Who We Are

The Consortium of MSM & Transgender Networks is comprised of 10 members of diverse size, scope and focus that cover all regions of the world.


Our mission is to strengthen the response to emerging HIV and AIDS epidemics among African/Black communities in the Diasporas.


We represent a diverse range of interests from Asia and the Pacific working together to advocate on, highlight and prioritize HIV issues that affect the lives of men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people, including rights, health and well-being. By influencing governments and opinion leaders, we are generating positive, enduring change.
