Stigma toward men who have sex with men among future healthcare providers in Malaysia: would more interpersonal contact reduce prejudice?
This study sought to inform interventions to reduce stigma toward men who have sex with men (MSM) living in countries with strong stigma toward MSM, particularly among healthcare providers. It found that multivariate analyses of variance suggest that medical and dental students who had interpersonal contact with MSM were less prejudiced toward and had lower intentions to discriminate against MSM.
