Abstract

The spread of AIDS has seriously impacted developing countries on a scale unimaginable to industrialized countries. The number of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide was estimated to be 46 million people as of Dec. 2003, with a total of over 60 million people who were affected by the virus globally. Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the highest rate with 29 million cases (UNAIDS/WHO, 2003). However, the HIV cases within the confines of developing countries outside of the African continent have become a major concern for researchers and epidemiologist alike. This paper will review epidemiological literature that examines the connection between the sexual practices of men who have sex with men (MSM) and the contraction of HIV/AIDS in developing countries.
