The Need

In Croatia, men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for more than 80% of HIV cases in 2012 (Figure 1). Discrimination and stigma against MSM and PLHIV is very high, resulting in a decrease in their quality of life. Based on research studies PLHIV report discrimination most often in the health system.
