HIV Prevention for MSM
Increasing and improving the programmatic, policy and funding actions taken on HIV prevention for Men who have sex with Men and identify as Heterosexual.
Men who have sex with men (MSM) are 19 times more likely to be infected with HIV than the general population in low- and middle-income countries. In light of this
fact, this alliance programme will:
Strengthen and support in country systems and interventions (including the identification of political and social opportunities) to further support the health
seeking behaviour of men who have sex with men who identify as heterosexual. This includes embarking on emerging issue partnerships.
Facilitate National MSM Summit's aimed at situation the acceleration of HIV Prevention programming targeted at this group, who otherwise fall off the radar of
"conventional" programming aimed at gay, bisexual or transgendered individuals.
Develop an internalised medium to long term knowledge sharing platform for correctional facilities to support the health seeking behaviour of men who have
sex with men in those facilities.
Produce Quarterly region review papers that articulate up to date best practices as well as challenges in the area of HIV Prevention for MSM's located in the
broader context of SRHR. These regional reports will cover three African countries per quarter and be incorporated into the Alliances quarterly newsletter.
