MASYAP encourages all of its members and community members at large to get tested for HIV, and provides this service for free. The early identification of HIV enables us to help affected women and children get onto ARVs and is often a life saving intervention.
MASYAP’s on-site HTC office has been fully approved by the DHO (District Health Office), and our trained HTC counsellor offers testing there on Mondays and Tuesdays.
MASYAP also conducts HTC testing in support group districts which are not within easy reach of the office, as well as in other communities when needed. We often provide testing as part of events such as the Limbe Police HIV/AIDS candlelight memorial event and World AIDS day events.
