Testing @ Leicester Pride
Trade Sexual Health partnered with Leicester GUM Clinic to present a Health and Well-being Marquee offering HIV and STI screens to men attending Leicester Pride 2011. With development funding from the national CHAPS programme, the marquee offered a range of STI tests. A decision was made not to provide rapid HIV tests, overcoming ethical concerns about giving results to men when they might not be in an environment to receive them. Instead, results are provided via the GUM clinic. Over 100 men chose to use the service and an exit survey highly rated the acceptability of the intervention. Trade are now producing a tool-kit that highlights their learning from running clinical testing services at community events.
