Men Must Be Engaged In HIV Response

The Standard: Eliminating pediatric HIV, men should play a part
Moses Mugugunyeki, an editor at The Standard

“…Zimbabwe is making headway in achieving its Millennium Development Goal of reducing new HIV infections by half by the year 2015. … The role of men in society is unquestionable. It is for this reason that men should take their place in the HIV response, both for their own health as well as in support of women and children. … According to the research, there is lack of men participation in PMTCT and community leaders should take it upon themselves to ensure men’s engagement in preventing pediatric HIV” (2/9).
