Dr. Ayala has worked in the non-profit HIV/AIDS sector managing multi-million dollar budgets and supervising large, interdisciplinary teams of professionals for nearly 25 years. His expertise ranges from international development and public health policy to program implementation and evaluation.
A clinical psychologist by training, Dr. Ayala has conducted HIV community-based social science and intervention research since 1996. His research has mainly focused on understanding the mechanisms through which social discrimination affects the risk for HIV among gay men of color in the U.S. He has more recently explored the facilitators and barriers to HIV-related services through his international cross-sectional online survey research with gay men/MSM.
Dr. Ayala is currently the founding Executive Director of the Global Forum on MSM & HIV (MSMGF), an international advocacy and technical support organization devoted to ensuring equitable access to effective HIV services for gay men and other men who have sex with men, while promoting their health and human rights worldwide.
