This commentary considers the AIDS Education and Prevention special issue (volume 28, number 3) entitled “Behavioral HIV Prevention Interventions for Diverse Young Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM).” The research presented in this special issue highlights the importance of addressing sub-populations of young MSM in order to better understand the unique realities and risk-factors affecting HIV epidemics and intervention needs. Here, we focus on several broad topics raised in this special issue and comment on their implications for HIV research and practice targeting young MSM in low- and middle-income countries. We consider issues relevant to reaching hidden populations, tailoring interventions, and integrating new communications and bio-medical technologies in research and practice in low-resource settings.
