Seoul Offers Free, Anonymous AIDS Testing to Enhance Public Health

Seoul – The Seoul city government announced on Wednesday that it is offering free and anonymous AIDS testing at community health centers across all 25 districts of the city. Initiated in 2015, this public health service aims to facilitate early detection and prevention of the disease among the city’s population.

According to Yonhap News Agency, the testing process is quick, providing results within 30 minutes, and involves a simple procedure where a drop of blood is collected from a person's finger. As of last year, Seoul has conducted 151,932 tests, identifying 1,064 early-stage infections. The city emphasizes the importance of this service in controlling the spread of AIDS and ensuring public health safety. Individuals requiring further testing are referred to the Seoul government's Research Institute of Public Health and Environment for detailed examinations.
