With the rise in usage of internet and mobile applications, the MSM community has shifted to virtual platforms such as websites, dating apps and social media for solicitation and networking. The virtual intervention is an innovative web based communication strategy which aims to identify and link the virtual network based MSMs with HIV prevention services. The MSM community can access counseling services, free condoms delivered to their door-step, appointment booking for HIV testing and STI screening and information and educational material on HIV.
DL TSU developed the virtual intervention and supported DSACS in its implementation. Now, it has been adopted by NACO for scale up across the country.
