HIV among men who have sex with men creates cultural and economic issues that cut across societal lines in Asia Pacific countries

APCOM Satellite Forum, “MSM and HIV in Asia and the Pacific: Cross-cutting Issues”

BALI - The risk behaviours among MSM and TG in Asia Pacific combined with the unique social, cultural and economic pressures that influence them create cross-cutting issues that must be taken into account by those seeking to support, educate and advocate for these often neglected communities.

This was the topic of today’s satellite forum held yesterday by APCOM as part of the 9th International Congress on AIDS and the Asia Pacific (9 ICAAP). An overflow crowd of more than 200 Congress attendees filled every corer of the room to hear experts on specific Asia Pacific geographies discuss the unique challenges they face, and the creative solutions they are applying to reach MSM at risk in cultural environments that make such outreach especially complex.
