Chemsex in Asia

Chemsex impacts the lives of many men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) in Asia. There is an urgent need to understand this phenomenon. And there is a need to create effective responses to reduce harms and to support individuals as well as communities of MSM.

As a first step, a team of researchers – Laura Nevendorff (Indonesia), Theresia Puspoarum (Indonesia) and Doan Thanh Tung (Vietnam)– created a comprehensive manual on chemsex in Asia. It offers practical tools for community-based organisations across Asia, allowing them to respond to the specific needs of men who engage in chemsex.


The research report 'Community responses to chemsex in Asia' was initiated under the Asia Catalyst programme and funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The webinar is co-organised by Lighthouse Social Entreprise and Mainline.
