Men are missing in large numbers from HIV prevention and treatment services. As a result, men are about 70% more likely to die from an AIDS-related illness than women.

In most countries, men living with HIV are less likely than women to know their status, less likely to initiate ART, less likely to remain engaged in care, and less likely also to be virally suppressed.

Therefore, in order to succeed in achieving the ambitious Fast Track goals to ‘end AIDS by 2030’, there needs to be accelerated action at multiple levels in order to reach men in all their diversity with HIV services by addressing existing barriers that impede men’s use of HIV services and scaling up proven approaches.

This clearing house provides the latest resources, research and guidance on how to address this ‘blind spot’ and effectively reach men in all their diversity with HIV services.
