Abstract

This session reports on the development and implementation of online and mobile HIV/AIDS outreach and prevention programmes to protect public health and promote human rights through a community-owned response with populations disproportionately at risk of HIV infection: men that have sex with men, male sex workers and transgenders. The project’s use of mobile and online technologies removed barriers to learning; enabled education to be delivered not-for-profit; and makes sex and human rights education available to the most marginalised in Thailand. The project takes advantage of multiple entry points and opportunities for behaviour/practice change to reduce the incidence of HIV through a peer education via on and offline social networks. Supporting the human right to healthcare without discrimination, all project resources were produced in collaboration with the targeted community stakeholders to precipitate an enabling environment to address social, legal and educational barriers.
