HIV TEST VIDEO
MESMAC commissioned a 10 minute presentation of the 1 hour HIV test being offered in our Newcastle office. The aim was to show how this free and confidential service is carried out and to offer more choices around HIV testing. The service is set in a relaxed environment that feedback says is very welcoming and non judgemental.
