In June 2014, the U.S. Agency for International Development awarded FHI 360 the Linkages across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV Project (LINKAGES), a five-year cooperative agreement funded by the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
FHI 360 is conducting a two-year clinical intervention trial that aims to promote adherence to a highly effective antiretroviral therapy among HIV-positive Chinese patients at an HIV clinic in Guangxi Province.
Biobehavioural Survey Guidelines For Populations At Risk For HIV, published by the Global HIV Strategic Information Working Group, updates guidance for using biologic and behavioral surveys.
Linkages across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV (LINKAGES): Country Resources
LINKAGES briefs, reports and other materials from country programs offer up-to-date knowledge and tools that can be utilized to strengthen key population HIV and AIDS programming efforts worldwide.
This brief aims to inform program implementers and policymakers on the key issues faced by sex workers, what has worked in HIV prevention efforts with sex workers, and actions that can be taken to better meet the needs of sex workers in the future.

Weissman A, Ngak S, Srean C, Sansothy N, Mills S, Ferradini L
PLoS One 2016 Apr; 11 (4): e0152906. [Journal Impact Factor: 3.234]
This survey of HIV prevalence and risk behaviors was conducted among transgender individuals in Cambodia. The data confirm that transgender individuals are one of the highest risk groups for HIV infection. For this group, the authors suggest the need for programmatic strategies that mitigate identified associated risks and facilitate access to HIV care.
