The Gay Health Forum is an annual conference focusing on the sexual health and wellbeing of Men who have sex with Men (MSM). Co-ordinated annually by the Gay Health Network and the Gay Men’s Health Service HSE, the forum is now in its 17th year.
The Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) reports that the highest proportion of new HIV diagnoses in Ireland occurs among MSM, and the greatest burden of STIs falls among those aged under 25 years and among MSM. MSM are recognised in the National Sexual Health Strategy 2015-2020 as an at-risk group vulnerable to experiencing negative sexual health outcomes.
The annual Gay Health Forum provides an important platform for presentations from up to date research, surveillance, policy, and clinical information, from those involved with, and working in, the area of HIV and sexual health in Ireland and internationally.
Importantly, the forum presents an opportunity for the community of MSM to engage with service providers and policy makers in advancing the sexual health and wellbeing of MSM.
GHF2019 is free to attend. Places are limited and are assigned on a first registered basis. It is advised to register as soon as possible.
