Test, Link and Treat Pilar Population

Key Challenges

Testing campaigns have been previously implemented by the government, however there is scope for improvement in their reach and success. Due to budget constraints, it is difficult to improve these campaigns.

Furthermore, once people are diagnosed with HIV, linkage to the health care system and engagement in the process may be challenging due to a lack of information and bureaucracy.3
