The Key Population Preceptorship (KPP) training is used to sensitize healthcare workers about the challenges and specific needs of key population groups, in particular MSM, transgender women and sex workers. These training sessions allow preceptorship trainers (members of the key population groups) to re-create health-related scenarios and provide a space for open and honest discussions regarding issues on their lifestyle, practices, and healthcare needs.
The KPP assists in decreasing stigma, increasing awareness, and will subsequently contribute to increasing the number of key population groups who are linked to and retained in care. The training has been delivered to healthcare workers in Trinidad, Suriname and Jamaica. The program will expand to include all cadre of staff who are involved in providing services at the healthcare facilities as well as administrative and ancillary staff.
