A Community-Based Study Exploring Male-to-Male Sex, Gender Identity and HIV Risk Transmission in Fiji

This report outlines the findings of the first research study to be conducted on men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgenders (TG) in Fiji since AIDS Task Force of Fiji (ATFF) conducted its last study in 1998.  Although not necessarily representative of all MSM and TG in Fiji, the data gathered in this research are extremely valuable in helping us to understand the risk behaviour and other factors among MSM and TG, and in enabling us to develop recommendations for future HIV prevention and health promotion actions. As a community-based study, this research was very much focused on generating information to help answer the question: “Where to from here?”
