The MSMGF Secretariat is already hard at work making arrangements for the 5th MSM Pre-Conference to the upcoming International AIDS Conference, to be held 21 July 2012 in Washington, DC. Having drawn more than 500 participants from over 80 countries at the last event preceding AIDS 2010 in Vienna, the MSM Pre-Conference has now become the largest global gathering focused on the health and human rights of men who have sex with men.
The success of last year’s event is owed in large part to substantial community input during the event’s design phase. Hundreds of activists, researchers, implementers and donors responded to our last Pre-Conference survey, telling us what issues they wanted to see addressed at the event. That input became the primary reference for members of the MSMGF Pre-Conference Planning Committee as they designed the program for the 2010 event.
The global AIDS landscape has changed significantly in the time since the last MSM Pre-Conference took place. To help ensure that this year’s event is as useful as possible to MSM advocates, we would like to hear from you about what topics and structuring would be most valuable for your work with MSM.
Please help shape the program by completing this quick survey. It is quite short and should take less than 2 minutes to complete:
You can learn more about the event by visiting the 2012 MSM Pre-Conference webpage at www.mpactglobal.org/AIDS2012.
