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

Using information and communication technologies (ICTs) for HIV prevention and education among gay, other MSM and transgender communities in today’s Web 2.0 world can improve access to services and resources regardless of location. This session critically explores why existing public health approaches to mobilizing communities for HIV prevention may be ineffective in achieving improved health and human rights. Drawing on community-based examples, panelists will share innovative developments using ICTs that have greater potential to improve impact on HIV prevention, health and human rights outcomes. All participants will be encouraged to reflect on their experiences of providing or receiving HIV prevention in gay, other MSM and transgender communities, as well as their experiences with ICTs in today’s Web 2.0 world. Practical recommendations will be suggested to inform future HIV prevention and community mobilization policy and practice.
