Abstract:

Condom and lubricant (C/L) programming is a critical element of an evidence-based HIV prevention package for sex workers (SW), men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender (TG) people, populations bearing a disproportionate burden of HIV in Africa. Policy impacts lubricant availability and access.The USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project adapted the Policy Assessment and Inventory Decision Model methodology in Burkina Faso, Togo, and Kenya to assess policies that impact SW/MSM/ TG access to services, including C/L, against international standards and best practices. This poster presents the methods and results of the study, and was prepared for the 20th International AIDS Conference in July 2014.
