The article offers information on the approaches and challenges in achieving community-based HIV responses of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals in Asia. It states that despite the wealth of some developed Asian countries, it lacks national coordination on condom use, HIV prevalence and HIV testing for men who have sex with men (MSM) and gay men. The barriers in boosting HIV treatment and testing include crime rates, lack of investment, cultural stigma and taboos.
