MPact is directly linked to more than 120 community-based organizations in 62 countries who are fighting for the sexual health and human rights of gay and bisexual men around the world.
Technical support delivered by MPact aims to improve the quality and access of health services, increase meaningful engagement of marginalized communities in various national AIDS planning processes, and strengthen advocacy leadership.
We train activists to effectively lobby their respective governments for an improved HIV response and we sensitize and train health professionals to engage our communities meaningfully through one-on-one technical assistance, peer-to-peer exchange, and onward funding.
MPact implements the Bridging the Gaps project in collaboration with COC Netherlands and an alliance of 8 international organizations and global networks (AFEW, INPUD, ITPC, GNP+, Mainline, NSWP, SOAAIDS). Together, we implement one of the largest health and human rights programs in the world. Funded by the Dutch Foreign Ministry and led by Aids Fonds Netherlands, the project directly benefits LGBT people, sex workers and people who use drugs and grassroots organizations in 16 countries.
The Consortium of MSM & Transgender Networks is a groundbreaking alliance of global and regional networks by and for gay and bisexual men and transgender communities. It currently has 10 members of diverse size, scope and focus that, combined, cover all regions of the world. The Consortium began in 2013 in response to major common challenges that both gay and bisexual men and transgender networks continually face such as stigma, vulnerability to HIV and human rights abuses in every part of the world.
