Appropriate Prevention and Care Services for Men who Have Sex with Men and Transgender People in Resource-Limited Settings. Smart, T (2009)

Appropriate Prevention and Care Services for Men who Have Sex with Men and Transgender People in Resource-Limited Settings. Smart, T (2009) “In countries without laws to protect sex workers, drug users and men who have sex with men, only a fraction of the population has access to prevention. Conversely, in countries with legal protection and the protection of human rights for these people, many more have access to services. As a result, there are fewer infections, less demand for antiretroviral treatment and fewer deaths. Not only is it unethical not to protect these groups; it makes no sense from a health perspective. It hurts all of us.”

Gender Identity, Violence, and HIV among MSM and TG: A Literature Review and a Call for Screening. Betron M and E Gonzalez-Figueroa (2009)

Gender Identity_and_Violence_in_MSM_and_TGs_2009-1

There are two primary goals of this review. First, it aims to synthesize the literature on violence and related forms of stigma and discrimination among MSM and TG, particularly those engaging in sex work, through a gender perspective. In doing so, it analyzes ways in which violence and S&D among MSM and TG are gender based. Second, the review looks at how violence and related S&D against MSM and TG affects vulnerability to HIV.

Identifying Violence against Most-at-Risk Populations: A Focus on MSM and Transgenders - Training Manual for Health Providers. Egremy G, M Betron, and A Eckman (2009)

Identifying Violence_against_Most-at-Risk_Populations_A_Focus_on_MSM_and_Transgenders_2009-1

Men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgenders (TG) often face stigma, discrimination, poverty, violation of human rights, and homophobia. Negative attitudes and violence toward MSM and TG are common worldwide and, in fact, are condoned by many societies. Structural and institutional discrimination and violence against MSM and TG are supported by law enforcement and healthcare providers, who often perpetrate widespread corruption, intimidation, and harassment against gay men, MSM, and TG (Medina et al., 2006; Chakaprani et al., 2002; Khan et al., 2005). In this way, violence against MSM and TG is a form of gender-based violence (GBV).
