Project Overview
The USAID-funded project, Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV (LINKAGES), under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) program is implemented by FHI 360 in partnership with Pact, IntraHealth International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and conducts a range of activities to reduce HIV transmission among key populations (KP) — sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender persons and people who inject drugs — and improve their enrollment and retention in care and treatment across the HIV cascade. LINKAGES will accelerate the ability of governments, key population leaders, organizations working with key populations, and private-sector providers to plan and implement services that reduce HIV transmission among key populations and their sexual partners and extend the lives of those already living with HIV.

The key elements of the FHI 360-led team’s strategic and technical approach are: 
  • Identifying key populations and locales and comprehensively assessing risk,
  • Diagnosing “leaks” and revealing access barriers within the HIV services cascade,
  • Scaling up “what works” while innovating to ensure the most strategic use of resources and access to newly emerging technologies,
  • Addressing structural barriers and transforming local KP organizations,
  • Ensuring interventions are sustainable over the long term, and
  • Supporting the mainstreaming of human rights, gender and competency and capacity development.
