This animation is directed towards young gay men in Chiang Mai.

Many young gay men (and other MSM) missed out on the successful HIV campaigns of the 1990s and often have low perceptions about personal HIV risk.

Recent reports suggest around 85% of Thai youth do not see HIV as something that they should be concerned about, even though 70% of all STI cases in Thailand occur among this group (IRINnews, 2006). This makes them an important population for Mplus+ to target with HIV prevention. Additional reports of sexually active young Thais show only 20-30% are using condoms consistently (UNAIDS, 2006). Public information on HIV prevention, which was once ubiquitous, has virtually disappeared and no mass public HIV prevention campaigns have been carried out for over a decade. Mplus+ recognises this and the serious decline in risk awareness among young MSM, which point to a likely increase in unsafe sexual behaviour. In Thailand, it is reported that HIV transmission is understood, but personal risk about sexual practices is not (TREAT ASIA, 2006). MSM seem to know about HIV prevention practices and tools (condoms and nonoil based lubricants), but still do not use them regularly and there is significant lack of knowledge regarding other STIs and prevention practices. This animation will be used to target young MSM and help them understand risk to HIV.

Primary project team members include: (1) Mr. Pad Thepsai (Outreach Manager: Mplus+, kamkadam@hotmail.com); (2) Dr. Christopher Walsh (Senior Lecturer: The Open University, c.s.walsh@open.ac.uk); (2) Dr. Peeranuch Jantarakupt (Assistant Dean for Research and Graduate Studies: McCormick Faculty of Nursing, Payap University, Peeranuch_J@payap.ac.th); and On-Anong Thammajinda (Lecturer: McCormick Faculty of Nursing, Payap University, onanongth@gmail.com)
