What is the situation for men who have sex with men (MSM) and HIV in eastern and southern Africa? To what extent are they protected or punished by law; are the right things being done to provide sexual health services; and what are the lessons learned from what has been done to date?
EHPSA commissioned the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to write an impressionistic account of the scope and range of MSM services across the region, with a particular focus on seven countries - Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia.
One of its key contributions lies in its identification of high quality and scalable interventions for appropriate MSM-friendly services. Despite the often unfavourable socio-legal situation, models and examples of HIV prevention, treatment and care services for MSM abound across the region.
