Framework for monitoring HIV/STI services for key populations in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2019
In Latin America and the Caribbean, between 50% and 65% of new HIV infections occur in key populations of the HIV epidemics and their sexual partners. Improving the availability and coverage of HIV/STI services for these populations requires the support of monitoring systems that are sustainable and adapted to the needs of the countries of the region. To respond to this need, PAHO, through an agreement with The Global Fund, has developed this monitoring framework, which introduces a novel approach for measuring the impact of services.
