The Vancouver-based non-profit Community-Based Research Centre for Gay Men's Health (CBRC) runs several projects designed to improve health for men who have sex with men (MSM). Among them are the annual Gay Men's Health Summit; the Sex Now health survey; the Investigaytors program, which helps young men learn and practise research and statistics skills; and the GBT2Q Health Network, a British Columbian resource that involves knowledge exchange, capacity building, and advocacy for health issues, and includes activities such as webinars and policy working groups.
Vancouver has long been at the forefront of progress in LGBT health and the rapid growth of a local queer male health organization will help to maintain that momentum going into the future on a national level.
