Case study

African Testing Outreach and Mentoring (ATOM)

Metro Centre

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.
