Tailoring HIV Interventions to Men's Needs

July 24, 2009

"Emerging evidence suggests that we are far more successful at providing combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) to women than to men," according to a Lancet comment. The authors write that "men's health-seeking behaviour are poorly understood in the AIDS epidemic, and encouraging men to get tested and into treatment is a major challenge, but one that is poorly recognised." They conclude that "far from being seen as a challenging group requiring specific interventions, reflections on men and HIV/AIDS are usually limited to their culpability as drivers of the epidemic" (Mills et al., 7/25).
