EpiC Project Background:
Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) has been supporting the rollout of the targeted, PrEP campaign targeting young MSM to raise awareness and promote PrEP service update at CBOs’ health centers under the project since the beginning of FY20, the campaign is primarily – though not exclusively – focused on online reach and conversion due to shifting preferences among our target audiences, the potential for greater targeting afforded by online platforms, the (relatively) low cost of online advertising per size of potential audience reached, and the opportunity to test and iterate demand generation approaches quickly in digital spaces.
Starting with “PrEP Me Now” campaign with its focus on highly sexually active MSM/MSW between the ages of 19-35 broadly speaking, with sub-audiences of “well-educated, gay-identified men” and “fitness-driven men” for whom messages will be framed around reduction in HIV risk and healthy lifestyles, respectively. The focus on these two initial groups is intended to help our media agency to rapidly test and refine targeting and message framing strategies so that this “microtargeted” approach can then be applied to other audience segments. The campaign has consistently generated a positive impact toward PrEP uptakes in the previous quarters and has been re-introduced to “The Journey to Your Health” campaign in the beginning of 2021 up to the present day. The campaign is primarily designed to continue to focus on PrEP promotion with the extension to other key services namely “treatment initiation” and “U=U messaging”, specific health content for MSM who engage in Chemsex as an alarming issue in Thai MSM community, “Index-testing” as a main strategy to improve HIV case finding under the project “HIV self-testing” as an alternative testing and strategy available in FY 22.
As of now visual images that has been used in the previous year has reach a fatigue point. Meaning that a renewal of visuals both static and motion are vital in order to keep to engagement of the target audience flowing on to increase the amount of reach and also cultivating awareness in order to reach desired call-to-actions.
