Lomé, TOGO – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with UNAIDS and the Global Fund, is supporting the second West and Central Africa Key Populations (KP) workshop on the theme “Enhancing KP Interventions: Taking Stock and Moving Forward”. This 3-day workshop is organized by the USAID Regional HIV/AIDS Prevention and Care Project PACTE-VIH and hosted by the Government of Togo (Ministry of Health).

In West and Central Africa, the prevalence of HIV among the general population remains low, with 12 of 24 countries reporting a national HIV prevalence of less than 2 percent.  However, the prevalence among key populations in the region is between 3 and 30 times higher than the general population.  Ending the HIV epidemic in West and Central Africa requires that programs and policies take an innovative and targeted approach that emphasizes access to services for those populations, and that best programmatic practices are shared, replicated and scaled.
