Sex workers, people who use drugs and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are significantly more vulnerable to HIV than the general population. In 2019, 62% of new HIV infections occurred among key populations, yet in most countries they have the least access to prevention, treatment and care and support.

Bridging the Gaps, an alliance of nine international organisations and networks and, in the period 2011 – 2020, more than 120 partner organisations working at the local, national and regional levels, has worked across the globe contributing to ending the AIDS epidemic among key populations. Working together, Bridging the Gaps increased access to essential HIV and other SRHR services for key populations; built strong movements; strengthened the capacities of community-led organisations to hold governments accountable; and contributed to the greater realisation of human rights for key populations.

This document highlights the key findings drawn from the Bridging the Gaps programme. The independent end evaluation which was conducted by INTRAC in collaboration with Bridging the Gaps alliance partners and country and regional partners.
