Summary of "Feasibility and robustness of an oral HIV self-test in a rural community in South-Africa: An observational diagnostic study."

HIV-self-testing (HIVST) could be a strategy to get more people tested for HIV in resource limited settings. One of the prerequisites of a successful HIVST programme is the availability of an easy to use, valid HIV-test which is robust against field conditions and procedural errors by untrained lay users.
