The MSMIT (or the MSM Implementation Toolkit) is the most recent operational guidance available on the design and implementation of HIV and STI programs targeting gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men worldwide. This tool was developed and launched in 2015 by UNFPA, USAID, and MSMGF in close partnership with UNDP, WHO the Gates Foundation and over 100 experts from around the world. The publication targets public-health officials and program managers, as well as NGOs and health workers implementing HIV and STI programs with gay men. The MSMIT’s chapters are further organized across six areas of focus:
- community empowerment;
- addressing violence against men who have sex with men;
- condom and lubricant programming;
- health-care service delivery;
- information and communications technology; and
- program management.
