Who we are...

The Ivan Toms Centre for Health was the first Health4Men clinic, founded in 2009 and is named after the late Ivan Toms, an openly gay doctor and conscientious objector during the apartheid era. The center is supported by The Department of Health, Elton John AIDS Foundation and USAID/Linkages.

The centre provides a range of comprehensive services, including HIV screening and treatment, provision of Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and STI screening and treatment.  The centre is a key training institution for service providers in South Africa and the African region on MSM health. Approaches developed at the centre have formed the basis for training health services in ten other African countries to date, in addition to training across all provinces of South Africa.
