South Africa: Neglected Group Has HIV/AIDS Support
March 2, 2009
Soweto's Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital (CHBH) on Thursday launched an HIV/AIDS program for men who have not yet received services through the national HIV treatment roll-out, in particular, men who have sex with men (MSM). The new program, Health4Men, operates a clinic in Cape Town, and another is being established at Woodstock Hospital in partnership with the Western Cape Department of Health. Services will include free HIV testing, CD4 count tests, STD treatment, and psychosocial support.
