MSM HIV_Research_Guidance_2012-1

Fortunately, the HIV pandemic is gradually slowing. UNAIDS estimates that there were 1.8 million new infections in 2009, compared to 2.2 million in 2001. Even more significant is the decrease in HIV-related mortality globally. That said, HIV is still a major health concern (especially in Africa) and while the rate of new infections may have slowed, there are still 34 million people living with HIV worldwide.

Bhutan: Country Snapshots - HIV and Men who have Sex with Men. UNAIDS, UNDP, Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health, HIV/AIDS Data Hub, et al (2012)

MSMSnapshots-Bhutan-1

The MSM Country Snapshots is a new publication series that disseminates strategic information on HIV and men who have sex with men (MSM) in Asia and the Pacific. The four- to five-page documents are intended to circulate good practices, share progress, stimulate discussion, and inform priority interventions and advocacy efforts.

The Snapshots were initiated in recognition of the difficulty of accessing up-to-date country-level information on MSM and HIV. Most importantly, they allow for convenient access to key findings for anyone without paid subscription to academic journals or knowledge of sources for biological and behavioral surveillance data. The documents synthesize key findings at time of publication that span four areas of information: epidemiological, behavioural, programmatic, and legal.
