Tailored HIV Self-Testing Approaches


HIV self-testing (HIVST) has transformed the HIV testing landscape, allowing a person to test a sample of their own blood or oral fluid and interpret the result at their convenience. HIVST doubles general population HIV testing uptake compared to standard HIV testing services (Jamil, M. 2021) and has increasingly expanded the reach of HIV testing, particularly among populations unlikely or unwilling to visit a health facility or traditional testing sites. The COVID-19 pandemic significantly accelerated HIVST in many countries.
