Abstract

"In response to the recommendation of a global consultation on “Prevention and treatment of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections among men who have sex with men and transgender populations” held in Geneva in September 2008, and the requests for action expressed by Member States, the World Health Organization Regional Office for the Western Pacific (WHO WPRO) took the lead in organizing the first regional consultation on “Health sector response to HIV/AIDS among men who have sex with men” in Hong Kong (China) from 18 to 20 February 2009. The aim of the consultation was to discuss ways of scaling up the health sector response to the emerging HIV epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender persons (TG) in the Western Pacific Region. The specific objectives were related to the use of strategic information, role of advocacy and promotion of a single comprehensive package of services for MSM and TG."
