On November 4th, the USAID- and PEPFAR-supported EpiC project collaborated with Global Black Gay Men Connect (GBGMC) to host the next webinar in a series on topics related to HIV prevention, care, and treatment for key populations—sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender people, and people who inject drugs.

Social enterprise initiatives focused on meeting the needs of populations most affected by HIV are increasingly recognized as key components of an effective HIV response. These business innovations with social goals offer ways to expand access to services and overcome barriers to care while simultaneously advancing sustainable, locally-led responses to the epidemic.

This webinar explores examples of social enterprise initiatives with a focus on serving key population communities. Presenters address how social enterprises contribute to sustainable financing of a country’s HIV response, share promising aspects of social enterprise business models, and discuss challenges associated with developing HIV-focused social enterprises.
