MSMGF Secretariat collaborates with MSMGF members around the world to bring you reports on recent developments concerning the health and human rights of MSM
The MSMGF is very excited to announce the launch of the new MSMGF collaborative blog! The blog features reports written by MSMGF members like you around the world, sharing information on recent developments concerning the health and human rights of MSM.
In addition to reporting new information relevant to the work of MSMGF members, the blog will also raise awareness within our global community about who our members are and the work they do. Each report opens with a short biography of the author, including a link to his or her profile in the MSMGF Social Network, making it easy for you to get in touch with them for more information.
We are thrilled to launch the blog with a series of four reports on the recent Top2Btm MSM Symposium that took place recently in Cape Town, South Africa. The reports come from four different MSMGF members based in South Africa, all working for different organizations in different capacities. The first piece in the series was written by Dr Kevin Rebe, medical director of the Ivan Toms Centre for Men’s Health in Cape Town. It gives a broad overview of the new material presented at the conference, including MSM epidemiology in Africa, prevention interventions for MSM, treatment challenges for MSM, and the current state of research on MSM. The additional reports in this series will be released later this week, offering a look at gaps in the program and interviews with conference participants.

The MSMGF Secretariat staff works with MSMGF members to identify events and projects appropriate for blog features. In some cases, the MSMGF Secretariat will identify an important event on the global calendar and invite local MSMGF members who are attending to report back. In other cases, MSMGF members can write to the Secretariat with an idea for a post. If you would like to feature your own work with MSM in an MSMGF blog post, please feel free to email us at [email protected]. Instructions for contributing are available on the MSMGF website here.
