Deadline : 12 August 2018

Consultancy Period : until 15 September 2018






Founded in 2007, APCOM is a coalition of members – governments, UN partners, non-profits and community based organisations – from Asia and the Pacific. APCOM represent a diverse range of interests working together to advocate on, highlight and prioritise HIV and human rights issues that affect the lives of gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) and other communities affected by HIV in Asia and the Pacific. Our goals are to improve the well-being of the key affected communities in the region through increased investment, coverage and quality of sexual health services and human rights protection. 




Started in 2014, testBKK is a pilot and Bangkok-based campaign of testXXX, APCOM’s flagship regional sexual health campaign targeting young gay men in Asia-Pacific cities with high HIV prevalence among gay men and other men who have sex men (MSM) demography. TestBKK aims to increase the HIV prevention, support and care service uptakes, while also empower young Thai gay men to exercise their sexual health and rights. By the end of 2017, TestBKK has contributed to more than 14,000 HIV service uptakes, such as HIV and STI testing, PrEP1 initiation, and ART2 retention, by young MSM in Bangkok. Currently co-funded by LINKAGES Thailand led by FHI 360 Thailand funded by PEPFAR and USAID, TestBKK has more than 60,000 Facebook Page follower, 38,000 YouTube channel subscribers and 9,000 monthly website visitors. 


testBKK runs an online booking platform ( in which young gay men in Bangkok can book HIV testing in testBKK’s clinic partners in advance, so that they can come at the reserved time and proceed directly to meet the nurse/doctor without having to queue.  


There are four testBKK’s clinic partners located across Bangkok ( They are all gay-friendly or gay-exclusive clinic ensuring stigma-free, friendly, safe, quick, confidential and anonymous service to young gay clients.   




The consultant is expected to create a web-based reality show that is based on the following creative brief: 







The reality show is expected to provide an entertainment value to the target audience, while also educating them with HIV and sexual health knowledge. In specific, after watching the show, the target audience is expected to: 


o the easy process of booking HIV testing in advance via testBKK’s online booking platform 

o the importance of knowing their HIV status or other HIV/sexual health topic (such as STI symptoms, PrEP, HIV testing window period, how to live healthily as HIVpositive person) o testBKK’s partnered clinics that provide HIV testing services in Bangkok 


o that HIV testing is free/affordable, easy and quick o that they will get confidential and MSM-friendly services at the clinics 

o that knowing HIV status is important for their healthcare planning and lifestyle 


o reserve HIV testing booking through testBKK’s online booking platform o get HIV tested every 3 to 6 months 



TONE: Comical/humorous, entertaining, educational 




The format of the “reality show” is open to any interpretation as long as it matches the suggested tone and speaks to the target audience. The whole series is expected to consist of five episodes, each is approximately 12-15 minutes in length, including the opening and closing credits. 


Each episode should contain two bumper scenes. Bumper scene means an interstitial scene/snippet that does not have to connect with the core content of the show and can be a standalone video. These bumper scenes aim to advertise a specific goal, such as the following: 


o Bumper Scene 1 should advertise testBKK’s online booking platform. The bumper should be able to convey how easy it is too book the test on testBKK’s booking platform via a smartphone. This bumper can be identical across every episodes, and should be less than 20 seconds, and located in the first one third segment of the episode. 


o Bumper Scene 2 should show a key health message narrated by a nurse/doctor from testBKK’s clinic partners. Different episode has different “bumper scene 2”, and thus, different key health messages per bumper. This bumper should be less than 30 seconds and can be placed anywhere within the episode as long as it is not adjacent to Bumper Scene 1. 




The webseries will be published simultaneously on testBKK’s YouTube channel ( and testBKK’s Facebook page (




The casts involved in the reality show should be self-identified Thai young gay men. Casting gay social influencers is highly recommended.  The language for the webseries should be Thai.
