African Testing Outreach and Mentoring (ATOM)
MAC (through TIDES Foundation) funded Metro to undertake the ATOM project.The premise is that an integrated approach is best. So Metro provides culturally-appropriate and proactive one-to-one information and advice and interactive small media distribution to encourage African people to test for HIV, accompanied by the offer of a rapid HIV test in a community setting (in this case a GP surgery in Woolwich). Referrals follow on after BOTH negative and positive test results. People diagnosed positive are referred to local GU and/or SLHP, and people diagnosed negative are referred immediately to counselling, mentoring, or groups, mostly offered locally. This approach recognises that HIV testing is not an isolated event.
