Sexual Health Services

Health4MenAt the Health4Men trained facilities you will be able to access medical services that include HIV and other STI related services:

  • STI-related services:
    • Screening and treatment:
      Free and confidential screenings for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia and genital warts.
  • HIV-related services:
    • Screening, monitoring, management & counselling:
      Free and confidential HIV screening in a discreet and relaxed environment. If you do test positive you can also expect to receive CD4 testing and counselling.
    • Treatment:
      Free antiretroviral treatment therapy, based on your CD4 count and other medical factors. Once you’re on ARVs your healthcare workers will continue to monitor your health and will be available to address any side-effects you may experience. If you test HIV+ you can commence free treatment immediately.
  • PEP:

    You can access PEP (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) if you’ve had a high risk exposure to HIV infection, provided that you test HIV negative and that you commence the treatment within 72 hours of the exposure to the virus.

  • PrEP:

         PrEP stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. It is a daily drug that can be taken by people who don’t have HIV to prevent                 them from being infected with the virus. It can prevent HIV infection even if the virus enters the body through an exchange             of sexual fluids or from an injection.

  • Other health concerns:

    In addition to HIV and other STIs, you can consult your healthcare worker if you have any other sexual health concerns, like your prostate, testicular and anal health.
