Bangkok, 10 March 2021 – To shed light on sexualized drug use among men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women (TGW) and to understand the socio-sexual context of this practice in Asia and the Pacific, APCOM commissioned a scoping review of locally informed qualitative research under the technical guidance of Drs Angela Kelly-Hanku and Jamee Newland of the University of New South Wales (Australia) and financial support of the UNAIDS Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.  The objective of APCOM’s scoping review, titled “A qualitative scoping review of sexualised drug use (including Chemsex) of men who have sex with men and transgender women in Asia”, was to inform effective HIV, harm reduction and programmatic responses in the region, and to guide future qualitative research in the Asia and the Pacific.
