Women are more likely to be on HIV treatment
« on: May 01, 2020, 12:25:13 am »
Interesting, I really would not have expected that among PLHIV coverage of antiretroviral treatment would be higher for women than for men. Learn something new every day I suppose.

In Short:
Quote
Globally, among people living with HIV aged 15 years and older, coverage of antiretroviral therapy in 2018 was higher for women than for men. Numerous studies have shown that men are less likely than women to take an HIV test and to initiate and adhere to HIV treatment, which results in poorer clinical outcomes and a greater likelihood that they will die of AIDS-related causes. The low utilization of HIV services among men reflects general patterns of male health-seeking behaviour, which have been attributed to prevailing norms of masculinity, stigma, opportunity and other costs of attending health facilities, and inconveniently designed services (among other factors).
