MAC’s Human Rights Initiative aims to facilitate effective linkages to care and support for HIV-infected and affected individuals; and to protect them from the harmful impact of stigma and discrimination. Despite the effectiveness of HIV treatment and HIV being a manageable chronic illness, individuals living with HIV continue experiencing human rights violations in many circumstances, including in the education sector and workplace. MAC aims to end this vicious cycle by vigorously engaging with the relevant stakeholders in order to heighten the awareness about the issue.

For those people who are highly drug dependent, with a resulting compromised immune system, COVID-19 presents a serious threat to life regardless of age. Governments, non-governmental (NGOs) and community-based organisations (CBOs) working to support people who use drugs, and other vulnerable and marginalised people in society, have had to react rapidly to the massive increase in COVID-19 transmission across countries and continents. The ten case studies presented here provide a snapshot of the responses of specific organisations and communities who work with people who use drugs and some other marginalised groups around the world.

These guidelines have been developed for healthcare providers on trans-competent healthcare services for transgender patients. We hope these guidelines will give you a better understanding of the experiences trans people face as they navigate their way through accessing health services. It is our hope that these guidelines will increase knowledge about trans-inclusive health services in order to create positive health care experiences for trans people and ensure their right to the highest attainable standard of health. This includes ensuring that healthcare meets the Availability, Accessibility, Acceptability, and Quality (AAAQ) framework set out in international human rights standards.

Men who have sex with men are a key population in the global response to HIV. Global targets are for 95% of men who have sex with men to be reached by HIV prevention, diagnosis and treatment services by 2025. To monitor progress to these important targets, estimates of the number of men who have sex with men need to be as close to the true number as possible.

The COVID-19 pandemic has starkly revealed the vast social, economic and health disparities experienced by trans and gender diverse communities even further. Trans people often delay or avoid seeking healthcare due to negative experiences of stigma and discrimination from health care providers. When they do seek healthcare, they report experiences of disrespect, lack of privacy and confidentiality and in many cases outright refusal of care. Additionally, trans people are experiencing increased difficulties getting access to hormones and gender-affirmative health care.
