APCOM x Love Foundation: Bringing Digital Health for the Community

By April 3, 2024 Newsroom

APCOM Foundation, in partnership with Love Foundation, announces a new collaborative effort aimed at enhancing digital health for the community. The signing ceremony for the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) took place at Stranger Bar, Silom Soi 4, Bangkok on 15 March 2024. 

“Community-led responses are informed and implemented by and for the communities themselves. Our partnership with Love Foundation ensures that community-generated data is used to tailor responses to services, protect the rights, and meet the needs of people living with, and key populations.”

This collaboration focuses on improving health services and information access for the Thai LGBTQI community and other key populations through the digital platforms testBKK.org and Love2Test.org. These platforms offer services such as health screenings, access to prevention and treatment information, and awareness about health conditions in a friendly and inclusive environment. 

The MoU signing ceremony was held in the vibrant community space of Silom Soi 4, marked by simplicity, fun, and enhanced community solidarity. The event kicked off with a stunning drag show performance by Sri Mala from Drag Race Thailand Season 2.

A panel discussion was then held, moderated by APCOM with speakers from Rainbow Sky Association of Thailand (RSAT), SWING, Hornet Thailand, and Love Foundation, on using data to empower the LGBTQI+ community and key populations through information and technology. 

The ceremony culminated in the signing of the MoU, with distinguished guests from Mister Gay World Thailand and directors of both APCOM and Love Foundation signing the document and taking a group photo with more than 10 organizations in attendance. The event concluded with an impressive closing drag show.

“Innovation and community fuel each other, together weaving a future of united progress.”

This partnership not only formalizes the collaboration but also reflects a commitment to the right to health and community participation. Together, APCOM Foundation and Love Foundation will continue to support access to health services and strengthen community involvement sustainably.
