Key Populations - Strengthening Technical Assistance and Response for Sustainable HIV Prevention and Treatment

The KP-STAR team — IntraHealth Namibia, IntraHealth International, Walvis Bay Corridor Group, and key population-led civil society organisations Rights not Rescue Trust, Rights for All Movements, and Wings to Transcend Namibia Trust — brings together local and international nongovernmental organisations, key population-led civil society organisations, and the private sector to offer decades of collective experience supporting the scale-up of clinical and community-based services for key and vulnerable populations in Namibia.

 

While Namibia has made tremendous progress in its HIV response, notable imbalances remain in coverage and outcomes for key populations — particularly sex workers, clients of sex workers, men who have sex with men, and transgender women. KP-STAR supports Namibia to rapidly accelerate the coverage of systematic, data-driven, key population-competent interventions to achieve results under the four activity components:

 

  • Increase demand for and access to comprehensive HIV prevention and treatment services and interventions for key populations.

  • Strengthen the capacity and sustainability of civil society and other key stakeholders to advocate for and implement HIV activities for and by key populations.

  • Strengthen data management and processes for planning, monitoring, and quality assurance of key population programs.

  • Provide training, mentoring and supportive supervision to help Namibia's health workers deliver high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate health services.
