Assessment of Kenyan Sexual Networks: Collecting evidence for interventions tor educe HIV/STI risk in Garissa, North Eastern Province, and Eastleigh, Nairobi
This paper presents evidence supporting the theory that although the population of North Eastern province has long been culturally and geographically isolated from the rest of Kenya, the sexual behaviors of key populations in Garissa are comparable to other areas of Kenya and do indeed put them and their sexual partners at risk of contracting HIV.
The Single-Visit Approach as a Cervical Cancer Prevention Strategy Among Women With HIV in Ethiopia: Successes and Lessons Learned
With the single-visit approach for cervical cancer prevention, women with positive “visual inspection of the cervix with acetic acid wash” test results receive immediate treatment of the precancerous lesion with cryotherapy. The approach worked successfully for women with HIV in Ethiopia in secondary and tertiary health facilities, with high screening and cryotherapy treatment rates.
This practical guide presents evidence and example activities that serve as a resource for program implementers and planners working to prevent HIV among female sex workers (FSWs), men who have sex with men (MSM), and people who inject drugs (PWID).
