For a long time, the statistics have shown men lagging behind in screening, testing and accessing treatment across a range of diseases. By having these spaces, we hope to unlock opportunities for them to get the much-needed access, and where needed, treatment, to help them live long and healthy lives,' said Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Patricia Van der Ross. </p><p><strong><br></strong></p><p><strong><br></strong></p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p></div>2024-06-20T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#4dc70c10-2193-4bba-85d3-0f033ab6f0cd;L0|#04dc70c10-2193-4bba-85d3-0f033ab6f0cd|City Health Department;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#f85ecd40-fb1e-4970-9abc-aa18bd4486f7;L0|#0f85ecd40-fb1e-4970-9abc-aa18bd4486f7|HIV;GP0|#986dc1d5-9de8-46bc-aee2-f4911c1e5735;L0|#0986dc1d5-9de8-46bc-aee2-f4911c1e5735|STI10
