MSM report Southern AfricaMay 2013, 80 pages

New report documents widespread neglect by governments and donors: Underfinancing, discrimination, and stigma undermine fight against HIV among gay men, other men who have sex with men, and transgender people.

The report focuses on Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Where programs for GMT (gay men, other men who have sex with men, and transgender individuals) exist in Southern Africa, they attempt to address the urgent needs of the population living in the region. However, there are too few programs that have a transformative effect on the epidemic overall. Funding by donors and national governments is not sufficient to achieve real public health impact or evaluate outcomes. Attention must shift from global and national strategy documents to actual implementation—developing robust, achievable indicators for programs serving GMT, and building the evidence base around high-impact interventions.

Being strategic on HIV requires greater attention to implementing programs for GMT and other key populations in Southern Africa. An AIDS-free generation will never be achieved without Southern Africa and Southern Africa cannot achieve an AIDS-free generation without greater attention to the needs of GMT.

health agenda

2017, 48 pages

A new 2017 publication illustrates how Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3, Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-Being for All at All Ages, is relevant to the specific health needs of LGBTI people. The paper highlights existing data pertinent to the health and well-being of LGBTI people across seven targets within this Goal, as well as relevant data gaps. The paper then makes a series of recommendations regarding what type of data and indicators Member States should report in order to effectively monitor progress on LGBTI health needs and ensure implementation of SDG 3 is truly universal and in line with the SDGs principle of “leave no one behind.”

Prevention Gap Report2016, 286 pages

This new report from UNAIDS shows that efforts to reach fewer than 500 000 new HIV infections by 2020 are off track. This simple conclusion sits atop a complex and diverse global tapestry. Data from 146 countries show that some have achieved declines in new HIV infections among adults of 50% or more over the last 10 years, while many others have not made measurable progress, and yet others have experienced worrying increases in new HIV infections.

Proud Cropped

2014, 73 pages

Factors such as stigma, discrimination, violence, exclusion from national HIV health surveillance, gaps in the knowledge and attitudes of health-care workers, and the criminalisation of same-sex acts adversely affect the access to and uptake of health-care services by LGBTIs. In carrying out the needs assessments, this publication focuses on identifying those factors that restrict the access and uptake of health services amongst specific target LGBTI groups within each Southern African country.
