Voluntary Counselling and Testing is a service which permits people to talk with a counsellor about whether they are likely to get infected with HIV, identify ways by which they can prevent getting infected with HIV and get a blood test to discover whether or not they are infected with HIV.

Permanent Secretary Luis de Shong said in a release that nurses from the Community Health Service and representatives from non-governmental organisations are listed among the participants.

The workshop will be co-ordinated by the HIV AIDS/STI Prevention and Control Unit within the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment.
