South Africa's mass rollout of antiretroviral therapy (ART) a decade ago changed the face of the AIDS epidemic in the country. Various populations have, however, not benefited equally. Treatment programmes have been successful in reaching women, who make up two-thirds of those receiving treatment in state sector clinics, but less so in reaching men. This is even more apparent for South African men who have sex with men (MSM), who have historically been ignored for directed service provision, despite being a key population at high risk of HIV acquisition and transmission.
