Press Room : MSM OUTREACH HIV TESTING PROJECT ROUND 8 (2016)
This was the eighth round of Outreach HIV testing project in MSM venues. The first project was conducted in November 2007 and has since been repeated almost every year. Each project lasted for about two and a half months and was conducted by Action for AIDS, Singapore. This year, there was a focus on reaching out to high risk MSM population who frequent saunas and bathhouses, which are traditional “Sex on Premises” venues (SOPV) in Singapore. Other MSM venues such as clubs and bars were also targeted with special outreach events. Special attention was given to ensure that individuals who tested positive were provided with appropriate counselling and support and linked to treatment and care.
