MSMIT Training Manual
ECOM has prepared and offers a Training Manual to introduce the MSM Implementation Toolkit “Implementing Comprehensive HIV and STI Programmes with Men Who Have Sex with Men” (MSMIT).
MSMIT provides a detailed guidance on how to build programs to control the HIV epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM). In is based on the WHO guidelines developed using scientific research data and best practices. Now MSMIT is the most up-to-date toolkit used by all international experts.
The Training Manual developed by ECOM helps to prepare and hold a meeting (workshop) to present MSMIT to community activists, experts and public officials from municipal and government healthcare agencies and other professionals involved in health-related activities with MSM.
The Manual allows presenting MSMIT in a consistent manner, part by part, or selecting the most relevant issues and discussing them in detail after presenting the general context of MSMIT.
