The Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance (GMSH) is a network of AIDS service organizations, whose mission is to support its members in building their own capacity, and the capacity among other service providers in their communities, to offer sexual health, HIV, and other services that meet the needs of cis- and trans-gender gay, bisexual, queer, two spirit and other men who have sex with men in Ontario.
The GMSH envisions for gay, bisexual, queer, two-spirit and other men who have sex with men in Ontario an environment free of new HIV transmissions, supportive of those infected and affected by HIV and affirming of full sexual and emotional lives untainted by stigma, violence and hate.
The Gay Men’s Sexual Health Coordinator (GMSH) works with all members of LGBTQ community as well as community partners to promote gay men’s sexual health within the catchment of HARS.
- Identifying issues in HIV prevention/MSM sexual health education.
