The World Health Organization, HIV Department, is currently in the process of consolidating guidance on HIV and key populations and developing technical briefs on adolescent key populations.

Although a significant effort has been made by many countries to reach people in key populations, the response remains inadequate with coverage low and access to services often inadequate and unacceptable.

To illustrate how a broad range of HIV programmes and services cater to the needs of adult and young key population groups, we are calling for examples of good practice to be included as case studies within the guidance. These examples of good practice will assist in improving the quality, coverage and equity of services and interventions for key populations.

WHO invites you to suggest programme examples of good practice for key populations affected by HIV through completing a short scoping survey.

The English survey can be found at and takes approximately 10 – 15 minutes. Other languages will be available shortly.

The closing date for programme examples is 30 November 2013.
