Spotlight on Action + Access (MSMGF)


Dear Ias,

You are registered for the 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) but have not yet signed up to attend the pre-conference meetings that are part of your registration package. 

Delegates can sign up for a total of three pre-conferences until capacity is reached, so be sure to make your selection as soon as possible. 

The pre-conference programme – a select group of independently organized meetings – will take place for the first time within the main conference venue, the International Convention Centre (ICC), on 16-17 July, immediately before the opening of AIDS 2016.
Spotlight on Action + Access: Rights and Demands of Gay and Bisexual Men in the Global HIV Response

MSMGF (The Global Forum on MSM & HIV) will host its AIDS 2016 pre-conference, Action + Access: Rights and Demands of Gay and Bisexual Men in the Global HIV Response, on 16 July 2016 in Durban, South Africa. The event will bring together 700 advocates, researchers, and service providers to discuss issues of concern for men who have sex with men (MSM) working to end AIDS. This year’s pre-conference will shine a spotlight on African LGBT movements and their role in the HIV response.
Action + Access will address issues ranging from criminalization to structural factors that block access to HIV prevention, HIV treatment, and other sexual health services. Sessions will also cover community best practices, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), sexually transmitted infections, and the use of Internet-based communications to reach MSM.
