Who We Are.

MPact Global Action for Gay Men’s Health and Rights was founded in 2006 as The Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) by an international group of activists who were concerned about the disproportionate HIV burden being shouldered by gay and bisexual men.

We have since changed our name to reflect our desire for greater impact within the broader sexual health and human rights agendas for all men who have sex with men.

What We Do.

Our Vision

MPact envisions a world where the health and human rights of all men who have sex with men are actively recognized, realized, and respected.

Our Mission

To advocate for equitable access to effective HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support services for gay men and bisexual men, including those living with HIV, while promoting their health and human rights worldwide.

Our Values

In all of our work, MPact foregrounds the values of human rights, self-determination, and working in coalition. We employ approaches that are community-led, strengths-based, sex positive, critically reflexive, evidence informed, and results oriented.
