Innovative programme brings HIV testing to communities in Cambodia
The results from the Cambodian model are encouraging. In 2014, implementers reported around 20 000 people from key groups were tested, which was double the number tested in 2012. If a person has a positive result on a first rapid test, they are accompanied by outreach workers to health facilities for confirmatory tests. Once a medical professional confirms the result, the person is provided with HIV treatment for free.
