Be aware that you will be reported and in the past (I don"t know currently), foreigners with HIV were deported.   I do know that Singapore no longer prohibits those with HIV from visiting as tourists..... but it was up until a few years ago.

So before you get tested, find out from other sources.  Many Singaporeans come to Bangkok for testing and treatment as HIV+ is common and not medically or politically stigmatized. 

The most commom way to get that treatment is to go to a private hospital and get a script and buy the medication at the Thai Red Cross (cheaper) or obtain the medicine from the private hospital.   (I get mine at Pattaya Memorial).

The records were leaked by a foreigner in just such a situation, American Mikhy Farrera Brochez, who was deported after serving jail time for drug-related crimes and fraud, including hiding his HIV status. He was able to access the records with help from his boyfriend, a Singaporean doctor.
Singapore is one of only a handful of developed nations that still have laws restricting the long-term stay of foreign nationals with HIV – laws that have been deemed a human rights violation by the United Nations.

One caveat to the above posts which are a few years old... I have read (on this forum - But not confirmed) reports that The Red Cross is requiring additional documentation such as a recent Viral Load /CD 4 or proof of HIV status test result before they will dispense meds... My guess is that they are getting people in who are not HIV but buy a 6 month supply of drug to sell in their home country for a HUGE profit
