The Consortium is dedicated to addressing the HIV, sexual health and human rights needs of gay and bisexual men and transgender people. It aims to build well-informed, capacitated and engaged advocates at national, regional, and global levels . In turn, these achieve increased quality, investment and coverage of tailored and rights‐based programs for their communities.
Members of the Consortium bring unique experience from their specific context. They support a wide range of gay, bisexual and transgender people, including those who are living with HIV, young, migrants, sex workers or who use drugs. To ensure ‘no one is left behind’, the group has grown over time, with new members filling technical and geographic gaps.
