Urgent need to address “resurgent” gay global epidemic, says English public health chief
Gus Cairns, 2013-11-23 20:00

There is an increasing and potentially catastrophic HIV and sexual health epidemic in gay men and men who have sex with men (MSM) in every part of the world, Professor Kevin Fenton, the National Director of Health and Wellbeing at Public Health England, told the BHIVA autumn conference last week.

Despite having an increasing number of tools to prevent HIV, Professor Fenton added, HIV prevalence in MSM is increasing almost everywhere and incidence (the proportion who acquire HIV every year) is stubbornly refusing to change.

Professor Fenton said that optimising HIV testing programmes for MSM, particularly in countries where they faced criminalisation and discrimination, was key to controlling the epidemic, but that this would be a “challenge”.
