Guideline for Conducting a Rapid Coverage Survey of HIV Services among Key Populations

November 2023 — This guideline provides specific instructions for program implementers on how to design and conduct a survey among KP individuals to collect and assess basic information about their exposure to programs, services they are receiving or would like to receive, and HIV risk and vulnerability. The survey is conducted annually by non-research personnel at selected hot spots in the program’s catchment area. Conducted as instructed, using the tools provided, this survey can help organizations improve and tailor programming, assess coverage and some dimensions of quality, and track progress toward targets for KP-oriented HIV programs. This survey approach is one of the recommended methods in the forthcoming HIV Prevention Outcome Monitoring Toolkit (POMT) – User guide of the Global Fund.
