“PrEPARING ASIA: A new direction for HIV prevention among MSM in Asia” is a regional dialogue preparing the future roll-out of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for self-identified gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in Asia. Organized by APCOM with the support from UNAIDS and WHO, the dialogue will bring in representatives of gay identified men, other men who have sex with men (MSM), sexual health policy makers, program planners and service providers and explore the potential of scaling up PrEP. Conducted in Bangkok from 23 to 25 September 2015, the Dialogue was part of the regional rolling out of the new WHO Guidelines, which recommended PrEP as an important additional component of comprehensive HIV prevention for high risk MSM.
The purpose of the Dialogue was to:
- assess awareness about PrEP among MSM and health providers
- assess perceptions about PrEP acceptability among MSM
- assess perceptions about PrEP feasibility among health planners and providers
- articulate and document issues for the consultation on rolling out PrEP in Asia
