Hi, my name is Kent Klindera and I am the Director of the men who have sex with men (MSM) Initiative at amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. In 2007, we launched the MSM Initiative, a global programme to combat the spread and impact of HIV among gay men, other MSM, and transgender individuals in the developing world, and have been working with Positive Action ever since. Specifically, Positive Action currently supports this programme in the Asia Pacific Region, enabling us to provide funding and support to grassroots MSM organisations. Today, I’m pleased to take you on a tour of our programme and show you how we are tackling some of the major challenges faced by gay men, other MSM and transgender individuals in this region.
Director, MSM Initiative at amfAR
