Public health blindness towards men in HIV programmes in Africa

Cornell, M., Cox, V., & Wilkinson, L.

For some years, concerns have been raised about the blindness towards men in HIV and antiretroviral therapy (ART) services in Africa. Compared to women in African ART programmes, men are less likely to be diagnosed with HIV, less likely to start ART, more likely to start ART with advanced HIV disease and at older ages and have shorter life expectancy and higher mortality rates on ART.
