Health4Men is an innovative project addressing men’s diverse sexual health needs through free medical and psychosocial services specifically designed for men. In particular, our services are aimed at vulnerable and marginalised groupings of men, including MSM (men who have sex with men, irrespective of whether they are gay or not), youth, commercial sex workers and men from disadvantaged communities.
