Our vision

We envision for gay, bisexual, queer, two-spirit and other men who have sex with men in Ontario an environment free of new HIV transmissions, supportive of those infected and affected by HIV and affirming of full sexual and emotional lives untainted by stigma, violence, and hate.

Knowledge Transfer Exchange - Definition

KTE is a dynamic process that includes synthesis, dissemination, exchange, and 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 interactions between gay men, front-line workers/ASOs, HIV researchers, Public Health and policymakers.

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, then shared through a variety of mediums.

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