AIDS 2012: HIV in Gay and Bisexual Men
July 26, 2012
The impact of the HIV epidemic on gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) around the world has received considerable attention at the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012). The Lancet (the British medical journal) distributed a special issue on MSM across the globe to more than 20,000 conference attendees. The issue explores the unique aspects of the HIV epidemic in MSM, addresses the unique challenges faced by Black MSM around the world, and discusses ways to curb the HIV epidemic, including treatment-as-prevention and pre-exposure prophylaxis.
The journal also hosted a special session at AIDS 2012 on MSM, which featured Mr. Greg Millett, Senior Scientist at the CDC and CDC/HHS Liaison to White House Office of National AIDS Policy. Mr. Millett discussed his recent research on Black MSM in the United States.
