Community-based outreach and education programmes are key in improving access to HIV prevention and treatment services for key affected populations who are often marginalised due to stigma and discrimination. Outreach workers, a vast majority of whom are members of the key affected populations themselves, are deployed as peer educators to disseminate targeted information, education and communication materials about HIV prevention, sexual and reproductive health, medical and legal aid referral services, as well as safe sex commodities such as condoms and lubricants. This programme also aims to address gender and sexuality issues, and drug use, violence and other compounding factors that intensify HIV vulnerability.

In 2010, approximately 68,000 outreach contacts were made with sex workers (SWs), transsexuals (TSs) and men who have sex with men (MSM) collectively through the work of ten Partner Organisations nationwide, with more than 500,000 condoms distributed.
