AbstractAddressing HIV-1/AIDS problem in China’s complex socioeconomic environment has never been straightforward. Dynamic economic changes over the past few decades continue to create new challenges to intervention efforts, particularly among one of the worst hit and hardest to reach populations, men who have sex with men (MSM). MSM represents a diverse population coming from all walks of life and largely resides in urban settings. Increasing proportion has been coming from young and well-educated professionals, including college students. Developing effective intervention measures to target MSM has become critical to China’s HIV-1/AIDS prevention efforts. Not only does recent data indicate that HIV-1 infections have been rising rapidly among the MSM in China, but studies have shown that Chinese MSM commonly participate in high-risk behaviors that make this population a potential bridge for generalized disease transmission. Comprehensive, coordinated and creative strategies from the key stake holders have to be implemented and reinforced in a timely fashion before the epidemic runs out of control and further spread into the general population.
