Resources Dedicated to Fighting HIV/AIDS Among MSM "Grossly Inefficient," Report Says
January 20, 2012
"Funding to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS consistently fails to reach programs designed to control the disease among gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM), according to a new analysis (.pdf) released Wednesday by amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research and the Center for Public Health and Human Rights (CPHHR) at Johns Hopkins University," an amfAR press release states. The report, titled "Achieving an AIDS-Free Generation for Gay Men and Other MSM," "finds that resources dedicated to addressing the epidemic among MSM are grossly insufficient, and that funding intended for this population is often diverted away from MSM-related services," the press release says (1/18). The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog notes, "The report authors looked at reporting data related to the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria HIV funding in eight countries -- China, Ethiopia, Guyana, India, Mozambique, Nigeria, Ukraine and Vietnam" (Mazzotta, 1/19).
