AIDS 2012: HIV in Gay and Bisexual Men
The impact of the HIV epidemic on gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) around the world has received considerable attention at the XIX International AIDS ConferenceExit Disclaimer (AIDS 2012). The LancetExit Disclaimer (the British medical journal) distributed a special issueExit Disclaimer on MSM across the globe to more than 20,000 conference attendees. The issue explores the unique aspects of the HIV epidemic in MSM, addresses the unique challenges faced by Black MSM around the world, and discusses ways to curb the HIV epidemic, including treatment-as-prevention and pre-exposure prophylaxis.
