Christian Science Monitor Examines U.S.-Backed Program Trying to Change S. African Men's Views of Sex to Curb HIV Spread

March 3, 2005

The Christian Science Monitor on Thursday examined a U.S.-backed program, called Men as Partners, that aims to change South African men's attitudes and behaviors about sex and relationships to help curb the spread of HIV in the country. The United States' five-year, $15 billion President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief contributes to MAP, which encourages men in the country to help prevent domestic violence, promote safe sex and share the burden of caring for HIV-positive people. The program, which was organized in 1998 by EngenderHealth and has expanded through partnerships with other organizations, is run largely by volunteer peer educators and reaches thousands of men throughout South Africa each month (Siegfried, Christian Science Monitor, 3/3). The complete article is available online.
