  8. Working with men for HIV prevention and care

    Le rôle que les relations de genre jouent dans la propagation du virus est de plus en plus connu. En exemple, dans le monde entier, les femmes sont moins nombreuses que les hommes à être en position de décider de quand et comment avoir les relations sexuelles. De même, Il apparaît clair que les femmes ne peuvent pas changer les relations dominantes de genre, qui prévaut actuellement, sans le concours de leurs partenaires masculins. Ainsi, l'engagement des hommes est un élément essentiel dans la prévention du VIH. Ce document vise à aider ceux qui travaillent avec les hommes dans le contexte de la santé sexuelle et de reproduction en général et celui de la prévention du VIH en particulier. Il examine 12 projets dont le celui de Papai. Ce dernier travaille avec les jeunes hommes de Recife au Brésil à promouvoir la participation à la santé, l'éducation et la prise en charge des enfants. L'analyse des stratégies de ces jeunes et des leçons à retenir devrait générer les besoins communs vitaux des hommes par rapport au VIH/SIDA et à leur santé et donner une idée des approches de travail efficaces avec les hommes.
