    The Health sector over the years has brought up a concern in that males do not access health services. A lot has been cited as the main barrier of men not accessing health services. The clinics and Hospitals are said to be tailor made for women and our culture has also been listed as barriers with men preferring traditional healers than western medicine. How can we break such barriers? Is working with the traditional healers not a solution if we can train them and they become our advocates?
