Text:The AIDS Foundation has issued a cry for help to the gay community as it struggles to understand the largest increase in HIV infections among MSM in nearly ten years. The Foundation wants community input into the development of its new strategies for HIV prevention, and to that end is hosting community forums in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, and Christchurch in late June and early July. "We want people to come along and ask questions, share their own views as to the reasons for this rise in the HIV epidemic and how it can be stopped," says executive director Rachael LeMesurier. "We believe that, if they are well supported, these forums have a very real chance of coming up with some strategies we can use to mount an effective response." The forums will be hosted by a local independent chairperson and will include a panel of NZAF and, in some centres, Body Positive.
