Strengthening the involvement of young people in the HIV movement
ABOUT THIS WEBSITE
The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures enforced to contain its spread have greatly affected the lives of young key populations (YKPs) and young people living with HIV (YPLHIV) in Asia and the Pacific. This website is intended to gather and pool together available information and guidance on COVID-19 that cater to YKPs and YPLHIV from Asia and the Pacific.
This platform will serve as an online resource to document and communicate on the challenges YKPs face in the pandemic as well as their approaches in identifying gaps, solutions and innovations in their responses to COVID-19. You will also find results from YKP studies during COVID-19, resources available for YKPs, and stories and lived experiences from young people across Asia and the Pacific.
The Asia Pacific Inter-Agency Task Team on Young Key Populations (IATT on YKPs) was established in 2009 as a joint platform composed of UN agencies and civil society partners to meet the HIV prevention and treatment needs of YKPs, including young men who have sex with men, young transgender people, young people who use drugs, young people living with HIV, young sex workers and young people living with HIV.
