Setting the Pace: Gay Men, MSM, and Transgender People in the Global AIDS Response

The theme of this year’s event is “Setting the Pace,” in recognition of the central role that gay men, other men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender people have played in responding to HIV since the first days of the epidemic. The International AIDS Society’s call for ‘stepping up the pace’ will not be possible without our continued leadership and proactive involvement.
