Abstract

"Sex between men occurs virtually in most societies. It is often stigmatized by society, and its public visibility, therefore, varies considerably from one country to another. Sex between men often involves anal intercourse, which carries a high risk of HIV transmission. Good HIV programmes addressing men who have sex with men (MSM) are thus vitally important—though up to now they have often been seriously neglected."
