The first-ever national study on men at risk for HIV in Ghana identified men who have sex with men not previously reached with comprehensive HIV services. Men in this population had an HIV prevalence ratio of 17.5 percent, compared to the overall national adult prevalence ratio of only 1.3 percent. The study, supported by FHI 360’s technical experts, provided information that has been used by the Government of Ghana, civil society and other development partners to design and implement a comprehensive intervention program to expand the reach of HIV services to this important population.
