HIV self-testing (HIVST) was introduced to overcome barriers to conventional testing services such as facility- and community-based HIV testing and counseling. It allows a person to perform and interpret their own HIV test results in a private space and time of their choice - making testing more accessible and acceptable.

Why not apply this approach to HIV testing services as well?
