An International initiative by NFI for Marginalized Males

Technical Assistance and Support

Our organization is committed to promoting the growth and leadership of community-based organizations that serve males who engage in sexual activities with other males (MSM). We provide support and resources to enable these organizations to effectively implement their programs and initiatives.

Knowledge Generation and Management

We are dedicated to establishing a robust evidence base that can inform effective HIV and AIDS interventions for MSM. To this end, we have created both a physical and digital library of resources that contain a wide range of pertinent information and research.

Policy and Advocacy

Our organization is actively engaged in advocating for appropriate HIV and AIDS services for MSM at international, regional, national, and local levels. We work tirelessly to promote policies and practices that address the unique needs and challenges faced by MSM communities. Through advocacy efforts, we aim to ensure that MSM have access to comprehensive and inclusive HIV and AIDS services, including prevention, testing, treatment, care, and support.

This regional consultation brought together 380 governments, policy-makers, donors, researchers, grassroots and community based organisations from 22 countries across the Asia-Pacific region providing a space for dialogue, learning, networking, and skills building, towards enabling the expansion, strengthening and scaling up of strategies addressing sexual health and related HIV vulnerabilities in relation to males who have sex with males and transgender people. In addition, the consultation provided an opportunity to inform and develop strategic advocacy initiatives and deliberate on key policies related to these issues.
