BHA began working together with the Destitution Project in September 2016. Since then the focus has been on providing on the spot HIV testing and information about HIV and sexual health.
From September 2016 to March 2017 BHA completed 184 one – to – one consultations at the Destitution project while also completing Point of Care HIV tests for 34 people, all of whom were from ethnic minorities.
The feedback received has been that the Point of Care Testing Service has been very well received and greatly appreciated. BHA acknowledges and appreciates the warm welcome and assistance received from the Destitution Project staff and volunteers in the delivery of this service. The BHA looks forward to continuing this successful and important project in the future.
