Title: Uptake and Acceptability of Oral HIV Self Testing among Community Pharmacy Clients in Kenya A Feasibility Study
Abstract: While HIV testing and counselling is a key entry point for treatment as prevention, over half of HIV-infected adults in Kenya are unaware they are infected. Offering HIV self-testing (HST) at community pharmacies may enhance detection of undiagnosed infections. We assessed the feasibility of pharmacy-based HST in Coastal Kenya.
