Abstract

Men who have sex with men (MSM) are at high risk for HIV acquisition and transmission and face significant barriers in gaining access to health-care services. Nancy Phaswana-Mafuya, Stefan Baral and Travis Sanchez are leading a team of investigators embarking on an implementation science study that aims to improve HIV care outcomes of South African MSM living with HIV infection.
