Even the devil was given audience by God: Discourse analysis of the rhetoric against men who have sex with men in Ghana


HIV prevalence among men who have sex with men (MSM) is 16 times (18.1%) that of the general male population (1.1%) in Ghana (GAC et al. 2018). As such, the National HIV and AIDS Strategic Plan (NSP) espouses the public health and rights-based approaches to mitigate HIV infection among MSM. The media is a critical medium for information communication and a tool that drives social and behavioral change. 

This poster presents an analysis of media representation of MSM and sexual minority issues and potential effects on HIV epidemic control as part of the National HIV response.
