Start to finish: May – September 2018

Led by: Yvonne Erasmus, Ruth Stewart, Laurenz Langer

Partners: N/A

Funder: ViiV through the International HIV/AIDS Alliance

Region of focus: Worldwide

ACE themes: Producing useful research evidence; Supporting the use of research evidence in decision-making; Being responsive to contexts and needs in Africa

Description: This aim of this evidence synthesis project is to assess how information-communication technologies (ICT) can improve HIV programmes for transgender people in sub-Saharan Africa. However, given the dearth of evidence on eHealth interventions for transgender people in sub-Saharan Africa, the scope of this project was expanded to be global and include literature on all key populations.

The first step in this project is the production of an interactive evidence map on eHealth interventions for key populations worldwide. The map will then form the basis for a rapid evidence assessment (REA), the focus of which will be informed by the available evidence and consultation with the funder.
