A pilot study on monitoring voluntary community-based HIV testing (VCBT) was carried out in Ireland in 2018; this was facilitated by a new collaboration between statutory organisations, non-government organisations (NGOs) and other community-based organisations (CBOs) that provide VCBT services in Ireland, and was overseen by a multisectoral steering group. All four NGOs that provided VCBT services in Ireland during 2018 participated.

Of 650 tests provided by HIV Ireland, 548 were carried out at HIV Ireland offices in Dublin and 102 were carried out by the Red Door Project (RDP), an outreach drug addiction service that operates in Drogheda.
