Engage Men’s Health offers free and confidential sexual health services to gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in the Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Bay and Buffalo City metros.
Going to a healthcare worker or doctor about sexual health can be awkward for most people, but gay, bi and other MSM often face additional challenges like homophobia, prejudice, and insensitive treatment. Engage Men’s Health understands your unique challenges and needs. What’s important to us is providing a safe environment where you can be yourself.
Engage Men’s Health is a project of OUT LGBT Well-being, a registered non-profit organisation (Reg no: 000-219-NPO), and is funded by USAID and PEPFAR through FHI 360 Linkages. It includes a clinic in Melville, Johannesburg and mobile outreach services in the Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Bay and Buffalo City metros.
