YOUTH GROUP MEETINGS 2014/2015
Welcome to men2men, your one stop site for all you’ve ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask. This site will offer you concrete advice and up to date information on a wide range of topics to help you ensure your own health and wellbeing.
Addressing the unique needs of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM), a new professional, confidential and upmarket medical practice has been launched in Pretoria.
1081 Medical Practice provides a range of specialised medical services to gay men, with a focus on sexual health and well-being. It offers clients a friendly and accepting environment where they can access the expert services of a nurse, doctor and two counsellors.
OUT, the Pretoria-based LGBT health and well-being organisation, has offered more clarity on a recent international recommendation that gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) take preventive HIV medication.
In July, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended that these men should take daily ongoing preventive antiretroviral medication as an additional method of preventing HIV infection.
Don’t know your status? Well, if it turns out that you are HIV positive, you can only start treatment and protect yourself and your partners by taking that first important and simple step; getting tested.
Here are ten common sense reasons why you should get tested right now – and at least every six months thereafter.
Scientists have revealed that after two years of study, a group of HIV positive gay men with an undetectable viral load (thanks to antiretroviral treatment) did not transmit the virus to their partners.
While previous studies had found similar results for heterosexual couples, the new research included significant numbers of gay couples for the first time.
