GLMA releases hepatitis brochure for men who have sex with men

The Gay and Lesbian Medical Association on Friday announced the availability of a Spanish-language hepatitis brochure targeting men who have sex with men. The development and distribution of the brochure was supported through funding from drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline.

A recent survey showed that of 30 cities GLMA visited, San Antonio scored the lowest in hepatitis awareness among gay and bisexual men, a population at the greatest risk for the sexually transmitted disease. "We've been successful with our national campaign," said GLMA president Kenneth Haller Jr. "But one piece was missing. Outreach in the non-English speaking areas of the U.S. is essential if we are to successfully reduce the transmission of hepatitis A and B among MSM. Now we have the ability to communicate to a community that might not otherwise have access to this information."

Physicians, medical centers, public health departments, and others may request both the English and Spanish versions of the brochure by logging on to the GLMA web site at
