A rapid HIV testing scheme is to be relaunched in bars and LGBT community centres in Dublin this weekend.
The Know Now scheme, which had been in 19 places with the support of the HSE last year, has not run in the capital since the LGBTI Equality Network (Glen) closed.
HIV Ireland has replaced Glen so that the service can continue. Last year the scheme tested 1,465 people and found that 21 were positive.
Counsellors will be available after testing, which takes about 30 seconds, at Pantibar, Boilerhouse and The George, as well as Outhouse, for anyone who is found to have the virus.
