Promotion of the participation of the key population (MSM / MT) in the active search for people living with HIV, for their access to antiretroviral therapy, thereby improving individual and collective health by reducing the risk of new cases of HIV.

Modelos efectivos

  • Dialogue and consensus with those responsible for the Community Coordination Mechanisms.
  • Paying for results and expanding coverage of the pillars of the HIV care cascade: screening, reactivity, and link to health services.
  • The promotion of improvements in the access of trans women to community coordination mechanisms (MCC).


  • The permanent and articulating dialogue with the communities allows the development of comprehensive strategies for addressing key populations.
  • In the Amazonian indigenous populations, the comprehensive care strategy is more cost-efficient than the specific approach to a public health problem.
  • Public financing of interventions and their sustainability must be ensured before finalizing the implementation process to ensure their continuity and impact.
