Discussion Brief: The State of Investment in HIV Prevention for MSM in Asia and the Pacific. APCOM. (2014)

immage Investment in HIV programs for MSM has increased over the past several years in countries across the region. This progress is not shared equally among countries, however, and in many of the countries for which data are available, the share of new infections that are due to sex between men still outpaces the share of HIV prevention spending that targets MSM. Evidence is important not only for national strategic planning, but also for shaping how communities and institutions advocate for change.

MSM and Transgender Engagement in Global Fund New Funding Model Country Dialogue in Afghanistan. APCOM. (2014)

immage In 2014, the Global Fund’s New Funding Model (NFM) will begin operating. Inclusiveness of civil society and key affected populations (KAP) (including men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people) is a key feature of the NFM. It is also one of the main criteria in assessing whether funding applications are robust. Country Dialogue is the term used by the Global Fund to describe the inclusive, ongoing consultative processes at the country level that is meant to inform all stages of the NFM process. Therefore, the country dialogue process presents a significant opportunity for civil society organisations representing MSM and transgender people to be meaningfully involved in all the stages of the NFM.
