AB  - Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess sexual behavior and measure HIV
      prevalence among MSM in 2015, in Togo. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional
      study from February to March 2015 in nine major cities of Togo. The
      respondent-driven sampling method was used to recruit MSM. Behavioral data were
      collected by interviewer-administered questionnaires. The blood tests were then
      carried out among MSM to assess their HIV status. Data were inputted into an
      Epidata database and exported to STATA((R)) 9.0 for analysis. Qualitative
      variables were compared using the chi-2. Results: A total of 496 MSM were
      involved in this study, with 43.35% in the capital, Lome. Over the past 12
      months, 88.9% of MSM had had sexual intercourse with men and 24.1% of them had
      had sex with women. The last sexual intercourse was with a casual partner among
      52.9% of MSM. During the last 30 days preceding the survey, 68.5% of MSM had
      regularly used a condom during active anal intercourse and 71.9% had used it
      during passive anal intercourse. The national prevalence rate of HIV among MSM
      was 13.0%. The factors associated with HIV infection were age of MSM OR = 5.30
      [1.85-15.1], HIV testing history OR = 2.63 [1.18-5.87] and the city of residence 
      of MSM OR = 5.56 [2.90-10.64]. Conclusion: This study confirms that HIV
      prevalence among MSM is five times higher than in the general population (13% vs 
      2.5%). Thus, the need to rethink HIV sensitization and prevention strategies
      targeting hidden and stigmatized populations such as MSM.
