Abstract: Men and boys are a critical but often overlooked group in efforts to improve the health of people living with HIV. They are, therefore, one of the targets of Swaziland’s Ministry of Health (MOH) programme, Maximising ART for Better Health and Zero New HIV Infections (MaxART). The ministry is committed to increasing male involvement in health services, and engaging men and boys in strengthening HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support. This is not only for improving men’s health, but also for preventing infections and supporting their partners in accessing HIV and AIDS services.
