Abstract:

The response to HIV and AIDS is an integral component of efforts to improve social and economic conditions in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. Available data suggest that HIV prevalence rates among key populations, particularly female sex workers (FSWs) and men who have sex with men (MSM), are several times higher than the national averages for both countries. These groups also face additional barriers to social acceptance and access to services, compared with the general population. Accordingly, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire each completed a Strategic Framework to guide interventions and service delivery specifically for key populations. The frameworks propose a package of services that includes HIV prevention; HIV treatment, care, and support; and psychosocial support and legal services. This brief describes the costing analysis conducted by HPP and in-country stakeholders to provide country-specific costing data on key populations to provide an evidence base for policy-making processes.
