Global HIV rates among men who have sex with men (MSM) are soaring, according to a Johns Hopkins/World Bank study of HIV epidemics among MSM worldwide in 2010. According to a statement from the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF), HIV prevalence rates among MSM were as high as 21.4 percent in Malawi, 13.8 percent in Peru and 23 percent in Thailand. The study also showed that increasing HIV care among MSM would lead to overall declines in HIV epidemics among general populations.
