The Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy (S/GAC) has announced a $100 million Key Populations Investment Fund (KPIF). The KPIF requests applications from ‘Prime Recipient’ organisations to scale up quality, key population (KP)-led community approaches to HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment programs.  Additionally, applications are requested to address social and structural factors (such as stigma, discrimination, violence, and human rights violations) that negatively impact KP’s access to and retention in these programs. Full details and application information can be found here

Prospective applicants are invited to two informational conference calls related to PEPFAR’s new initiative: Key Populations Investment Fund hosted by UNAIDS today Monday, 29 August and Thursday, 1 September. For more information on KPIF or questions about the conference call please contact kpif@state.gov.

In this instance key populations are defined as: gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM); transgender persons (TG), sex workers (SW), people who inject drugs (PWID), and people in prisons and other closed settings.
