HIV/AIDS

Men who have sex with men

Thirty years after the initial description of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in North American men who have sex with men (MSM), the global community faces re-emerging and newly documented HIV epidemics in MSM worldwide, including in regions with generalized epidemics. There is a clear need to scale up and improve (and, in some cases, to start) sustained, comprehensive and effective HIV prevention efforts targeting MSM in low, middle, and high income countries alike. These efforts must be complemented by a better understanding of which interventions work best, and in what contexts.
