New York City's public health 'warrior' revamps HIV messaging

Beneath Grand Central Station, the doors of a downtown 6 train open to reveal one of the New York City Department of Health's newest public service announcements: A simple poster with two young men embracing tenderly urges riders to take an HIV test.

Easing the HIV Burden

In recent years, two remarkable studies have emerged that provide real solutions for people living with HIV who want to avoid passing the virus on to others.

South Africa: Silent Suffering - Men and HIV (Video)

Why are South African men reluctant to test for HIV, to start and stay on ART, and to join support groups? Is it that health services are not men-friendly? Is it an idea of masculinity that mandates men to be stoic, to hide pain as a weakness and not to talk about their feelings?
