Abstract

"In order to develop strategies to promote voluntary HIV testing among marginalized populations such as MSM, Hijras, FSWs and IDUs, it is crucial to understand the various barriers to and facilitators for HIV testing from the perspectives of these populations. Thus, the purpose of this study was to explore and understand the barriers and facilitators of knowing one’s HIV status - including utilization of government HIV counseling and testing centers - among the marginalized populations such as MSM, Hijras, FSWs, and IDUs in Chennai."
