The Islands of Southeast Asia Network on MSM, TG, and HIV (ISEAN) and the Humanist Institute for Co-operation with Developing Countries (Hivos) jointly submitted a regional proposal to the Global Fund for AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis (GFATM) Round 10 in 2010. The proposal has the main goal of reducing the: (a) Vulnerability and risks of men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) and transgender (TG) to HIV infection; and (b) Impact of HIV on their lives in the Islands of Southeast Asia. It intends to address critical gaps in supporting and scaling up activities that reduce HIV/AIDS among MSMs and TGs.
