Access to HIV Prevention Services in East African Cross-Border Areas: A 2016-2017 Cross-Sectional Bio-Behavioural Study. Journal of International AIDS Society, 23(Suppl. 3), e25523. PMCID: PMC7325514
AbstractINTRODUCTION: East African cross-border areas are visited by mobile and vulnerable populations, such as men, female sex workers, men who have sex with men, truck drivers, fisher folks and young women. These groups may not benefit from traditional HIV prevention interventions available at the health facilities where they live, but may benefit from services offered at public venues identified as places where people meet new sexual partners (e.g. bars, nightclubs, transportation hubs and guest houses). The goal of this analysis was to estimate availability, access and uptake of prevention services by populations who visit these venues.
