Men who have sex with men (MSM) are at high risk for HIV acquisition and transmission owing to the high risks associated with unprotected anal sex and barriers to accessing appropriate health services.

Prevention programmes should embrace early initiation of antiretroviral therapy for positive clients as part of their programming. High transmission risk groups such as MSM will benefit from such interventions.
