Over the past 25 years, civil society organisations have played a significant role in executing proactive outreach programmes. To raise awareness of HIV/AIDS– prevention among the target groups, they have distributed condoms, andor even syringes and needles, in an effort to reduce the prevalence of HIV/AIDS. They have supported hospital services designed for patients infected by or suffering from HIV/AIDS, such as one-stop centres and community-outreach mobile units. These services help the fill the gaps where the government cannot reach. Furthermore, civil society organisations have also run campaigns to promote better understanding between the infected and the non-infected, which have brought aboutencouraged co-existence and mutual respect.
Through the principle of “test, treat, contain,” our objective is to reach out to the groups with high-risk behaviours, equip them with the appropriate prevention methods, and encourage them to get tested if they possibly have possibly been exposed to HIV. Should the test come back positive, early testing allows them to gain access to antivirals quicker. With effective treatment early on, the viral load will be reduced, lessening the chances of the disease developing into AIDS. In addition, the chances of these people spreading HIV will also be zero, or very close to zero, allowing the disease to be contained.
Each project is planned by a panel of experts with experience in HIV prevention. Each project is also equipped with transparent monitoring, reporting, and evaluation mechanisms.
