About Us

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 the FHI 360 EpiC project. It includes a clinic in Melville, Johannesburg and mobile outreach services in the Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Bay and Buffalo City metros.

Since its inception in 2003, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) has supported a world safer and more secure from infectious disease threats. It is the iconic brand of U.S. government engagement in health, development, security, and diplomacy, unparalleled in its capacity to deliver clear, measurable, and transformative results and impact. Working in over 50 countries, PEPFAR has transformed the global HIV/AIDS response and supports more than 14 million people with lifesaving antiretroviral treatment.

USAID is the world’s premier international development agency and a catalytic actor driving development results. USAID’s work advances U.S. national security and economic prosperity, demonstrates American generosity, and promotes a path to recipient self-reliance and resilience. It leads international development and humanitarian efforts to save lives, reduce poverty, strengthen democratic governance and help people progress beyond assistance.
