Men and HIV in the ESA Region

A call to action

This pamphlet highlights the urgent need to engage men and boys more fully in the AIDS response in the Eastern and Southern Africa region. The information draws on UNAIDS’ 2016 Platform for Action on Men and HIV, and a literature review conducted by Sonke Gender Justice for UNAIDS focused on the Eastern and Southern Africa region which highlights the evidence of men’s low uptake of HIV services and disproportionately high morbidity and mortality. This pamphlet was developed by Sonke Gender Justice with technical support from UNAIDS Regional Support Team for Eastern and Southern Africa.
