HIV and Homosexuality in Pakistan. Rajabali AY, Khan S, Warraich HJ, et al (2008)

HIV and Homosexuality in Pakistan. Rajabali AY, Khan S, Warraich HJ, et al (2008) In Pakistan, seven times more men are reported to be infected with HIV than women. Among the Pakistani population, modes of HIV transmission include infection through sexual contact, contaminated blood and blood products, injecting drug use, and mother-to-child transmission. Although most sexual transmission of HIV results from unsafe heterosexual contact, homosexual and bisexual contact also represent important modes of transmission. According to unpublished reports, the prevalence of HIV among homosexual and bisexual Pakistani men is reaching alarming proportions. We describe the Pakistani homosexual and bisexual culture, review statistics regarding HIV prevalence and risk behaviour, and identify areas of improvement in the HIV policy with specific focus on men who have sex with men.

Mapping Transgender Groups, Organisations and Networks in South Asia. The Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health (2008)

APCOM Report_TG_Mapping_South_Asia

According to the policy brief titled “The Value of Investing in MSM Programs in the Asia-Pacific Region”, for APCOM/USAID Health Policy Initiative (APCOM Policy Brief No. 1, March 2008), there is strong evidence establishing male-tomale sex as one of the driving forces of HIV transmission in the region. HIV prevalence among MSM and transgender populations ranges from 3% to 31% in Asia-Pacific countries (5 to 15 times higher than overall HIV prevalence). In India, for instance, the latest estimates by National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO), India, show that prevalence among MSM and transgender populations was 5.7% in 2006 as against the overall adult prevalence of 0.36%.

In far too many countries today, however, MSM continue to have little or no access to HIV services of any kind and as a result are plagued by high rates of infection.

Prevention and Treatment of HIV and Other STIs among Men who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Populations. WHO, UNAIDS and UNDP (2008)

Prevention and Treatment of HIV and Other STIs among Men who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Populations. WHO, UNAIDS and UNDP (2008) Surveillance and special surveys in many parts of the world show that the prevalence of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is high among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people compared with men in the general population. These infections can be transmitted to their sexual partners, who are men and, in some parts of the world, frequently women as well. In some countries where the epidemic had previously been contained, and in countries with good practices, a resurgence of HIV and other STIs has been noted, in particular, among populations of MSM.
