BACKGROUND

The Eurasian Coalition on Male Health (ECOM) is an association of organizations, groups and activists in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA), advocating for improved access of men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people to evidence-based and human rights oriented services in the field of sexual and reproductive health, including HIV prevention, treatment, care and support.

ECOM unites the efforts of all stakeholders at cross-country level in Eastern Europe and Central Asia to create favorable conditions for all gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men and all trans people to have access to evidence-based and human rights-oriented health services, including HIV prevention and treatment.

One of the ECOM objectives is to strengthen enabling environments for HIV services for MSM and trans people, through fighting stigma and discrimination, promoting and protecting human rights, and removing legal and policy barriers.
