On June 18th, the MSMGF and ANOVA Health Institute presented a webinar on lessons learned from the Health4Men state-sector sexual health program targeting men who have sex with men (MSM) in South Africa. This successful program has now provided care to more than 8000 MSM in 4 provinces across the country and is being extended nationally. The project spans both urban and rural settings with diverse operational requirements.
A number of issues were discussed, including creating clinical spaces that are welcoming, comfortable, and speak to the specific health needs of gay men and other MSM with a broad range of identities. Branding and marketing of MSM-targeted services were also considered, as well as specific clinical concerns regarding desirable and appropriate HIV, STI, and prevention services.
A recording of this webinar is now available online at http://www.msmgf.org/html/webinars/ClinicalManagement.
