To achieve UNAIDS’ 90-90-90 goals at the country level, HIV programme planners are using new approaches to implement programmes, and it is critical to build the collective evidence base on which approaches work. Implementation science studies aim to identify the best approaches for delivering HIV services (i.e. those that increase acceptability, accessibility, feasibility, uptake, and cost effectiveness) among key populations (KPs) to improve epidemic control responses. PEPFAR and amfAR have supported KP implementation science studies to explore innovations and identify best practices among different KP groups in diverse settings. In this session, expert panelists will share the results of these studies, revealing new evidence-based strategies for addressing barriers to uptake of prevention, testing, treatment, and retention by KPs and discussing how study data are being used to improve programming. Engagement of KP community members in the research, as well as the use of structural interventions, will be highlighted.
