Most MSM Worldwide Can’t Find Basic HIV Prevention

Initial data from a new study show that most men who have sex with men (MSM) worldwide have difficulty finding HIV testing and counseling, as well as free condoms and lubricants, according to a statement from the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF). Fewer than half of MSM worldwide have access to the most basic HIV prevention and services. The study also found that stigma related to homophobia was higher for MSM in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and Latin America compared with MSM in North America, Western Europe and Australia. More than 5,000 people participated in the study. A full report on the study is expected in early 2011.
