The GMT Initiative

Since 2007, amfAR has been serving the HIV-related needs of gay men, other men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender individuals (collectively, GMT) throughout the developing world through its MSM Initiative. In 2012, the program was renamed The GMT Initiative to better reflect the diversity of the people it serves. Through small, targeted grants to grassroots groups, amfAR helps expand access to HIV education and prevention services; supports advocacy aimed at increasing funding for prevention and treatment services; and works to end the stigma, discrimination, and violence that threaten the lives of GMT and fuel the spread of HIV/AIDS.
