"This policy brief is an overview of social discrimination against gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) as it relates to HIV, and includes recommendations for concerted action and policy development. A review of literature that demonstrates the linkages between homophobia and vulnerability to HIV disease is presented with related examples. The recommendations–guided by a human rights framework–are intended for a global audience of advocates, researchers, service providers, public health practitioners, donors and policy makers."
