Technical Working Group for MSM of the National AIDS Authority
Stigma and discrimination, real or perceived, often prevent MSM and TG from accessing HIV/AIDS and STI prevention and care and treatment services in private or public health care facilities. This situation is threatening the lives of many MSM/TG who do not always have access to information they need regarding to health.
HIV prevalence among MSM is higher than among general population (5.1% for MSM in general, 8.7% only in Phnom Penh in 2005 compared to a projected 0.7% for the general population in 2010). New estimations and figures should be released for MSM and for the general population in the second semester of 2011 – this will be an opportunity to assess the impact of prevention programmes for MSM.
