"This guideline will provide recommendations for regional and country partners on appropriate interventions designed to address needs of MSM and transgender people. It also provides an opportunity to highlight and emphasize the correlation between prevention and treatment in the response to the HIV epidemic among MSM and transgender people, particularly in light of increasing evidence about the preventive benefit of antiretroviral therapy (ART). This may lead to a substantial reduction in transmission at the population level."
