Description:

MSM report Southern AfricaMay 2013, 80 pages

New report documents widespread neglect by governments and donors: Underfinancing, discrimination, and stigma undermine fight against HIV among gay men, other men who have sex with men, and transgender people.

The report focuses on Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Where programs for GMT (gay men, other men who have sex with men, and transgender individuals) exist in Southern Africa, they attempt to address the urgent needs of the population living in the region. However, there are too few programs that have a transformative effect on the epidemic overall. Funding by donors and national governments is not sufficient to achieve real public health impact or evaluate outcomes. Attention must shift from global and national strategy documents to actual implementation—developing robust, achievable indicators for programs serving GMT, and building the evidence base around high-impact interventions.


Being strategic on HIV requires greater attention to implementing programs for GMT and other key populations in Southern Africa. An AIDS-free generation will never be achieved without Southern Africa and Southern Africa cannot achieve an AIDS-free generation without greater attention to the needs of GMT.
