In the past years, we have witnessed some positive developments of the legal environment to combat discrimination based on sexual orientation in the European Union Member States, although a lot still remains to be done. The social situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, however, continues to be worrying. Homophobic and transphobic hate speech and hate crime are a common phenomenon in the European Union today.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) have borne a disproportionate burden of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and remain a markedly underresourced population globally. To better describe HIV epidemics among MSM in low- and middle-income countries, the authors conducted a systematic review of published and unpublished literature available after January 1, 2000 (2000–2009)

HIV is one of the greatest challenges of our lifetime. Since HIV was first discovered nearly 30 years ago, 60 million people worldwide have been infected with HIV and 25 million people have died from HIV-related diseases. These statistics reflect the difficulty healthcare workers face in managing the complexity of HIV disease, which can easily overwhelm a person’s immune system, especially without access to appropriate treatment and care.

Addressing HIV and Stigma in the Healthcare Setting in the Middle East and North Africa Region. This curriculum was developed because people living with HIV in the MENA Region wanted to
create a specific workshop that provided space for PLHIV and their supportive physicians to discuss stigma in the healthcare setting and unite in their responses to HIV. After piloting the workshop, participants wanted the opportunity to share sessions and information in their home countries.
The convening focused on population activities and context in an attempt to reach the above goals. While efforts to modify individual risk behaviors remain valuable, there was consensus that focusing solely upon individual behavioral interventions is insufficient. Environments that present risk of facilitating HIV transmission and ways to re-structure those settings to impede viral exposure must be the focus of new policy initiatives.

Gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) bear a disproportionately heavy burden of the HIV pandemic. In low- and middle-income countries, MSM are 19 times more likely to be infected with HIV than the general population.1 Despite elevated HIV prevalence rates and heightened vulnerability to factors that drive HIV transmission, MSM have been under-recognized, under-studied, under-funded, and under-served historically in the global response to HIV & AIDS.

Data show that HIV infection is now widespread among MSM throughout Asia. With the exception of the Philippines and Timor Leste, all countries for which information is available show epidemics of HIV infection among MSM, particularly in urban areas.
