CATIE's Gay Men's Sexual Health Knowledge Centre

Summer 2012

Check out CATIE's Gay Men's Sexual Health Knowledge Centre! This online collection highlights key resources and tools for service providers who work with gay, bisexual, two-spirit, queer and other cisgender and transgender men who have sex with men.

The aim of the Gay Men's Sexual Health Knowledge Centre is to increase the capacity of frontline service providers to respond to the sexual health and other health needs of Canada's diverse communities of cisgender and transgender gay, bisexual, queer and two-spirit men and other men who have sex with men.

This initiative situates HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STI) treatment and prevention work for gay men within a broader sexual health framework that integrates the social determinants of health.
