The tool also covers the use of information and communications technology in programming, and offers strategies for managing programs and building the capacity of organizations of men who have sex with men. It contains examples of good practices from around the world that can be used to support efforts to plan programmes and services with men who have sex with men.

The tool is designed for use by public-health officials, managers of HIV and STI programs, NGOs – including community and civil-society organizations – and health workers. It may also be of interest to international funding agencies, health policymakers and advocates.
