HIV self-testing (HIVST) has the potential to help achieve the 90% targets established by UNAIDS. HIVST is highly acceptable, but questions remain about how best to implement HIVST and promote linkage to care. With the recent WHO recommendation to offer HIVST as an additional approach to HIV testing services, results from pilot projects can contribute to a growing body of evidence on what works.

The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) funded studies in Uganda, Zambia and Kenya to pilot HIVST and perform rigorous impact evaluations of those pilots. The studies include advertising the availability of HIV self-tests to truck drivers and female sex workers, distribution of self-tests to women at antenatal care clinics to share with their family members including their partner, self-test distribution to female sex workers, and door-to-door home-based testing with availability of HIV self-test with provider or for later and for those not present.
