His Health website targets black gay men in the US

His Health website targets black gay men in the US

CREATED ON // Thursday, 13 October 2016 Author // Andrew Shaw

His Health is a community of healthcare providers and advocates passionately committed to raising the standard of care for American black gay men.

The website is a response to the number of black gay men who are becoming HIV – half of black gay men will contract HIV in their lifetime, if current diagnosis rates continue.

His Health:

  • Provides accredited and expert-led continuing education courses that count toward the credits medical professionals already need to maintain their medical licensure;
  • Offers portraits of innovative models of care including Project Silk, a CDC funded, Pittsburgh-based recreational safe space and sexual health centre rooted in house ball culture, and Connecting Resources for Urban Sexual Health, a sexual health clinic created by and for LGBTQ youth of colour; and
  • Gives easy access to evidence-based resources to support the delivery of high quality, culturally affirming health care services for black men who have sex with men.
