What we've achieved
Global Consortium of MSM Networks (GCMN):
ABDGN has been a member of GCMN since 2013 and the consortium continues to be an impressive global collaboration of MSN focused networks and organizations from around the world. GCMN is committed to ensuring MSM and transgender prevention and treatment needs are included, resourced, and addressed in the HIV response at local, national, regional and global levels.
The consortium has been an invaluable advocacy platform the capitalizes on the multi-regional aspects of ABDGN and our work with MSM key populations.
Diaspora Stream-International AIDS Conference:
Through a letter campaign, ABDGN successfully advocated for the inclusion of a Diaspora stream at the International AIDS Conferences for 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. Further, ABDGN led the coordination for the first ever Diaspora Regional Session in the main conference programme for AIDS 2012 and again for AIDS 2014. This was the first time a regional session was dedicated to a key population.
