Expanding Access to HIV Self-Testing

PSI just launched the report “Expanding Access to HIV Self-Testing: A Market Development Approach.” This report is the result of the exciting work PSI is doing to understand and develop the HIV self-testing (HIVST) market.

With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, PSI analyzed the size of the HIVST market in nine African countries: Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The project also examined global supply constraints and made recommendations to develop a healthy HIVST market. With its focus on market sizing and understanding global supply constraints, the analysis serves as a complement to other HIVST projects including the UNITAID/PSI HIV Self-Testing AfRica project (STAR), the largest evaluation of HIV self-testing in Africa to date.
