#OktoberTest -4,000 young men know their HIV staus


Young gay men in Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Jakarta and Manila are afraid to do HIV testing, but are most likely to be living with HIV. #OktoberTest provides a fun, safe and friendly platform for 4,000 young gay men to know their HIV status and education on prevention and treatment for HIV.

The 2008 Commission on AIDS in Asia predicted that by 2020 nearly 50% of new HIV infections will be in young gay men. Sadly this is still the trend, especially in cities where there is concentration of young men who do not know their HIV status and are not being educated about HIV prevention and treatment. Information HIV is not being updated to how young people socialize and access information especially through the use of on-line and social media.


The project aims to have a multi-city, simultaneous campaign in October 2018 to test 4,000 young gay men in Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta and Manila, through us of on-line and off-line outreach in the communities.

Long-Term Impact

#OktoberTest will create the needed boost for awareness around HIV to the new generation, who knows the latest information on HIV prevention and treatment - and messaging that is specific to young gay men. As a campaign the reach will be more than 4,000 people the project aims to test.
