In the past five years, considerable progress has been made towards reaching the 90-90-90 targets for men in sub-Saharan Africa by 2020. Data from eastern and southern Africa highlights this progress – from 74-64-86 in 2015 to 84-77-90 in 2019. However, significant gaps exist to reaching the targets and to close disparities with women where from 2015 to 2019 progress improved from 83-71-87 to 91-86-91. In order to reach the men left behind, challenges must be addressed and successful programmes taken to scale. In this satellite, key stakeholders from ministries of health, civil society, communities, funders, implementers and researchers will come together to both show progress towards improving HIV services for men over the past five years as well as highlighting the gaps that remain and how they could be addressed. The session is framed around men in their different roles and with intersecting identities, highlighting recent implementation data on engaging men in HIV services and amplifying their voices.
