Within the framework of the ESTICOM project a training programme for Community Health Workers (CHWs) working with gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) will be developed and piloted in more than 20 European countries.
Our preliminary definition of CHWs includes all people who currently provide sexual health services directly to gay, bisexual and other MSM in a community (i.e. non-clinical) setting. Sexual health support for us includes services which relate to HIV and other STIs and/or viral hepatitis (hepatitis B and C), and other issues which can affect or influence sexual health.
