Survey for our 2021 NGO Report “Left Out: The HIV Community & Societal Enablers in the HIV Response”

This online survey will provide information, including quotes/anecdotes and data, for the annual report of the NGO Delegation to the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board (PCB). The report will be titled Left Out: The HIV Community & Societal Enablers in the HIV Response. The report will be presented at the 49th meeting of the UNAIDS PCB in December 2021.

Your opinions and ideas provided through this survey will help the NGO Delegation produce a report that will dispel doubts about the centrality of societal interventions in the HIV response for Key Populations (KP) and other vulnerable groups such as women and girls, adolescents, and young people (AYP), and migrants. The report will define societal enablers and explore in-depth the importance of four societal enablers in particular – education, employment, healthcare, and laws and policies. It will argue the case that societal enablers can significantly improve access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care for KP and other vulnerable groups. Below are examples of societal enablers:

  • Education: Inclusion of comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) in school and university curriculums to educate AYP on human rights, sexuality, gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health.
  • Employment: Government training programs for KP and other vulnerable groups that increase their marketable skills and knowledge.
  • Healthcare: KP community-led HIV prevention, testing, and treatment services.
  • Laws and policies: Anti-discrimination laws that cover HIV status, drug use, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, and/or other categories.
