PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF HIV AND OTHER SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS AMONG MEN WHO HAVE SEX WITH MEN AND TRANSGENDER PEOPLE

“From a health systems’ perspective, MSM and transgender people may delay or avoid seeking health, STI or HIV-related information, care and services as a result of perceived homophobia, transphobia, ignorance and insensitivity. MSM and transgender people may be less inclined to disclose their sexual orientation and other health-related behaviours in health settings that may otherwise encourage discussions between the provider and patient to inform subsequent clinical decision-making. “
