New same sex and transgender Action Framework

A new UNAIDS Action Framework on Universal Access for Men who have Sex with Men and for Transgender People sets out how UNAIDS will facilitate and support universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for men who have sex with men and transgender people.

Acknowledging that ‘business as usual’ is no longer a viable response to the HIV-related risks of these groups, the Framework shows that collective responses to HIV in the men who have sex with men and transgender populations are failing. The problem has either been ignored – with insufficient data and analysis – or commitment and resources allocated to HIV programming in these populations fall far short of what is required.
