From Shadows to Light: Advocacy for Children of HIV-affected Key Populations

Publications - Released in 2016

For many years now, the children of HIV-affected key populations—sex workers, transgender people, people who use drugs, and gay men and other men who have sex with me—have remained in the shadows, figuratively tucked behind their parents’ legs, out of sight. A broad alliance of community groups, NGOs and funders is emerging to bring these children into the light.

Between November 2014 and September 2016, an international working group gathered information, analysed it, and then came together with community, funder and NGO allies to identify the key issues and develop advocacy demands—and began to draw a roadmap for an advocacy strategy.
