Organizational Mapping Project of HIV/AIDS Groups for MSM and Transgenders in Developed Asia. The Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health (2010)

APCOM Mapping_Report_DA

HIV prevalence among MSM/TGs in countries (Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)in Developed Asia  is generally higher than the national figures. While public resources exist for combating HIV/AIDS, in the case of MSM/TGs in these countries, the lack of political leadership and social taboos against sexual minorities have curtailed preventive measures.

Organizational Mapping Project of HIV/AIDS Groups for MSM and Transgenders in Insular Southeast Asia. The Asia Pacific Coalition on Male Sexual Health (2010)

APCOM Mapping_Report_ISEAN

Asia has all the ingredients for a full-blown epidemic among men who have sex with men and transgenders. Evidence points to an increasing prevalence among MSM/TGs in many Asian countries. In many countries, evidence points to a sexual flip in the mode of transmission, with MSM/TGs becoming the face of the epidemic than heterosexuals. Response  to the infection has been limited, as most countries, if not all, are constrained by poverty, repressive political conditions, impaired healthcare infrastructures, and obscurantist religions. Available services are therefore a result of external interventions.

Policy Brief: It All Starts Here: Estimating the Size of Populations of Men who have Sex with Men and Transgender People. APCOM (2010)

Policy Brief_Estimating_Size_of_Populations_of_MSM_and_TGs_2010-1

Over the past two years it has become increasingly clear that scaling up services to most-at-risk populations (MARPs) around the world, particularly in concentrated epidemics, has to be prioritized if universal access to HIV prevention and care is to be achieved. An important challenge to reaching MARPs is that they are often marginalized, stigmatized and discriminated against. Partly as a result of this, and partly as a result of self-segregation, there is often a lack of information about these groups. If active efforts to significantly increase prevention, care and treatment service coverage for these vulnerable populations are to be made, we need to get to know their characteristics, including an estimation of the number of people that need these services.
