Insufficient Funding of HIV/AIDS Programs for Gay Men, MSM

A new report shows that low funding for HIV/AIDS programs that target gay men and men who have sex with men (MSM) may be holding back the goal of an “AIDS-free generation,” according to a statement by amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. Achieving an AIDS-free Generation for Gay Men and Other MSM was authored by amfAR and the Center for Public Health and Human Rights at Johns Hopkins University. The report found that resources to address HIV among MSM are insufficient and that existing funds are often diverted away from MSM-related services. Other findings include: With few exceptions, HIV programs deprioritize MSM; in many countries inadequate data make it difficult to establish the true burden of HIV among MSM; and in countries where homosexuality is criminalized, MSM forgo medical services even though those countries continue to receive funding. The report also includes recommendations for best practices for national governments, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
