AbstractIn this report, we present the findings from a qualitative study examining the vulnerability to HIV of young men who have sex with men (MSM) in Kumasi, Ghana, and their prevention needs. The research was conducted in Kumasi, Ghana’s second largest urban center, by a team of researchers from Boston University’s Center for Global and Health and Development (CGHD) and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). The study is a component of the Project SEARCH task order funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It was designed and carried out in collaboration with FHI 360, based in the capital of Accra, which operates programs targeting MSM and other key populations in Kumasi, and the Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC).
