From the Global Forum on MSM & HIV comes this  policy brief focusing on the connection between anti-LGBT violence and HIV, attempting to convey a sense of the frequency of these attacks, their exceptional brutality, and their impact on HIV prevention and treatment services.

Due to their increased visibility, LGBT rights defenders and service providers are at increased risk for violent attacks. Not only are these incidents violations of basic human rights, they have a devastating impact on HIV services for LGBT populations.

Taken together, the evidence makes a powerful argument that efforts to prevent, mitigate, and document anti-LGBT violence are indispensable to all HIV-related work. Not only are HIV funders ethically obligated to protect the safety of frontline activists and service providers, their support of anti-violence measures is essential for securing provision of and access to HIV services for LGBT people.

In 2010, AIDS Accountability initiated research to analyze the degree to which countries are fulfilling commitments to LGBT people in the response to HIV and AIDS.

AIDS_Accountability_Scorecard_LGBT_2011Irrespective of the level of exposure to HIV, LGBT people across the world face stigma and discrimination that deny them universal access to helath care. This report examines the situation which is exacerbated for lesbian and transgender women, as stigma and discrimination worsen barriers to accessing quality health care. Moreover, these women and transgender men are more vulnerable to homophobic rape and other forms of physical violence that put them at increased risk of HIV infection.

From UAIDS comes this World AIDS Day report, containing more than 50 examples from all over the world of how countries are getting on the Fast-Track to end AIDS by 2030. It shows how governments are working with community groups and international partners to scale up health and social services that put people at the centre and located where they can do more people more good.

The report shows that areas with fewer numbers of people living with HIV and lower HIV prevalence are more likely to have discriminatory attitudes than areas that have more cases of HIV. This seemingly contradictory result is explained by education and understanding about HIV usually being higher in countries where HIV is more prevalent and where more people are receiving treatment. However, these discriminatory attitudes make it more difficult for people in low-prevalence areas to come forward to seek HIV services for fear of stigma and reprisals.
