The integration of VCT, PrEP navigator and HIV case management in Taiwan​

Green slide with LSHTM Event in white text

​​This presentation will explore Taiwan's integrated approach to HIV prevention and treatment. The talk will delve into three-in-one integrated programs: Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT), PrEP navigation, and HIV case management. VCT provides confidential testing and counselling services to individuals who may have been exposed to HIV. PrEP navigators assist people in accessing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Finally, HIV case management offers ongoing support and care to people living with HIV. By examining these interconnected programs, the talk will illuminate how Taiwan is working to effectively address HIV and ensure comprehensive care for those affected.​
