Current Affairs: Mpumalanga opens MSM clinic in Ermelo

Everyone in South Africa has the right to have access to health care services. As a result, a gay-friendly clinic in Ermelo, Mpumalanga was opened to make sure that men who have sex with men (MSM) can get the services they need.

Men who have sex with other men have the right to access health services without fear of being judged or treated differently by healthcare providers. Lively and vibrant MSM communities exist all around South Africa, but especially in our major cities, like Ermelo in Mpumalanga.

Around one in ten South African men will have sex with another man at some point in their lives, whether or not they are gay. There is a high rate of HIV and STI among men who have sex with men. This is why it's important to have MSM-friendly clinics with health services and support for the community. It means they can get the help they need to protect themselves and others from HIV.

Remember, it is important for you to get help and to speak out against people who discriminate against others based on their sexual orientation. To find a gay-friendly clinic close to you, you can go to here
