Dear all,

The year 2011 saw a number of events that changed the global landscape for advocates working on issues concerning HIV among men who have sex with men (MSM). From groundbreaking epidemiological research to the collapse of Global Fund Round 11, the past 12 months have brought valuable opportunities and daunting challenges. Taking stock of these developments is essential for strengthening our response to the epidemic and enhancing our advocacy for MSM health and human rights worldwide.

With this in mind, the MSMGF has released a new report highlighting the top ten policy developments of 2011. Entitled, “Top 10 in 2011: Key Global Policy Developments Concerning MSM & HIV,” the document details the successes and failures of the past year in an effort to help chart a course forward.
The document can be found on the MSMGF’s website at:

We hope you find this document useful. We look forward to working together with you over the coming year to build the new victories of 2012, achieving a higher standard of health and human rights for MSM.

The Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF)
