This report, by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, summarises the rationale, methods and findings of an in-depth appraisal of targeted HIV prevention and care interventions for men who have sex with men.

The appraisal was commissioned in support of a four-country initiative called the Sexual Health and Rights Programme (SHARP), coordinated by the Alliance, which seeks to build capacity among community based organisations to deliver targeted HIV prevention and care interventions for MSM.

Full of context, case studies, what worked well, and reccomendations, the report is useful resource for people designing and delivering similar programmes.
