Singapore: More Stepping Forward for Anonymous HIV Testing, Says Advocacy Group
December 11, 2012
The advocacy group Action for AIDS (AfA) in Singapore reports that more individuals are taking anonymous HIV tests. So far, 1,368 persons have been tested for HIV at AfA's mobile van in the past 11 months. Of this number, seven persons tested positive. The van started testing in December 2011. Another site, the Anonymous Test Site, which works at a clinic operated by the Department of Sexually Transmitted Infections Control, tested 540 individuals during one month of this year. This clinic conducts more comprehensive blood tests. A total of 5, 521 persons in Singapore have been diagnosed with HIV.
