4 August 2017 - Men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people (TG) in Vietnam are disproportionately affected by HIV. The USAID SHIFT project is helping long-standing PEPFAR partner Blue Sky Club use creative and cost-effective techniques to increase awareness of HIV risk behaviors and services for these communities. These include revamping Blue Sky’s Facebook Fanpage to enhance MSM and TG access to information and resources to self-assess for HIV risks and access MSM and TG-friendly HIV testing and treatment. On July 28th USAID SHIFT assisted Blue Sky Club to host Let Me Say -- the first in a series of Facebook Livestream talk shows on HIV. Hosts Dr. Nguyen Tan Thu (renowned HIV physician and PLHIV advocate), actor B.B. Tran, and M.C. Pham Hoai Nam discussed amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) and their significant impact on HIV risk behaviors among the MSM and TG communities, as well as the importance of HIV treatment adherence. They tackled difficult but real questions many MSM and TG face, like how ATS affects sexual behavior and judgement, what happens when users experiment with mixing ATS and other substances, and why it is essential to stay on treatment even when someone living with HIV feels healthy. The event was major success, having been viewed more than 16,900 times so far and prompting nearly 100 comments and questions from community members. Representatives from Ho Chi Minh City Provincial AIDS Center – which support Blue Sky Club and the MSM and TG communities – expressed their appreciation and support. USAID SHIFT will help Blue Sky host additional Livestream events in coming months, including one in August on HIV myths and condom use.
