What do shebeens (township taverns frequented by local residents in township areas) have in common with World Aids Day? Health4Men’s third Shebeen/Tavern challenge!
It is that time of the year again and this year there will be 8 shebeens participating from Khayelitsha and Gugulethu and 5 from Soweto.
Dr. Kevin Rebe co-leads the Health4Men project in Cape Town. He is a specialist physician who has specialised in HIV and infectious diseases. Kevin has a particular interest in sexual health issues affecting MSM (men who have sex with men, irrespective of their sexual orientation) and has published widely on diverse aspects of HIV.
The STAR Newspaper spoke to Dr. Rebe about the complexities that some men who have sex with men and transgender women sometimes have to endure to get proper medical care in South Africa.
