The Manitoba 2SGBQ+ Men’s Health Study

The research study will inform culturally sensitive models of HIV service, healthcare, and support program delivery, interventions and campaigns for sexual and gender minority men in Manitoba. The study seeks to examine how various forms of marginalization, discrimination, and oppression affect the physical, mental, and sexual health of Manitoba’s Two-Spirit, gay, bisexual, and queer men. It seeks to explore this population’s access to, and experiences with HIV-related services and other health care and social programs in Manitoba.
