Start Talking: A Conversation on HIV

You might know that the iconic red ribbon stands for HIV awareness and support for people living with HIV, but what else do you know about the disease and how it affects women?

In 2015, the Singapore Committee for UN Women supported the Gender-Sensitive Response to an HIV Outbreak in the Roka Commune, Cambodia. This project responds to an urgent humanitarian situation that made international headlines when 273 people in Roka, a poor rural area of Northwestern Cambodia, were found to have been infected by HIV. The outbreak originated from the use of contaminated needles by a private health clinician. 60% of those infected are women and girls.

In light of National HIV Testing Day on 27th June, we will be partnering with Action for AIDS (AfA) to hold a free workshop, which hopes to debunk myths surrounding HIV and introduce AfA's new initiative, Ladies Night, which offers free HIV testing for women. Jing Lin, a counsellor at Anonymous Testing Service (ATS) and Lokman Hakeem Mohdar, manager for ATS and Mobile Testing Service, will speak at the panel discussion. Join us to learn more.
