HIV response needs men & boys

21 February 2017 HIV/AIDS & TB Audio by Sonke Gender Justice

Engaging men and boys can only work to the advantage of strengthening the effectiveness of efforts to address HIV in our relationships, families, communities and societies. This is the view and experience of MenEngage Africa alliance’s Steering Committee member Dr Lydia Mungherera, executive director of the Mama’s Club, a psycho-social support group that advocates for the elimination of mother-to-child HIV transmission (EMTCT) in Uganda. Listen to her explain to the alliance’s Khopotso Bodibe why it’s important to get men and boys on board as partners – not as causes of the problem – to address and eliminate HIV.
