IAS-ILF Thematic Roundtable on Key Populations

24 February 2015 | Seattle, United States

To complement the work of the IAS’s KPs Priority, the IAS-ILF held a thematic roundtable on Key Populations (KPs). This event provided a space for a multi-stakeholder dialogue, serving as the basis to inform about the situation (i.e. raise mutual awareness), quantify the size of the problems and discuss interventions and organizations that can support existing efforts for wider access to HIV services, including through the creation of an enabling environment to end stigma and discrimination, for these difficult to reach populations and communities.
