Abstract

Despite global declines in HIV in India, prevalence remains high among key populations, such as men who have sex with men and people who inject drugs. Both these populations face similar challenges, namely both behaviors are criminalized and stigma in health care settings. Further, they require a wide range of services such as HIV counseling and testing, ART, TB treatment, opioid agonist therapy, STI diagnosis and treatment, condoms, etc. each of which are delivered via independent discrete venues. Dr Solomon will present findings and lessons learned from a cluster randomized trial that was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of integrated HIV prevention and treatment delivery on the HIV care continuum among key populations in India.
