GMFA is a gay men's health charity, founded in 1992. It was originally called “Gay Men Fighting AIDS”, and was set up by a group of gay men who thought there was not enough HIV prevention work being targeted specfically at gay men. In 2001 it merged with the black gay men’s group Big Up and the following year it changed its name to “GMFA – the gay men’s health charity”.
GMFA became one organisation the fulfilled the aims of London’s combined PCT groups on HIV and AIDs, the Pan London HIV Prevention Programme, which were set out in the booklet “Making It Count”, published by Sigma Research. These organisations, including Pace and THT, would bid for contracts to cover parts of London’s HIV prevention work. For some years GMFA held the contract for small publications and training in London.
