MSM Victims

  • Uncategorized



Despitethe occurrence of men engaging in sex with other males (MSM) andTransgender (TG) in the United States, there is little informationabout such cases. From studies done, a high percentage of individualsface the incidences due to food and substance abuse. In almost allstates of US, more than one-third of people falling victims of MSMare HIV infected (Curtis, &amp Linares, 2014). This is a response tothe cases of MSM and TG in the USA

Causesof MSM and TG

Afew cases recorded by Registered Nurses (RN) whereby the victims facesexual violence from strangers. Over half of MSM victims faceviolation from peer groups. Some causes of MSM and TG noted by RNinclude Peer influence, food and substance abuse and genderimbalance. Records show that a significant number of patients treatedon a daily basis in various health facilities in the US fail todeliver the full information regarding the act since they dislike toexpose their acquaintances against such animosity (Morelli, 2017)

Waysto Minimize MSM and TG

Sincemost of the victims fail to reveal themselves against MSM and TG,guidance and counseling can give significant results where thevictims get teachings on how to avoid such incidences(Truglio-Londrigan, &amp Lewenson, 2013). Seminars are vital to thevictims to teach them the possible effects caused by MSM and TG. Inso doing, the cases can be minimal since only a small number willexperience the violation (Stanhope, 2016)


Notuntil the youth get teaching through seminars and guidance andcounseling that they can know the possible effects of MSM and TG. Byso doing, the cases against the act will be minimal, and RN will notface challenges brought about by MSM and TG victims.
