Program Components

1.1. Girlfriend and Boyfriend HIV Testing

This program is focused on HIV testing for young people who are sexually active and dating. We acknowledge that young usually assume that they are HIV negative cause of their age and exclude the need for testing for HIV before engaging in unprotected sex. For that our program works on increasing demand for HIV testing among sexually active young couples (aged 13 to 24) who are dating. We provide youth-friendly HIV testing to young people at our offices and mobile testing during community outreach activities. The program is meant to reduce new infections in young people by creating a culture to seek HIV testing services.
