The simple truth : UNAIDS is an LGBT Lobby group

 

 

 

UNAIDS are a group of United Nations agencies which are supposed to  be working to eliminate HIV worldwide.. United Nation agencies  first  responsibility  is  to  the  governments  of  United Nations  member states  however  despite  overwhelming  evidence  in peer-reviewed journals   of  the risk to health of Men having Sex with Men  UNAIDS   appears  to  prioritize  LGBT activism  over  evidence-based  medicine.

The  following indicate UNAIDS failure to address  the reality of  HIV epidemics among MSM preferring instead to play  the  role of LGBT activist  e.g.   calling disagreement with homosexual behaviour , homophobia.

On Page 123 of the document ” UNAIDS OUTLOOK 2010″ homophobia is defined as follows :

“What is homophobia?

UNAIDS describes homophobia as intolerance and contempt for those who have identities
and orientations other than heterosexual ones. It is an aversion, hatred, fear, prejudice or discrimination against homosexual men, bisexual people,transgender people,transvestites, lesbians and transsexuals. Homophobia confers a monopoly of normality on heterosexuality  , thus generating and encouraging contempt for those who diverge from the reference model.”

Abstract

Epidemics of HIV in MSM continue to expand in most low, middle, and upper income countries in 2013 and rates of new infection have been consistently high among young MSM. Current prevention and treatment strategies are insufficient for this next wave of HIV spread. We conducted a series of comprehensive reviews of HIV prevalence and incidence, risks for HIV, prevention and care, stigma and discrimination, and policy and advocacy options. The high per act transmission probability of receptive anal intercourse, sex role versatility among MSM, network level effects, and social and structural determinants play central roles in disproportionate disease burdens. HIV can be transmitted through large MSM networks at great speed. Molecular epidemiologic data show marked clustering of HIV in MSM networks, and high proportions of infections due to transmission from recent infections. Prevention strategies that lower biological risks, including those using antiretrovirals, offer promise for epidemic control, but are limited by structural factors including, discrimination, criminalization, and barriers to healthcare. Subepidemics, including among racial and ethnic minority MSM in the United States and UK, are particularly severe and will require culturally tailored efforts. For the promise of new and combined bio-behavioral interventions to be realized, clinically competent healthcare is necessary and community leadership, engagement, and empowerment are likely to be key. Addressing the expanding epidemics of HIV in MSM will require continued research, increased resources, political will, policy change, structural reform, community engagement, and strategic planning and programming, but it can and must be done.

Gay men hit hard by HIV/AIDS

16:11, July 11, 2011

Gay and bisexual men account for around one in every three new cases of HIV in China, according to the latest official statistics released by the Ministry of Health.

About 5 percent of the group – officially termed men who have sex with men, or MSM – are living with the virus, which is a rate that is 88 times higher than the national HIV prevalence rate of 0.057 percent.

The problem is particularly acute in large urban centers, with the prevalence rate in some southwestern cities reaching almost 20 percent.

However, the statistics also show that less than half of all gay and bisexual men have access to HIV screening, while about 15 percent of those who are infected are not receiving treatment.

Abstract

The sexual health of gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in the United States is not getting better despite considerable social, political and human rights advances. Instead of improving, HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) remain disproportionately high among MSM and have been increasing for almost two decades. The disproportionate and worsening burden of HIV and otherSTIs among MSM requires an urgent re-assessment of what we have been doing as a nation to reduce these infections, how we have been doing it, and the scale of our efforts.A sexual health approach has the potential to improve our understanding of MSM’ssexual behavior and relationships, reduce HIV and STI incidence, and improve the health and well-being of MSM.
