Mapping Pathways is a multi-national project to develop and nurture a research-driven, community-led global understanding of the emerging evidence base around the adoption of antiretroviral-based prevention strategies to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The evidence base is more than results from clinical trials - it must include stakeholder and community perspectives as well.

Policy Implications of The Lancet MSM & HIV Series

In light of the need to address key populations in the HIV epidemic, the Center for Strategic and International Studies is convening several authors to discuss a special issue of The Lancet focused on the global HIV epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM).

Thursday, September 6th
3:00pm—5:00pm (EST)
B1 Conference Room
Center for Strategic and International Studies
1800 K Street NW, Washington, D.C.

CSIS will host a dialogue focusing on the domestic and global policy implications of the new research and modeling presented in this special issue. Articles examine the subject from a variety of perspectives, including epidemiology, biological and behavioral factors in HIV transmission, the success of various interventions, costing a comprehensive response, and HIV among black MSM in the United States and elsewhere. Authors will discuss why current programs are failing and HIV epidemics among MSM are still increasing. Sharon Stash, CSIS Global Health Policy Center Senior Advisor, will moderate the discussion with authors Chris Beyrer, Kenneth H. Mayer, Greg A. Millett, and Patrick S. Sullivan, and discussant Chris Collins. The session will open with concise presentations of the key findings and policy recommendations, with the majority of the time reserved for questions and discussion.
