MSMGF Youth Reference Group
Dear all,

The Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF) is pleased to announce a new call for members of the MSMGF Youth Reference Group (MSMGF YRG)!

The MSMGF YRG was first formed by a small and dedicated group of YMSM advocates at the 2010 MSMGF Pre-Conference on MSM and HIV, preceding the International AIDS Conference in Vienna. With support from the MSMGF Secretariat, the MSMGF YRG works to advocate for and empower YMSM within the global HIV response through skills building, cross networking and meaningful participation in the decision-making processes that affect YMSM. You can learn more about the MSMGF YRG by reading our Terms of Reference (pdf) at

The MSMGF YRG is currently seeking expressions of interest from activists who focus on issues concerning HIV among YMSM to fill six new vacancies.

Candidates openly living with HIV are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be between the ages of 18 and 30, and must be able to communicate effectively in English, the working language of the MSMGF YRG.

Responsibilities of MSMGF YRG members include participation in monthly conference calls, engaging in regular strategic planning discussions regarding YMSM advocacy and programming, and providing guidance and leadership on YMSM issues within the greater MSMGF.

Those who are interested in joining the MSMGF YRG should submit a CV/resume, contact details of two referees, and a brief statement (maximum three hundred words) addressing:
