The first HIV case in Estonia was diagnosed in 1988, and since then a total of 9,263 HIV cases have been reported. The rate of newly diagnosed cases of HIV has decreased over the last decade (from 46.0 cases per 100,000 in 2005 to 20.5 cases in 2015), but it has been quite stable in the last few years (25 cases per 100,000 in 2013 and 23 cases in 1 2014) . Hetero- and homosexual transmission has increased as well as the proportion of cases among people older than 34 years.

Esimene HIVi juhtum diagnoositi Eestis 1988. aastal, sellest ajast alates on registreeritud 9263 HIVi nakatunut. Uute diagnoositud juhtumite arv on viimase 10 aasta jooksul vähenenud (2005.
aasta 46,0 juhtumilt 100 000 inimese kohta 2015. aasta 20,5 juhtumile), kuid viimasel paaril aastal on määr olnud suhteliselt stabiilne (2013. aastal 25 juhtumit 100 000 inimese kohta ja 2014. aastal 23). HIVi edasikandumine hetero- ja homoseksuaalsel teel on sagenenud, samuti on suurenenud vanemate kui 34aastaste nakatunud inimeste osakaal.

HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STI) testing rates among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Estonia are low. We collected data from 265 MSM in a national, online survey. Lifetime HIV testing was related to risky sexual behaviors and contacts with health care services, while lifetime STI testing was related only to contacts with health care services. In addition, some personal values were significant predictors of testing. For example, high achievement (personal success through demonstrating competence according to social standards) had a negative impact on lifetime HIV testing, and high interpersonal conformity (avoiding upsetting others) had a negative impact on lifetime STI testing. The results demonstrate the need to develop gay-friendly health services and to recognize the role of personal values and individual differences in values when designing attractive interventions to increase HIV/STI testing rates among MSM.

One of the world’s newest HIV epidemics is emerging now in Russia and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe. We report on the HIV risk characteristics of young Russian men who exchange sex for money or valuables, a group that constitutes almost one-fourth of men surveyed recently in gay-identified venues in St. Petersburg.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) continue to be at higher risk for negative health outcomes including
HIV, STIs, depression, substance use, suicidality, and anxiety. Associative relationships between homonegativity (internal and external) and these outcomes are used to explain the observed disproportionate impact.

Male sex workers who sell or exchange sex for money or goods encompass a very diverse population across and within countries worldwide. Information characterising their practices, contexts where they live, and their needs is limited, because these individuals are generally included as a subset of larger studies focused on gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) or even female sex workers.

This paper reports on research that aimed to identify risk factors and preventive behaviours for HIV/
STIs among men who have sex with men in Bulgaria, Kosovo, Macedonia and Romania. Twelve peer
researchers conducted interviews on sexual behaviour, condom use and HIV/STI awareness. Data
analysis revealed common themes across countries. Sexual activity takes place both in public spaces
and private homes.
Evidence supports that gay, lesbian, and transgender populations are at increased risk for mental health problems. The current study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of anxiety and depressive symptoms and related factors among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Estonia. This is
the only known study of its type in the Eastern European region.

An accurate estimation of the population size of men who have sex with men (MSM) is critical
to the success of HIV program planning and to monitoring of the response to epidemic
as a whole, but is quite often missing. In this study, our aim was to estimate the population
size of MSM in Tbilisi, Georgia and compare it with other estimates in the region.

The majority of early cases of HIV in Russia were among men who have sex with men (MSM). Despite this and the current resurgence of HIV among MSM globally, little systematic work has been done to assess current HIV risks.
