Our strategy: engaging, adapting, and delivering for clients throughout their treatment journey.
By listening to men and optimizing programming at every phase, we can reach clients where they are and help end AIDS for all.
We listened to men.
Understanding means deep listening. To-date we have interviewed 2,200 men, in South Africa alone. This helps us understand their mindsets and needs so we can adapt our services to meet these them.
Do I want to know?
This scares me.
But I can't admit that.
I feel alone.
It's just for women and children.
The pills are worse than the disease.
The nurse did not respect me.
The line was very long.
My boss is angry I was late.
I know it's important. But!
Soon I'll be able to skip the clinic and get my meds (which really aren't bad at all) at the supermarket.
This is good.
MenStar Core Package of Services
We created a Core Package of Services informed by men's insights.
And we aligned these services to men’s needs across the treatment cascade.
MenStar Coalition partners develop programs based on the Core Package framework.
Creating Holistic Change Together
By coordinating these efforts, we can bring more men back into care, and dramatically improve their healthcare experience.
MenStar has put a particular focus on aligning the efforts of public and private sector organizations.
