MSM, HIV and the Road to Universal Access: How Far Have We Come?

August 2008


The MSM Initiative

In an effort to significantly reduce HIV infection and transmission among MSM in resource-limited countries, amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, has launched the MSM Initiative. The Initiative:

Supports and empowers grassroots MSM organizations -- Through small community awards, the MSM Initiative provides MSM groups with access to HIV information, education, and prevention services; conducts outreach and advocacy; and helps create and sustain safe spaces.

Builds understanding and awareness of HIV epidemics among MSM -- The MSM Initiative identifies and fills knowledge gaps about MSM and HIV; shares best practices; and uses research findings to build community and political support.

Advocates for effective policies and increased funding -- The MSM Initiative assists local, regional, and international efforts to combat discrimination and criminalization; increases access to healthcare; and makes HIV among MSM a global public health and funding priority.
