The following report outlines an investigation into the breadth of sexual health programming targeted toward men who have sex with men (MSM) across the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), which includes Cambodia, Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR), Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, and Guangxi and Yunnan provinces of the People's Republic of China.
This activity was completed by the Burnet Institute, on behalf of the USAID | Health Policy Initiative/Greater Mekong Region-China (HPI/GMR-C), with a view to building the policy and advocacy platform for organizations working with MSM across the GMS for the next 2-3 years. This activity was proposed by HPI/GMR-C and agreed to by the Regional Technical Board of the Purple Sky Network (the regional network of organizations working with MSM in the GMS) during a meeting in March 2008. Each member of the Regional Technical Board was invited to contribute to the investigation's direction and, through provision of organization-specific information, its content. The report aims to list the donors and organizations working in this programming area in the GMS with a view to eliciting directions for future advocacy. Where possible, the level of funding being directed toward HIV prevention and care activities for MSM, and the period during which those funds are guaranteed were explored. This investigation did not look into specific details of prevention, treatment, or care programs, such as availability of commodities (particularly condoms and lubricant). This is an important area for further review.
