The MSMGF works to bring attention to and mobilize action to support policies, laws and other initiatives that promote and protect the health and human rights of men who have sex with men (MSM) worldwide. Our advocacy efforts are also directed toward increasing resources and elevating underrepresented issues that are unique to MSM and HIV in all world regions. The range of advocacy strategies employed by the MSMGF include policy analysis, monitoring AIDS-related policy- and decision-making processes, and developing and disseminating written statements and briefs through a think-tank approach that draws on expertise of our Steering Committee members from around the world.
The MSMGF is committed to utilizing a rights-based framework in our efforts to address HIV and public health. Key targets for advocacy include country governments, global donors, international development agencies and the family of UN agencies.
