Title Enabling HIV self-testing in South Africa
Creator Richter, M L Venter, W D F Gray, A
Subject Public health HIV, HIV-testing, self-testing, policy
Description In a South African context, we consider the implications of the United States Food and Drug Administration’s recent approval of the OraQuick HIV self-testing kit. We argue that current law and policy inhibit the roll-out of accurate and well-regulated self-testing kits, and create a loophole for sale in supermarkets, but not pharmacies.
