"An expanded area of work under Australia’s new international development strategy for HIV, Intensifying the response: Halting the spread is a focus on HIV prevention among men who have sex with men. The first objective of this scoping exercise was to map, review and analyse current and planned interventions addressing the rapid rise of new HIV infections among MSM in the Asia Pacific Region. The second objective was to provide AusAID with recommendations for maximising the impact of its contribution to comprehensive approaches to address HIV infection among MSM.

The focus countries for the scoping exercise were Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines and Vietnam. Potential AusAID support for regional level work was also explored. The scoping exercise was conducted by document review, mapping, key informant interviews and analysis of all data collected."
