The HIV epidemic continues to grow in Tajikistan, especially among people who inject drugs, sex workers, men who have sex with men and incarcerated populations. Despite their susceptibility to HIV,
members of these groups do not always have access to HIV prevention, testing and treatment. The purpose of this study was to identify and understand the gender constraints in accessing HIV services for key populations in Tajikistan. Using focus-group discussions and key informant interviews the assessment team collected information from members of key populations and those who work with them.

I became interested in the issue of gender identity of people who are commonly called ‘men who have sex with men’ (MSM) in Tajikistan in the summer of 2015, when I was conducting an evaluation of the national HIV program. This program is coordinated by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) since 2003. In the course of my evaluation, I had numerous meetings with the program beneficiaries from the three key populations affected by the HIV epidemic. Among these meetings were two focus groups in Kulyab and Dushanbe with people who are identified within the program as “MSM” (men who have sex with men).
