HIV self-testing (HIVST) is an effective and acceptable HIV testing services approach. WHO first recommended HIVST in 2016, with an updated recommendation in 2019. Since then, uptake of HIVST in national policies and routine implementation has grown considerably. This presentation will cover the latest updates on HIVST, innovations and what’s coming next.
