Methods: This article, focusing only on outreach activities among key populations, analyzes quantitative, and qualitative program data collected during implementation to examine temporal trends in HIVST distribution and their evolution in the context of the COVID health crisis. Specifically, we investigated the impact on, the adaptation of and the disruption of field activities. Secondary distribution was also negatively impacted. Peer educators showed resilience and adapted by relocating from public to private areas, reducing group sizes, moving night activities to the daytime, increasing the use of social networks, integrating hygiene measures, and promoting assisted HIVST as an alternative to conventional rapid testing.
From June onward, with the routine management of the COVID pandemic, a catch-up phenomenon was observed with the resumption of activities in Senegal, the opening of new distribution sites, a rebound in the of distributed HIVST kits, a resurgence in larger group activities, and a rebound in the average of distributed HIVST kits per primary contact. Conclusions: Although imperfect, the program data provide useful information to describe changes in the implementation of HIVST outreach activities over time. Focus groups and individual interviews allowed us to document the adaptations made by peer educators, with variations across countries and populations.
These adaptations demonstrate the resilience and learning capacities of peer educators and key populations.
