Breaking Barriers and Stereotype on Men’s Health

The country’s health sector has come a long way in improving the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) treatment by empowering people living with HIV tools to live longer and healthier lives.

In continuing to making theses strides, the City of Ekurhuleni will launch the Men Living with HIV campaign on Friday, 27 November, at Ramokonopi sport ground in Katlehong.

Member of Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Health and Social Services Cllr Nomadlozi Nkosi encourages men to heed the call and be part of the campaign.

 “We call on men to come in their numbers and participate in conversations about men’s health, and break the barriers and stereotype that men do not freely engage issues about their health,” said the MMC.

The campaign will focus on men’s health and wellbeing with a particular focus on HIV care, treatment, initiation and retention.

Men who live in and around the area are invited to come and engage healthcare workers and the City’s stakeholders, including those in the public and private sector as well as civil society.
