Other areas of focus include MSM-focused community outreach models including interactive digital platforms, media production and topical research initiatives. With funding from PEPFAR/USAID and the Global Fund, we have trained over 3 000 health workers in the public sector to provide prejudice-free competent services to gay and bisexual men. Nurses and doctors at over 260 clinics, across all provinces, have been mentored by our highly skilled team to ensure that gay and bisexual men receive excellent treatment and care regarding their sexual health, including HIV-related services. We also ensure that gay and bisexual men can find their nearest competent clinic: click here to access this service.Last updated September 8, 2022
