The activity that OUT is focussing on, is the provision of bio-medical services to gay men and men who have sex with men (MSM) in Tshwane (Pretoria), with the specific focus for this Lessons Learned Document, on providing Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) at the OUT Clinic and at other mobile sites, such as sex clubs, as well as at mobile events, such as Gay Pride. This activity aimed to achieve the target of reaching 33 clients, provided with PEP medication, for the period January till June 2014.
