MSM report Southern AfricaMay 2013, 80 pages

New report documents widespread neglect by governments and donors: Underfinancing, discrimination, and stigma undermine fight against HIV among gay men, other men who have sex with men, and transgender people.

The report focuses on Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Where programs for GMT (gay men, other men who have sex with men, and transgender individuals) exist in Southern Africa, they attempt to address the urgent needs of the population living in the region. However, there are too few programs that have a transformative effect on the epidemic overall. Funding by donors and national governments is not sufficient to achieve real public health impact or evaluate outcomes. Attention must shift from global and national strategy documents to actual implementation—developing robust, achievable indicators for programs serving GMT, and building the evidence base around high-impact interventions.


Being strategic on HIV requires greater attention to implementing programs for GMT and other key populations in Southern Africa. An AIDS-free generation will never be achieved without Southern Africa and Southern Africa cannot achieve an AIDS-free generation without greater attention to the needs of GMT.

Prevention Gap Report2016, 286 pages

This new report from UNAIDS shows that efforts to reach fewer than 500 000 new HIV infections by 2020 are off track. This simple conclusion sits atop a complex and diverse global tapestry. Data from 146 countries show that some have achieved declines in new HIV infections among adults of 50% or more over the last 10 years, while many others have not made measurable progress, and yet others have experienced worrying increases in new HIV infections.

From the Global Forum on MSM & HIV comes this  policy brief focusing on the connection between anti-LGBT violence and HIV, attempting to convey a sense of the frequency of these attacks, their exceptional brutality, and their impact on HIV prevention and treatment services.

Due to their increased visibility, LGBT rights defenders and service providers are at increased risk for violent attacks. Not only are these incidents violations of basic human rights, they have a devastating impact on HIV services for LGBT populations.

Taken together, the evidence makes a powerful argument that efforts to prevent, mitigate, and document anti-LGBT violence are indispensable to all HIV-related work. Not only are HIV funders ethically obligated to protect the safety of frontline activists and service providers, their support of anti-violence measures is essential for securing provision of and access to HIV services for LGBT people.

In 2010, AIDS Accountability initiated research to analyze the degree to which countries are fulfilling commitments to LGBT people in the response to HIV and AIDS.

AIDS_Accountability_Scorecard_LGBT_2011Irrespective of the level of exposure to HIV, LGBT people across the world face stigma and discrimination that deny them universal access to helath care. This report examines the situation which is exacerbated for lesbian and transgender women, as stigma and discrimination worsen barriers to accessing quality health care. Moreover, these women and transgender men are more vulnerable to homophobic rape and other forms of physical violence that put them at increased risk of HIV infection.
