A new global survey shows that less than half of men who have sex with men (MSM) have access to HIV prevention and treatment services, according to a Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) statement. The study surveyed 5,000 MSM from various continents and found that the strongest predictor of limited access to HIV prevention and treatment was the level of homophobia experienced by the participants. Respondents reporting the lowest levels of knowledge and access to HIV preventions and interventions were in Asia and the Middle East, while participants from Africa reported the highest levels of homophobia.
