Men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women (TW) in Myanmar are disproportionately impacted by HIV, but report sub-optimal engagement in HIV testing and prevention. This thesis characterised the barriers and current levels of HIV testing among MSM and TW, explored the potential of novel HIV testing models to enhance HIV testing uptake and estimated current HIV burden among MSM and TW clients of a HIV testing clinic. The findings in this thesis can inform HIV prevention priorities and service delivery models in Myanmar to increase engagement of MSM and TW’s in HIV testing and prevention.
