Balancing Research With Rights-Based Principles of Practice for Programming for Men Who Have Sex With Men

By John Nicholson | 22 Feb, 2011

By George Ayala, PsyD
MSM continue to shoulder a disproportionate burden of HIV infection in all regions of the world. Prevalence among MSM is higher than that of the general population in nearly every country reliably collecting and truthfully reporting HIV surveillance data (Baral et al. 2007). Elsewhere, the availability of reliable HIV surveillance data and a dearth of sensitively implemented social science research focused on MSM is a huge challenge, especially in repressive countries that either criminalize homosexuality or deny the existence of
gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and other samegender-
loving people within their borders.
