The merits of HIV self-testing have been well shown during the time of COVID-19 when users could get tested at any time and place they are convenient. You should obtain self-test kits from reliable sources; and test kits with either CE or FDA approval or prequalified by WHO are preferred.
AIDS Concern encourages people at risk of sexually transmitted infections to have regular checkups. If you would like to perform a test by yourself discreetly and conveniently, self-testing is your choice.
Self-testing is a process in which a person collects a specimen, performs a test and interprets the test result in private. The HIV and Syphilis self-test offered by AIDS Concern are only screening tests. Any positive result must be confirmed by laboratory-based testing with a venous blood sample.
