The World Health Organization has published the first ever guidelines on the prevention and treatment of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people. Developed in consultation with key stakeholders and civil society around the globe, the guidelines assess the effectiveness of available interventions and emphasize the importance of a human rights approach to healthcare for these populations.
George Ayala, NGO Delegate for North America and Executive Director of the Global Forum on MSM and HIV, a key partner in producing the recommendations, participated in its launch on 21 June 2011 at the UNAIDS 28th Programme Coordinating Board meeting in Geneva.
