HIV and GBV in Key Populations

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.14.7″ _module_preset=”default” text_orientation=”justified” hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” theme_builder_area=”post_content” sticky_enabled=”0″]

There is an undeniable connection between sexual and reproductive health, HIV, and gender-based violence in key populations. Key populations are groups of people who are disproportionately affected by HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and may also face stigma, discrimination, and violence due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, or other factors.

These populations include men who have sex with men, sex workers, people who inject drugs, and transgender individuals, among others.

Sexual and reproductive health is a key factor in the overall health and well-being of individuals and communities. It includes access to a range of services, including contraception, family planning, and maternal and child health care, as well as prevention and treatment of STIs, including HIV.

HIV disproportionately affects key populations, and stigma and discrimination can make it difficult for these individuals to access the health care and services they need. This can also lead to gender-based violence, as individuals may be targeted or marginalized due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status.

Addressing the linkages between sexual and reproductive health, HIV, and gender-based violence in key populations is critical to improving the overall health and well-being of these individuals and communities, and reducing the impact of HIV and other STIs. This may involve efforts to increase access to health care and services, as well as addressing stigma and discrimination and promoting acceptance and inclusion.
