To generate and validate an innovative European model of good practice for HIV prevention in MSM for use across Europe, and particularly in ‘gay venues’. This will be supported through the collaborative efforts of a European network of organisations consisting of public administrations, academic organisations, NGOs who are active in HIV issues or defending the rights of gay people, and organisations which bring together gay business owners. The model of good practice which will be developed within the Everywhere project aims to put culturally adapted HIV prevention information and materials in clients’ hands in those environments where anonymous sex between men is practiced. This will contribute to raising awareness within MSM of HIV prevention messages by joining forces with four different businesses sectors that are associated with HIV preventing homosexual tourism and entertainment in Europe.
