Men who have sex with men: homophobia in Africa and HIV

An interesting dialog on the HIV epidemic in Africa from the XVIII International Aids Conference, Vienna, Austria, has been provided via the Kaiser Family Foundation website.

Watch the video, listen to the podcast, or read the transcript.

HIV epidemics among Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) are unfolding across Africa. MSM are 19 times more likely to be infected with HIV in low and middle-income countries around the world and only one in five have access to the HIV prevention, care and treatment services they need. This session will outline the political, cultural and social barriers to ensuring quality service provision for MSM in Africa, from a variety of African leadership perspectives: human rights, religious politics, legal and political framework, and service delivery.
