AIDS 2010: Men Who have Sex with Men: Homophobia and HIV in Africa

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

HIV epidemics among Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) are unfolding across Africa. MSM are 19 times more likely to be infected with HIV in low and middle-income countries around the world and only one in five have access to the HIV prevention, care and treatment services they need. This session will outline the political, cultural and social barriers to ensuring quality service provision for MSM in Africa, from a variety of African leadership perspectives: human rights, religious politics, legal and political framework, and service delivery.
