GlasGOwGetTested campaign shortlisted for digital award

We are delighted to announce that our GlasGOwGetTested campaign, developed in collaboration with Terrance Higgins Trust UK (THT) has been shortlisted at this year’s Herald Digital Transformation Awards for the Best Use of Technology in Healthcare Award.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde commissioned THT to design a social marketing intervention to encourage Gay, Bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) to test for HIV at a frequency based on their levels of sexual risk.

Nicky Coia, Health Improvement Manager (Sexual Health) said: “The benefits of testing are clear.  If people test positive for HIV, they can access immediate treatment which means they can live long and healthy lives as well as being unable to transmit the virus to others. If they test negative, they can access ways to prevent HIV in the future including pre-exposure-prophylaxis (PrEP).”
