PRIDE HIV Test Activities

Key Challenges

As of 2015, the current status of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 target in Switzerland was 81-91-96, showing a deficit in the number of people diagnosed.2 In the past, testing opportunities implemented at large Gay Pride events have not been adequately staffed and the testing areas have been limited due to capacity and costs.

There is a lack of awareness on the possibility of getting tested at Gay Pride celebrations as promotional materials have not reached the target audience.
