In India, to date, limited evidence exists on virtual interventions. The Virtual Intervention for MSM in Delhi is one such endeavour that can be considered as the first government-led and cost-effective intervention incorporated in the existing TI program, that provides HIV prevention, care, and treatment services to MSMs active on virtual platforms.
This virtual intervention aimed to identify and link the MSMs using virtual platforms with the HIV services.
The objectives of virtual intervention were:
- To increase the HIV prevention coverage by reaching the MSM population active on virtual platforms using virtual interventions for service provisions
- To enhance the coverage of HIV testing and treatment services
- To provide information virtually to the MSM communities relevant to their sexual practices, identities, and HIV status
