To anticipate where the MSM, HIV, and human rights movements might be in another 25 years, the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) carried out a foresight scenario planning process with several dozen of its stakeholders and partners.

Released on International Human Rights Day, a disturbing and sobering report from MSMGF examines levels of violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people around the world, revealing a high frequency of brutal attacks across all regions. The report indicates that activists and HIV service providers are especially vulnerable, with attacks against community leaders resulting in interruptions to life-saving HIV services. The report underscores the urgent need for real, institutionalized protections for marginalized communities.

It provides user-friendly guidance, case studies, and tools specifically directed at strengthening and promoting advocacy towards the rights of LGBTI individuals in Southern and East Africa.

It may also be useful as an advocacy tool when advocating for rights-based services.

How do we close the gap between the people moving forward and the people being left behind? Similar to the Global report, the goal of the Gap Report is to provide the best possible data and to give information and analysis on the people being left behind.
HIV prevention efforts are being scaled up globally, to target sex workers as a key affected population in the HIV response. The voices and experiences of sex workers living with HIV are too often rendered invisible: this means that the additional needs and rights of sex workers living with HIV are often overlooked in forums that support the rights of general populations of people living with HIV. This paper sets out the demands of positive sex workers articulated by sex workers themselves.
