GMSH Recruiting Manager of Capacity Building & Talent Development (Closed)

The Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance (GMSH) champions the health of 2GBTQ+ men in Ontario. We lead the development of cutting-edge sexual health promotion resources and collaborate with 28 HIV service organizations, public health representatives, researchers and other service providers in Ontario to ensure 2GBTQ+ men have the information, supports and services they need to have the sex they want.

The GMSH works with a range of stakeholders to develop and deliver:

  • Trainings that strengthen the skills of front-line staff linked to the GMSH;
  • Health information resources (pamphlets, booklets, websites);
  • Province-wide digital communications and engagement campaigns;
  • Conferences and networking opportunities for Alliance members; and
  • Other knowledge-transfer-and-exchange resources, tools and events.

A key pillar of our work is to increase the capacity of community based HIV service organization staff that make up our Alliance. It is through these efforts that we work to ensure the health care system can appropriately respond to the unique sexual health-related needs of 2GBTQ+ men.
