Membership Information

INFOSEM is a membership organization comprised of sexual minority (SM)-serving (e.g., lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexed, et al) community-based organizations (CBO). Membership is
by invitation only, which is
extended to the CBO by the Governing Council.

Non-governmental organizations
with established SM programs can
be considered for membership if
the SM program is led by the SM community and the program will be turned into a CBO.

SM CBOs that are interested in
joining INFOSEM should contact a local INFOSEM member for information. A membership
application will be forwarded to
the CBO from the regional
governing council representative member (RGCM).

Research Papers

The UK Department for International
Development (DFID) commissioned the
Programme Management Office (PMO) in
June 2005 to manage its funding support to the
Government of India’s (GOI) National AIDS
Control Programme Phase II (NACPII). The
DFID PMO objective has been to commission,
manage and monitor a number of new and
existing contracts and activities, using
resources to enable non governmental
organisations (NGOs) and other civil society
stakeholders to implement innovative initiatives
to supplement ongoing HIV/AIDS programmes.
That programme was completed in March

>> UNESCO workshop for outreach workers
In September 2006, UNESCO, supported by CDC and UNAIDS, organized the first workshop for outreach workers and peer educators working in projects providing HIV prevention and care services to MSM in the Greater Mekong region.

The presentations during the workshop, as well as an Outreach Worker HIV knowledge test tool that was tested and finalized during this event, have been posted on the UNESCO Bangkok Clearinghouse Website below:

I hope you find these materials useful. The workshop was extremely well liked by participants, for many of whom it was the first time to travel abroad and meet with colleagues working in the same area of work but in other countries.

UNESCO hopes that its recent proposal for future funding submitted to CDC and USAID to organize a follow-up event and work further on standardizing some basic tools for outreach to MSM will be successful.
