MSM Community Symposium

Introduction
The gay and MSM community is experiencing increasing numbers diagnosed with HIV infection every year. Many of the MSM who are diagnosed are young (29 years and below).

We would like to take this opportunity to invite our community stakeholders to come together, as a community, for a meeting to discuss the issue of HIV and MSM in Singapore and to hopefully come up with new & better ideas to stop the spread of the infection and to assist those with HIV./AIDS amongst us.

This event will be held just before Pink Dot and will be a timely call for action to keep all members of our community in good health.

Objectives

  1. Provide updates on HIV and STI prevention , treatment and care
  2. Be a platform for brainstorming and sharing of resources
