (via checklists) to identify and respond to safety and security gaps.
This toolkit was developed to help program implementers, particularly CBOs and others working in direct service delivery, to more effectively address safety and security challenges within their implementation of HIV programs for and with key populations. It is designed for use in hostile environments; for example, where members of key populations are criminalized and face elevated levels of stigma, discrimination, and violence. It seeks to amplify good programming through identifying and cataloging promising practices and tools, making overarching recommendations to address safety and security challenges, and providing a systematic approach (via checklists) to identify and respond to one’s own safety and security gaps. It also clearly describes the context in which safety and security investments are needed and the importance of these investments for an effective HIV response.

The toolkit was developed by the International HIV/ AIDS Alliance as a member of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on Violence, Stigma, and Discrimination against Key Populations. The TAG is convened by the Linkages across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV (LINKAGES) project, which is supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and led by FHI 360.
The toolkit includes extensive input from implementers working in East Africa, due to the growing safety and security concerns of many local partners in the region who—in collaboration with the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, LINKAGES, and other members of the TAG—implement programs for and with key populations. However, much of the content of the toolkit is relevant globally, and it is up to each implementer to determine whether a specific practice, recommendation, or resource is appropriate for their setting.
