We hope to lead deeper discussions with the local community through outreach, as well as to build a trusting relationship with them, and to raise their understanding about HIV prevention measures. The outreach team extends to places that MSM gather, for examples gay bars, sauna and established parties. The staff will explain knowledge of safe sex to the community, and provide sexual health supplies. If needed, follow-up referrals to HIV antibodies testing will be arranged.
Outreach via the Internet
Complementary to the advanced development of internet and MSM’s rocketing use of the World Wide Web, we place a great share of outreach on the internet platform. We hope to promote appropriate knowledge of sex & safe sex and encourage sexual health checks effectively. Just as we update the latest news of Aids Concerns on our website, the public can express their views too. This mutual communication will help us understand the community better.
One of the best aspect about the internet is multimedia, hence we adapt a multi-disciplinary approach in our online outreach. We have established a website targeted for the MSM community (www.men2mentesting.com). It allows visitors to obtain latest work of Aids Concern and information about HIV, AIDS and other STIs. Moreover, we advertise safe sex related messages on several MSM websites. We too enter online chat rooms that are popular amongst MSM to answer any questions about AIDS and sexual health.
Lastly, we are registered on an online instant messenger service (MSN: firstname.lastname@example.org) and a social network (Facebook: email@example.com), for MSM to communicate with us at their convenience.
