Key Populations Atlas

Key Populations Atlas

UNAIDS

UNAIDS has just relaunched its Key Populations Atlas, an online tool that provides a range of information about members of key populations worldwide, including sex workers, gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, transgender people and prisoners. In collaboration with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the World Health Organization, and the Division of Global HIV and Tuberculosis of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNAIDS collected, collated and assessed selected indicators into a single database in order to provide more local level data for policy-makers, program directors, and community activists and advocates, among others.

The Atlas also now includes data on people living with HIV, and new and updated information in a number of areas, such as stigma and discrimination, particularly in the health service sector, and the legal environment to, for example, better capture some of the structural challenges in mounting effective responses for key populations communities.

“Having data on the people who are the most affected by HIV is vital to getting the right HIV services available at the right locations” said Michel Sidibé, the Executive Director of UNAIDS. “The Key Populations Atlas allows UNAIDS to share the information we have for the most impact.”
