A (Cyber) Space for Community for HIV prevention

July 21, 2014 – Social media and Internet and communication technology (ICT) use for HIV prevention isn’t just for fun – it’s an innovative and important means of going further in coverage and scale for these programs.

This was the take-home message from “Like Me, Tweet Me, Post Me: Community Innovations Using Mobile and Online Technology by Gay Men, Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM), and Transgender Persons (TG) for Youth HIV Programming.” The session was part of the AIDS 2014 Global Village, and provided a chance for community-based programs from Thailand, Philippines, Australia, and the United States to share their HIV programming for MSM and transgender communities using ICTs.

But why ICT for HIV, and why now?
