Abstract:

Summary Most antiretroviral therapy (ART)-related policies remain blind to men’s treatment needs. Global and national programmes need to address this blindness urgently, to ensure equitable access to ART in Africa.

French
Alors que la thérapie antirétrovirale devient plus largement disponible, les questions d’accès et d’équité au sein et entre les populations deviennent de plus en plus importantes. Dans les premières années de l’ART, il y avait des inquiétudes compréhensibles qu’en raison des inégalités entre les sexes, les hommes pourraient avoir un meilleur accès que les femmes au traitement. Cependant, il y a de plus en plus de preuves que les hommes sont nettement désavantagés dans le déploiement de l’ART en Afrique subsaharienne.
