Bridging the Gaps
This program works with key populations—sex workers, people who use drugs, and LGBT populations—who are disproportionately affected by HIV. Due to legal, political, and social factors institutionalizing stigma and social exclusion, these populations often cannot control their risk. As long as policies are not rights-based and key populations are criminalized, barriers to HIV services will remain, and the global target of zero new HIV transmissions by 2030 will be impossible.
