Our vision

To transform the way that sexual health information for gay men is delivered so that it is accurate, sex positive, evidence informed, holistic, empowering, diverse and stigma free.

Knowledge Transfer Exchange - Definition

Through the GMSH, KTE is considered a dynamic and continual process that includes synthesisdissemination, exchange and the evidence-based application of knowledge to improve and maintain a standard of good practice for those providing HIV prevention and sexual health programs for gay men at AIDS service organizations (ASO) in Ontario. This process takes place within our network through a system of interactions between gay men, front-line workers/ASOs, HIV researchers, public health and policy makers.

What does this look like?

Knowledge: includes all aspects of sexual health and factors that impact sexual health (including STIs, HCV and HIV) for gay and bisexual men in Ontario.

Transfer: occurs when new information or research has been acquired and is distilled in a format that is accessible and applicable for ASOs and gay/bi men in Ontario.

Exchange: occurs as a process to and from the GMSH office. Research, information and good practices are acquired from our network members and gay men in community and shared through a variety of mediums.

As an ASO worker, here are some ways that you can engage with our numerous KTE outputs:
