Young Men Who Have Sex with Men: Health, Access, & HIV
Young Men Who Have Sex with Men: Health, Access, & HIV

Young men who have sex with men (YMSM) face the heightened risks of both populations, as well as a number of vulnerabilities that are unique to YMSM. Despite the clear need for intervention, YMSM are often left out of research, policy, and programs designed for general MSM, general youth, and the general population. While data on HIV among YMSM are extremely
limited, existing studies show high HIV prevalence among YMSM around the world.

This policy brief examines HIV risk factors and access to services among YMSM using data from the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF)’s 2012 Global Men’s Health and
Rights survey (2012 GMHR). The brief concludes with a set of recommendations for addressing the global HIV epidemic among YMSM.
