Opinion: On International Men's Day, Continue Working to Protect Men, Boys From HIV

November 20, 2013

On November 19, "as we celebrate International Men's Day, we need to 'step up' for every man and boy, keeping them safe as they continue the battle against HIV," Robert Ferris, chief of the Technical Leadership & Research Division in USAID's Office of HIV/AIDS, writes in the agency's "IMPACTblog." He continues, "This means prioritizing access to HIV prevention services like voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC)"; "scaling up evidence-based structural and behavioral interventions to remove barriers to HIV services"; "identifying more men and boys who are HIV-positive and enrolling them in quality HIV care and treatment services"; and "continuing the search for a safe and effective HIV vaccine and possibly even a cure." Ferris concludes, "On this International Men's Day, let's continue our work to keep men and boys safe from HIV" (11/19).
