Men who have sex with men


Thirty years after the initial description of the HIV in North American men who have sex with men, the global community faces re-emerging and newly documented HIV epidemics in men who have sex with men, with estimated median HIV prevalence ranging from 4.3% in South East Asia to 14.9% in the African region (2015 data).

WHO supports partners to implement, scale up and improve sustained, comprehensive and effective HIV prevention, testing and treatment efforts targeting men who have sex with men in low-, middle-, and high-income countries alike, as well as address structural barriers such as criminalisation, stigma and discrimination.
