dc.description.abstractPublic Health England (PHE) has been funded by the MAC AIDS Foundation to deliver a programme of focused work to improve the health and wellbeing of black and minority ethnic (BME) men who have sex with men (MSM). PHE’s wider work on the health and wellbeing of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men has identified a trio of interacting health inequalities which disproportionately affect these men, these are: (i) sexual health and HIV, (ii) mental health and wellbeing and alcohol, and (iii) drug and tobacco use. The work to develop the MSM health and wellbeing framework identified that in most areas BME MSM experience even more extreme inequalities than their white MSM counterparts. This may well be a result of the compound impacts of discrimination based on ethnicity and sexual orientation from multiple communities and dimensions. The BME MSM project provides an opportunity to increase the organisational understanding of the relationships between compound identity and health inequalities as well as increasing the visibility of these issues across the health and social care sector. Key outcomes for the project include improving the support for BME MSM through health and social care and community sector services as well as increasing the evidence base for interventions targeted at this specific community group The project has four key components: • increasing understanding of BME MSM identity, health and social care needs and access issues among BME, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and faith third sector organisations and leaders through three structured and interconnected learning sets • increase understanding of sexual orientation and minority identity among healthcare professionals through an e-learning module • increase the potential for visibility of BME LGBT people through boosting the relevant contents of the NHS and PHE image bank • pilot and evaluate five different models of direct intervention for BME MSMen
