Linkage to Care

Action for AIDS (AFA) would like to make it easier for you to start your journey to better health and medical management of HIV infection.

We will subsidise your first visit to Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s Communicable Disease Center (TTSH/CDC), Singapore General Hospital (SGH), National University Hospital (NUH) & Changi General Hospital (CGH), up to a maximum of $200. This will help to cover the major portion of the cost of laboratory tests and consultation charges on your first visit.

This subsidy scheme is only applicable to Singaporeans/Permanent Residents who are clients tested HIV positive at AFA’s Anonymous Test Services (both the ATS & MTS).

A referral letter will be issued by AFA’s Clinic Manager. You must bring this referral letter when you first register at either one of the hospitals. The counter staff will make the necessary arrangement for the subsidy from AFA. Your bill will have up to $200 deducted from it.

Paddy Chew Patient Welfare Fund

This is AFA’s longest-running medications subsidy to provide critical and timely financial support to lower the cost of medication. Anti-retroviral medications are not classified as standard drugs in Singapore and the financial burden can deter adherence to treatment. Each year, we require between $60 – $80K to support PLHIV who are in need of financial assistance.

To ensure that we incorporate GIPA principles (Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS), AFA supports PLHIV who give back to the community by participating in educational activities and AIDS awareness talks. In doing so, they help us reach and influence more people, and at the same time are voices for other PLHIVs.

HIV+ Pregnant Mothers’ Fund

To eliminate mother-to-child transmission, we provide assistance for HIV positive mothers who cannot afford anti-HIV treatment, in order to prevent transmission of HIV to their baby.

Care for Family Fund

High levels of stigma, discrimination and ignorance means that many people who are diagnosed with HIV will lose their jobs. Besides providing support to those directly impacted, we also recognise that support needs to reach caregivers or affected family and loved ones. Due to shortage of funding, we can only provide up to $400 per family per year. We would like to increase the funding so more people are aware and can begin to take active steps to integrate back into society.
