|Samenvatting||HIV prevalence among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Jamaica is nearly 20 times the prevalence among the general adult population. Given the levels of stigma associated with homosexual practices and the repressive laws that keep the oppression legal and acceptable, this is not surprising. In the Caribbean, an organization like AIDS-Free World works to expose the ways in which legal and social discrimination against vulnerable groups — MSM, sex workers, migrants and drug users — is driving the region’s epidemics. This is fully in line with the mantra of international AIDS organizations: “know your epidemic”.|
