Confidentiality breaches, stigma and a lack of time are stopping men in Côte d’Ivoire from getting tested and treated for HIV

Interviews with men in Côte d’Ivoire reveal radical differences in the perceptions of those who do and don’t access care. Research, published in PLOS ONE, found many of the worries of men out of care are not reflected in the experiences of those with regular contact with services. Men’s perceptions were linked with their level of engagement with HIV care, with men who have regular contact with HIV testing and treatment services displaying more positive attitudes than those with little or no contact with such services. The paper can be seen at https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0211385

My life in sex: ‘I used to think HIV was a curse. Now my sex life is better than ever’

These days I try to show my dates that HIV is not a burden, but something that I’ve grown from. My viral load is undetectable, meaning I can’t infect anyone, although I’ll have to take medication for the rest of my life. Dealing with such a heavy subject with defiance, lightness and confidence is, I like to think, sexy. It also allows me to relieve people of their irrational fears of HIV.
