What about the health of trans women in Latin America and the Caribbean? Challenges to HIV diagnoses and lack of comprehensive health care

Room
Networking Zones Channel
Session Description
This networking zone will present the "Guide to recommendations on comprehensive health care for Trans women in Latin America and the Caribbean," a trigger to work on strategies to improve high-quality access to health services as well as treatments for HIV. In many key populations the response to HIV is an unfinished topic where we must work intersectionally. Discrimination, stigma and exclusion of the trans population, as well as the violation of autonomy, are common practices in public and private health services. We must work against these so that access to quality comprehensive health is reflected in treatment, prevention, care, support, adherence and advice, as the lack of legal recognition of trans identities in Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the main reasons why this population has denied or violated access to the human right to health.

Male sex workers (MSW) who sell/exchange sex for money or goods comprise an extremely diverse population across and within countries worldwide. Information characterizing their practices, contexts where they live, and their needs is very limited, as these men are generally included as subsets of larger studies focused on gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) or even female sex workers. There is growing evidence of a sustained or increasing burden of HIV among some MSW. Shinners will tackle the biological, behavioral, and structural determinants in relation to MSW in this session.

#SAVESEXY: A gamified approach to HIV awareness and testing

Room
NGO Booth Channel
Session Description
In order to meet the UNAIDS goal of getting 90% of people living with HIV know their status, HIV testing services have to be ramped up. This means taking HIV testing outside the traditional facility-based setting and bringing it to communities where key populations can be found. This includes schools and workplaces. The main challenges to getting people tested for HIV is removing barriers (such as distance and economic costs) and addressing HIV testing-related stigma. #SAVESEXY gamifies the HIV testing process in order to address the stigma attached to it. The program uses, celebrities, social media, games, and different forms of art to make testing fun and accessible to as many people as possible. This booth allows you to experience #SAVESEXY firsthand, and for the first time ever, in a digital virtual format!

Louder Than TB: Cough it Up

Room
NGO Booth Channel
Session Description
Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death for people with HIV/AIDS, claiming more than one in four lives of people with HIV. Despite enormous gains made in the HIV epidemic, TB's deadly synergy with HIV/AIDS threatens to destabilize advances. While people are living with HIV, they are dying of TB. In 2018, heads of state and governments gathered at the United Nations to put an end to TB. With each passing year, 1.5 million people die from TB as political commitments remain unmet. Countries around the world need our help. It's long past time to put TB back on the global agenda. Let's raise our voices and speak directly to world leaders and decision-makers. Louder Than TB is a coalition of organizations from around the world dedicated to raising their voices in support of a unified vision: to one day silence TB for good, so that no person will have to die from this preventable and curable disease.
