The Department of Health Indonesia, The National AIDS Commission, Komisi Penanggulangan AIDS, et al (2007) Recent regional analyses indicate that unprotected sex among men who have sex with men (MSM) is making an important and at least in some cases growing contribution to HIV/AIDS epidemics in many Asian countries.

Men who have Sex with Men: The Missing Piece in National Responses to AIDS in Asia and the Pacific. UNAIDS (2007)

Men who have Sex with Men: The Missing Piece in National Responses to AIDS in Asia and the Pacific. UNAIDS (2007) "Men who have sex with Men – a missing piece" describes the status of a sizeable population group in Asia and the Pacific which is invisible in many ways on our social or public health radar. In many countries male-male sex is illegal; stigma towards such population is astounding and ignorance among medical profession significant. This makes the issue specific to MSM population exceptionally urgent from both social and disease prevention point of view. Indeed, an analysis of current response in the paper shows meager attention to MSM population in most of the current national responses to HIV that requires urgent attention of policy makers, social activists and the politicians.
