Tell Us What You Know about PrEP

It doesn’t matter if it’s a little or a lot, we want to hear from you.

Dear colleagues and friends,

Warm greetings from us in APCOM. We wish to extend our gratitude for your confidence to APCOM as a regional community representation of MSM and transgender people. We are very excited to share that, in partnership with UNAIDS and WHO, APCOM is organising a regional consultation exploring the feasibility of the implementation/scale up services of Pre Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in the region. Titled “PrEPARING ASIA: A new direction for HIV prevention among MSM” the consultation will bring in representatives of gay identified men, other men who have sex with men (MSM), transgender people, sexual health policy makers, program planners and service providers and explore the potential of scaling up PrEP. The consultation is expected to be conducted in Bangkok on 23-25 September 2015.

If you are a gay man, MSM or transgender individual living in Asia, we are kindly requesting you to accomplish the below survey. Through the survey, we are gathering initial thoughts and perceptions of the community living in Asia on PrEP and present the findings during the consultation.

The survey will also ask if you wish to participate in the regional meeting. The survey will serve as an application form from which APCOM screens potential individuals and community representatives as participants – with travel and accommodation cost being covered by APCOM.
