Here’s a look at some of the HIV cure headlines over the past couple months. The ever-growing momentum towards a cure, particularly funding for cure initiatives, is encouraging.
Health4Men’s ground-breaking mobi site provides access to important sexual health information specifically for MSM who may not have access to the Internet.
It includes information for both HIV positive and negative men. The site is unique in that men can post questions to the Health4Men team and see responses on their cell phones. Information on the site is based on Health4Men’s extensive expertise on sexual healthcare for MSM, including initiating Africa’s first two clinics dedicated to MSM sexual health.
In addition to finding information on HIV and STI prevention, MSM who access the site also have access to an array of information on HIV-related treatment issues. The site includes information on mental health and lifestyle questions, responsible sex and recreational drug abuse.
The mobi site has become particularly popular with men who don’t have access to the Internet via a computer, or who are in situations where they cannot access such information on the Internet due to a lack of privacy. User statistics regarding utilisation of the service indicate a clear need for easily accessible instant sexual health information. Over the past eight months h4m.mobi has recorded an impressive 76 916 hits.
To access the service, go to h4m.mobi. Alternatively send a ‘Please call me’ or sms your postal code to 071 212 5668 and you’ll receive a link to connect.
