Male-Friendly Clinics in Lesotho: Demand Creation Targeting HIV-Infected Men to Access Comprehensive Health Services

Through the support of the United States Government’s President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) introduced comprehensive men’s clinics at selected high-volume health facilities in order to scale-up the Test and Start approach among HIV-infected men. The men’s clinics provide a male-friendly environment that encourages men to get tested for HIV, and therefore be identified as HIV positive and linked to HIV care and treatment services.
