dc.description.abstractA concerted global effort to end HIV transmissions is necessary. In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), men who have sex with men (MSM) constitute a hard-to-reach population, due to the social stigma and criminalisation of homosexuality in most countries. When compared to other MENA countries, Lebanon is one of the safest for sexual minority groups. Its capital city, Beirut, is one of the most socially progressive cities in MENA, with a vibrant MSM community and gay bars, clubs and community centers. Yet, we know little about HIV prevalence, incidence and risk factors in MSM in Lebanon, a group disproportionately affected by the condition. This editorial sets an agenda for HIV research in this key population.en
