Abstract

"AIDS Concern first started its VCT service to the men who have sex with men community in 2001. In 2004, the sex industry prevention programme launched its first rapid test VCT service to sex workers’ clients and in 2005, the cross border prevention programme has pioneered its first study using VCT as an behavioral intervention tool in the cross border truck drivers’ community. As the agency has gradually scaling up its VCT service within vulnerable communities and the promotion of early testing, the possibility of finding positive cases may rise as more people get tested. This guideline serves the purpose of standardizing the procedures in handling tested HIV positive clients (both confirmed and preliminary) to maintain a professional service standard as well as preserving the interests of service users. This guideline will be updated or revised to keep in pace with service development."
