AIDS 2012: The Lancet 2012 Special Theme Series: Men Who Have Sex with Men and HIV

For more information on this session, including access to speaker presentations, please see the conference Programme-at-a-Glance.

Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are among the most heavily burdened groups for HIV infection, and for limited access to prevention, treatment and care in many settings. The Lancet MSM series will take account of the realities of the lives of MSM, the epidemiology of HIV among the highly diverse global communities of gay, bisexual, and other MSM, and their HIV prevention and other health care needs. The series includes seven linked, comprehensive reviews and five invited commentaries. The series reviews which will be presented in this session include: the Global Epidemiology of HIV among MSM, HIV Prevention, Caring for the Whole Man, Health Disparities for African Diaspora MSM, the Politics of Homophobia, Community Responses and Leadership, and a Call to Action for MSM and HIV.
